Walmart stores the eye exams, lens frames, and contacts they sell inside their stores so that customers can access these products and their services when they need them.

Will the online store give me the option to replace the lenses for my old frames with lenses not included in the new frames? I’ve been trying to find out but the online store is not allowing me to see the lenses the old frames use.

Does Walmart Put Old Lenses into New Frames If My Lenses are Damaged?

Walmart Vision Center will not replace your old contacts with new lenses if they are damaged.

If there are any damages in a pair of glasses, it indicates that the glasses need a refurbishment or a new pair of glasses.

Will Walmart Put New Lenses In Old Frames?

Sometimes Walmart will swap out a Walmart brand prescription eyewear lens for another manufacturer’s lens, especially in the case of lower-end, off-brand lenses, as long as the prescription is for the same frame and style. If the frame has a Walmart logo or imprint on the bridge, temple or frame, however, it’s more likely that you’d receive a discount if you buy a new frame than if you buy a new lens.

How Can I Find Out if Walmart Will Put Old Lenses in New Frames?

If you need to exchange your old contact lenses, call the vision center and ask. It’s very easy to find your local vision center by searching your zip code using the Walmart website’s search tool.

And last but not least, don’t be afraid to ask a lot of questions. Many people can easily identify fake spectacles, but for those who are unsure, there are many websites, reviews and forums online, and even specialised outlets, which can help you.

There is no guarantee that the store will do an exchange, but they will most likely try to exchange it. They will definitely want to know if it is their store you are talking about, and they will probably want to know if the store is going to charge you the full amount of the repair or the restocking fee.

The charge for put your old lenses into new frames depends on the frames. Some frames are more expensive than the old ones and others are cheaper. The cheaper frames may not come with the lenses, so if that’s the case, you’ll have to buy those lenses separately. But most people opt to buy the frames for no extra charge.
