  locations? california only?

Good deal for the price. My eye exam at the regular eye doctor was $110 alone without gasses.

 

Commercials on TV all the time for this deal.  It's nationwide and not just CA.

They are actually pretty decent.  A few years back I went to the local eyecare place and got an exam, and after it was done the woman says something to the effect "I'll bet they weren't as thorough at America's Best"
I had to tell her that honestly America's best was just as thorough as they were.  When I seen the bill I about did a #2 in my pants, but they probably charge that to milk insurance companies.   The best part was the AB eye doctor.  "Your vision is good up close, you just take off the glasses when you need to do things up close."   

They're in it for the upsell, which is expected, but I still don't think I'd go back.

When my wife complained of blurry vision in one eye with the America's Best glasses, the sales droids and the store manager tried to convince her that she needed to "adjust" to the new prescription.  It took some insisting to get past them and back to the optometrist in the back of the store.  After the America's Best-affiliated optometrist confirmed her initial prescription, we went to an ophthalmologist who determined that the prescription was wrong by 30 degrees of cylinder.

I guess anybody can make a mistake, but it still galls me that the sales staff tried to convince my wife literally not to believe her own lying eyes.

  what nationwide? free eye exam or americabest?

Actually its both from what I could see. Even found some places on the east coast.

Americas Best has advertised on Detroit TV for years. They also have locations in FL and elsewhere. 2 pairs for $70 including exam is nothing new.

That said, they did have a special earlier this year where the $60 frames were included in the 2/$70 price (normally it's only the $50 frames).

Last year even their eye exam (without glasses) was $5 less than many optometrists I called. But once you're paying ($45?) for the exam, you might as well get 2 pairs of super-basic glasses for another $25.
