Trust Your Vision to Our Eye Doctor in WalMart
Did you know that Walmart is the largest producer of finished prescription eyeglasses in the nation, and also the second largest provider of optical goods in the country? In fact, production at one of their main labs (Fayetteville, Arkansas) runs 24 hours a day, with a production record of 11,000 pairs of eyeglasses in one day! That information alone shows how millions of Americans trust and turn to Walmart Vision Center for their eyewear needs. Let’s take a closer look at all the reasons why:
Historical View of WalMart
An understanding of Walmart Vision Center’s origins will give you a greater appreciation for this vision giant. How did it begin, and how did it grow into the valued company it is now?
In 1991, Walmart entered the optical market with a line of affordable prescription lenses. In 2000, they began offering premium lenses, such as Zeiss. Customers were satisfied immediately with this upgrade, and the company moved forwards with providing high quality eyewear products that exceeded industry standards. For example, Walmart was one of the first optical businesses to offer anti-reflective and anti-scratch lens coatings. Many other large-scale retail stores didn’t have the resources to include these features.
At this point, there are approximately 3,000 of their Vision Centers located in Walmart stores and Sam’s Clubs. The selection of frames and lenses is massive, including plenty of designer glasses at a low budget price. In addition, they offer a full range of contact lenses and eye exams by qualified optometrists.

If you are among the 85 million Baby Boomers in the United States and Canada (born between 1946 and 1964), you've probably noticed your eyes have changed. Most notably, presbyopia - the normal, age-related loss of near focusing ability - usually becomes a problem in our 40's, requiring new vision correction solutions. Learn about measures you can take to keep seeing clearly for years to come.
Just as our physical strength decreases with age, our eyes also exhibit an age-related decline in performance - particularly as we reach our 60's and beyond. Some age-related eye changes are perfectly normal, but others may signal a disease process. It's important to recognize signs and symptoms, and perhaps even more important to mitigate the effects of aging with some simple and common-sense strategies.
