This Optometrist ran a special promotion with Groupon which stated: includes an exam with glaucoma screening, and $85 towards contact lens fitting. I VERIFIED ALL OF THUS AND MORE IN PERSON BEFORE I PAID. The groupon "deal" assumes they will give you a prescription for the lenses when you are finish. They would not issue me a prescription unless I pre-bought the lenses with them for over $500! These lenses are less than $150 at Costco, which is where I wanted to purchase them. Doctor Kim and his receptionist Lee said they couldn't release a prescription until I paid for the contacts only with them! I complained to the Board of Optometry (916) 575-7170 and spoke with Brad in enforcement. He said this usually happens with Groupon deals like.this where the business is trying to make money on people that don't know the law. He is going to investigate and file a complaint upon investigating and verifying the facts.
BE VERY CAREFUL OF GROUPON DEALS AND THIS BUSINESS. THEY WILL NOT HONOR THE LAW AND RELEASE THE PRESCRIPTION. THEY WILL HIDE BEHIND THE CONTACTS REQUIRING "ADDITIONAL FITTING" AND WILL OVERCHARGE YOU FOR THEIR LENSES AT OVER TRIPLE THE ACTUAL PRICE!!!
I AM GOING TO LEAVE FEEDBACK ON YELP AND OTHER CONSIMRR SITES, SO I APOLOGIZE IF YOU'VE SEEN THIS POSTING BEFORE. BUYER BEWARE,
