Dr. Steve Wexler is not employed by Walmart but maintains his own independent eye and vision care practice within the confines of a Walmart Vision Center. He is strictly a service-based optometrist. Dr. Wexler prescribes contact lenses and glasses on a daily basis treats complicated eye and vision conditions.

After a thorough examination, the patient receives a copy of his or her eyeglass or contact lens prescription. It is the patient's choice where he or she purchases the products.

And through Walmart, the glasses and contacts lenses are of excellent value. This relationship always benefits the patients. The Waukegan Walmart has a huge selection of eyeglasses starting at budget friendly $9.00 frames. The glasses are backed by a great warranty. Walmart Vision Center provides a wide line of name brand styles including sunglasses and safety frames.

His treatment and services range from prescribing a wide variety of contact lens types to assessing children, young adults and those adults who are now having reading difficulties as near as well as those who have developed age-related eye health conditions.
