Only reason 4stars is because the help after for glasses was Terrible. I had to beg for help but still the girl acted like we were intruding on her sitting at her desk. Not helpful at all. I wish I knew her name. Ugh. We ended up getting nothing and will come back another time and see if someone will take the time to explain how the glasses process goes and help my daughter get s pair of glasses 👓
