Some people have the misconception that the eye doctor working in the Walmart Vision Center started by unpacking boxes in the back of the store, may have been promoted to cashier, and then took the job as eye doctor in the Walmart Vision Center. This is not true. The eye doctors that work in the Walmart Vision Center are trained doctors of optometry. Your eye doctor inside of a Walmart Vision Center went to the same colleges of optometry, took the same classes, past the same state and national boards as private practice doctors.
