Bad customer service. I felt like a number and a nuance to the optometrist work day. Purchased 2 glasses and I made a courtesy call after 7 days to see if they were in. One pair was in and was told to wait a few more days for the second pair to come in. Was rudely greeted when I arrived to the store at day 12 to see if my glasses were in yet. She was less reluctant to help me because it appears unless the store calls the customer back, they assume the glasses aren't in. Was more or less shoved out the door with the one pair that was ready. The rep just handed it to me and sent me on my way. No adjustments or anything. Just plopped it on the table and said here. When I questioned the second pair, she told me to wait another 3 days.

I understand they can't make my glasses appear, but if the glasses were not ready by day 10, it would have been nice to have been given a call. I spent good money on two pairs of glasses to be sent on my way without anything more than an attitude.

Would highly suggest going to the location in Lanham instead. Have had a much better experience there.

UPDATE!!!

I finally received my glasses on day 19! ....to my own intervention I might add. After my not so pleasant experience I reviewed earlier, I was still in limbo about where my glasses were. No one called me to give me an update on my glasses. I was fed up waiting and went in on day 19 to see if my glasses were ready.

When I arrived I was asked if I was given a call to say they were ready...NO!.....Long and behold there they were in the store. ARE YOU KIDDING ME! The lady who I assumed to be the manager dealt with me in a 180degree manner than the other employee. Asked if I needed adjustment, the whole nine. As if someone had tipped them off to my bad review. Kudos to them.

In all fairness, the glasses were VERY affordable comped to others in the region. And the quality was top notch. The glasses are a very good deal for those looking for a decent pair. Just have to sacrifice good customer service.

Bump to 3 Stars for corporate getting back to me and at least delivering good product.

I have not been impressed with my experience here. It took a month in half to receive my other pair of glasses . I called about 5x within the month and they just said they were on their way and it might take a while since they were coming from Hong Kong. Come to find out, I came in today to pick up my other pair( they finally arrived yesterday) and was told by an associate that he blamed follow-up because they didn't bother to call the company to see where they were. He said they had to be remade for some reason but I was never made aware of that, I was just told the same thing. He said I could have gotten them earlier if follow up had called the company and had been proactive. It's not great to know if I break my glasses I could possibly go 2 months without them. I am reluctant to order any glasses from this company again if I know efficiency is not their top priority.

Okay,, Decided that I had to redo this review because the District Manager called me and genuinely seemed concerned about my experience in their store,

For the first time, I walked into America's Best a few weeks ago and I can tell you that I was quite impressed by what I saw on their sales floor. This place is immaculately clean and inviting and the staff is very friendly. Honestly, if you're looking for frames, I haven't seen a place that offers as wide a selection and not nearly as many brands! At the time, I came in to take advantage of their $69 special but I had a bad experience with one of their associates who told me that I didn't qualify for that special. I paid something like $45 for a "FREE" eye exam and left with only my written prescription to show for it. Needless to say, I was TICKED OFF.. so I wrote about it on every blog post that I could find.

Days later, I receive a phone call from the District Manager, Turns out that I did qualify for their special and that their was some type of confusion with their rep, and they offered to resolve the issue, Honestly, I had no intentions in doing business with them again at all but the DM seemed genuine.

As of now, I am happy with my glasses and you will be too! Be warned, though.. don't let the associate tell you that you don't qualify for their specials. They are a commission base environment and, in the end, that could cost you some big money if you don't ask the right questions.

America's best in Manassas I can say was one of the best client experiences I have had so far at an eye care store. The staff was very helpful and kind. I was a member at another eye care store for two years but was not satisfied with them. When I first came in Oscar immediately greeted and asked if he could help me with anything. It being my first time there he gave me a form to fill out. After Sergio came to help me fill out the form and asked me a few questions. He helped me from then on in absolutely everything. I had came in for an eye exam. Sergio then walked me to where all the frames were and asked me what I was looking for. I was having a little trouble deciding what frames I wanted and he broke down as far as what the top selling frames were and even had a few other employees help me decide. He escorted me to the back and had me take a seat while i waited for my eye exam. I waited no longer than 5 minutes. After Sergio finished all of my paper work and asked me if there was anything else I needed help with. Overall I can say I would definitely recommend anyone to come here! Having worked in a retail store before I always expect great service and America's Best definitely has great customer service :)

I went there because I basically have a vision discount through my employer. I live close by and the place looked clean so I thought I'd give it a try. I got my contact lense evaluation and could not afford contacts at the moment. I was out of town for a few days and left my extra pair at home. I called America's "Best" and asked them to fax me my perscription. They faxed a form over saying I needed to fill it out before they could. I really don't see the point in that because anyone could forge a name. Anyways, I tried faxing it back, but the fax machine I was using wasn't working. I called and asked them if I could just e-mail it and they said they have no e-mail address?! Then I asked if they could fax the perscription to a local Costco.
After calling back and forth ALL DAY between them and Costco I FINALLY got them to send my perscription into Costco. It took literally all day. I would never ask them for anything. I will go out of my way to go to another America's Best.

I received a call from the district manager apologizing for all the errors at the Manassas store. This made me decide to give them one more try. I recently went for an eye exam and am happy to say they were on time. This time the service was better when I picked up some contacts. I plan to purchase a new pair of glasses in January so we will see how this goes. Also, the one consistent plus about America's Best is the staff is super nice.

