I recently went for an eye exam. Thought it was time to try out those snazzy progressive lens glasses– you know, the ones that aren’t “bi-focal”, just look like a plain lens? HAH. My previous doctor said I could have been in bifocals 10 years ago but I kept using my regular single lens glasses because they were less expensive. (I am nearsighted). As time went on, I started to take my glasses off to read, sew, or use my tablet. Moving right along– I told the new doctor I wanted to try the progressives. I picked out some new frames & they said I had 2 weeks to try the glasses– no problem. If I was unhappy, I could just bring them back. I did this. They were HORRIBLE. I tried them for 2 days and gave up. Then I read up on them & found they could take weeks and even MONTHS to get used to them. So before my deadline was up, back they went. I said “please exchange them for single vision like I had before.” I expected to be reimbursed the difference. NOT. I got charged the princely free of $347. I really got soaked on this.
