Except a private practice wouldn't be able to bring in this many patients. At Lenscrafters the prices were very low, i ended up paying $45 with my AAA discount, even tho i was originally told it would be $95, so im not sure what happened with that haha. But ya before I got on these threads, I didn't even realize there were private practices, and I don't think the average person is going to go to some small in the woods doctor when there's a big shiny box right next door to them offering exams at half the price. I'm not saying this is a good thing, but that's the reality.
