In brief: You get what you pay
Consider the employment decisions made by a graduate of an optometry trade school.
Should i set up my own office? Work with another optometrist? Oh gosh, no one will have me so i guess i will work for wal mart. So you get the inadequate exam that an optom gives anyway, from the least consequential of them. You could see an ophthalmologist - right?

In brief: What do you expect
Wal-mart is a great place to buy products that are made in factories.
It is not a great place to get healthcare, including eye care.
