The reason for getting new glasses was mostly that the old ones had darkened with age*. I was also hoping to be able to read books a bit nearer to my face again!
My experience so far has not been very good. I've been offered lenses that:
- were so bad for distance that I couldn't use them for driving
- were no better or worse than my old ones
- that worked if I crooked my neck right down all the time
- that work at all distances, but only if I lift them up on my nose for reading. They then get smeary from my eyelashes
My dilemma is: do I go back to lenses no. 2, which aren't a very good prescription but will work, or do I get my money back, go somewhere else, and have to start all over again? I feel like I'm being fussy but I'm sure I've had better glasses than this. Help!
*Photochromic lenses do that. No one warned me.