**UPDATE** - WORST SERVICE EVER!
So, the store manager called back to say that the corporate office will offer us a 20% discount - this is the SAME discount that they should have been offering me since we have been patients because I tell them we have vision coverage and they have copied my card. The manager said that the corporate office said I was trying to "double dip?!" EXCUSE ME - this ISSUE was about my daughter's eye sight, SERVICES and PATIENT CARE - not about DISCOUNTS!!!! So on top of the worst service ever now I have been ACCUSED of trying to get an extra discount. Give me a break, this does not excuse a serious lack of regard for a patient's well being and sight. I will let me insurance company also know about the problems I have experienced - maybe they can also do something to address this issue. BE VERY CAREFUL OF TRUSTING THIS ESTABLISHMENT - THEY HAVE QUESTIONABLE BUSINESS PRACTICES, A TOTAL DISREGARD AND LACK OF RESPECT FOR THE PATIENT THEY ARE PROVIDING SERVICE AND THEY BLAME THE CUSTOMER FOR THEIR SHORTCOMINGS!!!

So, of course I read the previous reviews as I was sitting in the lobby waiting for my eye exam.. lmao - bad yelper! I will say the following -

1 - while I didn't have any issues, there were apparently a LOT of other people that were having them. As I sat in the lobby for about 10 minutes waiting for my appointment there were some customers at the eyeglass counter and 2 at the main counter complaining/ frustrated about something...

2- I just went to get my eyes checked, purchased contacts and eye glasses elsewhere, so I didn't have a problem. The eye dr. is SUPER nice and friendly - so I was OK with it..

I have no problem returning for an eye exam ($69 - how cheap is that?!), but I'm not interested in purchasing my contacts/glasses with them.. Keep the business simple and minimal here it seems.

Horrible wait, even though I had an appointment. The doctor was nice and took his time. Overall happy with the prices and the glasses and contacts that I got. Just hate wasting my time when I have an appointment.

I had a 2:30pm appointment and I haven't seen a doctor yet and its now 4:31pm. I understand that its a Saturday afternoon, but if this location is not equipped to handle the patient flow then they need to stop over booking to make a profit. I did see a doctor at 4:43pm and he was great. I just dont have almost three hours to spend in the doctors office.

They keep all their glasses individually locked, so for each pair someone has to unlock it. We finally got to see one pair, then she walked off. I wanted to try on a few more pairs but she walked into the back without saying a word. After about five minutes, and with everyone else busy, we decided to leave and shop elsewhere.

NEVER stuck waiting. Finally a Dr. who respects my time. Dr. has given me great advice on my eye care and now prepping for Lasik. Love the idea they work with TLC for follow ups after Lasik so I can go to them instead of TLC for after care. What a bonus.....As I said.. Finally a Dr. who respects my time. Quality care to boot! Nice office as well. Great customer service all staff professional. No idol chit chat - great. Can't ask for more.

Great experience. The doctor was great, she gave me very detailed eye exam and tried to understand my lifestyle.

The lady that helped me with choosing new pair of glasses was awesome as well, she and the technicians adjusted my old pair glasses that I purchased elsewhere, they never fit before, now they fit perfectly and I am going to use them as my spare glasses at home.

My ONLY complains are their glasses selection is not HUGE and a bit pricey. But my insurance paid for most of it.

The receptionist was okay, not great. BUT, I am here for eye exam and glasses, so I couldn't care less.

Convoluted and suspect billing practices even the staff cannot explain. The final bill was more than a year later even though insurance closed out the claims in sufficient time. Then when asked for detailed information all that is provided is a lengthy line by line account via phone that still didn't add up. I was given three different total bill amounts. Everything is not submitted to insurance. Associates in Eyecare is not compelled to or concerned with explaining their billing.

I went for yearly eye exam . The front desk women was so mean. She gave me forms to feel out. I filed 1 form n gave her back n didn't know she gave me 3. I caught her nodding her head n talk behind me coz I didn't fill out all the forms.. Very mean. And the women was so mad coz I don't want my eyes to be imaged. Don't respect individuals opinion very bad .

I came here all the way from Fairfax (45 minutes to an hour drive with traffic) for a certain brand of frames that I couldn't find anywhere closer. The employees I worked with were all very helpful and nice. I told them my glasses had broken and I needed my new pair ASAP so I could drive and they told me they would try to get them in by the end of the week. I got them in the next day, about 24 hours after I paid for them. I was very impressed. I haven't had an eye exam here so I can't review that, but I would definitely come back.

I really wanted to give this place a great review, but the longer I was there the worse things seem to get. On a positive note, the place has availability and you can either book online or call in. It's also right across the street from Farragut North Metro. The staff is friendly and was initially attentive.
Even though the location is well staffed nobody seems to clean or straighten up the waiting area. Even a couple of the demo glasses' lens were dirty. The deals they have dont really seem like deals at all. The fine print does not do justice to how much extra you will pay for their glasses. I felt like I was being upsold on some service or told about an extra charge or service a moment before I was given it. This just turned me off to buying anything further. The worst part is I had to come back after an hour just to get my eyeglass rx which was my whole reason for the visit.
This place is only good if you need a valid rx for your glasses or contacts.

I was a little nervous at first about what appeared to be slow service and potential disorganization in the waiting room, but I didn't actually have to wait more than 5-10 minutes as a walk-in. And then they surprised me by doing something very nice - fixing the problem with my glasses (the nosepad had fallen off) at no charge. I'm not a regular customer, so this was just a genuinely kind gesture. Impressed with their service ethic.

I just had an eye exam at America's Best for the first time, and I'm very happy with them. For my contact lens exam (including the "suggested" vision field test) and two boxes of Accuvue 2 lenses I paid a total of $123. My last exam was with Walmart, and this price is very close. The optometrist, Dr. Wasylovski, was good, thorough and personable.

I've read complaints about the sales process and deceptive representation of their specials, but since I didn't buy glasses there I really have no comment about that. I just know that the staff was friendly, I was able to get a same-day appointment, the doctor was good, they had my lenses in stock and the price was good.
