In the interest of not wasting your time, I will try to write the Case of the Cursed Glasses in short sentences.
November 25, 2019, eyes examined at Free Clinic
My prescription changed drastically in 2 years.
I ordered these glasses, with promise of week to 10 days delivery
12 days, no glasses, I call office, she says, they sent them to our Palmetto office, you can drive there are pick them up here in 2 days.
I chose 2 days, day 16 she calls and says, they put the wrong prescription in one side.
we are sending them back, will be another 10 days.
Jan 15th, I pick up the glasses.
I can see really well, but can't see the computer screen, I use 10 year old progressive lens to see computer, and suffer trying to read though the bifocals with lines.
Also the are not antiglare, so the lights of cars driving behind me glare.
I suffered through with HOPE for new progressive lens in the future.
I go to the optical shop where I purchased my expensive glasses, and order Progressive Lens, in my titanium lightweight frames, and will not publish the price I paid just in case Hubby reads this post.
I will not tell him unless he ask me, so far he has not. THINK YOWSA expensive.
She says Week to Ten Days.
I sigh with joy, thinking in 10 days I can stop making ten trips a day going back to take off computer glasses and put on SEEING glasses, because I keep standing up and walking off with computer glasses and don't realize it until I can't see the TV or what I am cooking on the stove or read my kindle.
Keep in mind this is not the same optical shop.
I should have known the glasses were cursed, because I came out of the shop and went to open the car door and there was a BLOODY Palm Print on the handle to my car.
I kid you not!
My what iffer started its scenarios of Aids, Hepatitis C, Jack the Ripper came and missed me...
and led off down another track trying to decide Just How It Got there.
Finally on Jan 23, 2 MONTHS since I ordered my new glasses, the free pair, they email I can come get the NEW, better, expensive glasses.
I race to the shop!
Excited to the Max.
She sits the new glasses on my face and I can't see a thing.
I say these are not right.
She says, it takes a while to get used to them.
I hold up my hand in STOP position.
These are not right. The ones I have on I see perfectly, it is the same prescription, these were free those were NOT...
She says while tapping the prescription, why would you put an old prescription in new lens.
(she is not the person I ordered them from)
I wanted to scream. I try not to raise my voice, and say it IS A NEW PRESCRIPTION.
Then I notice something else, my lens were round on the side, not square.
She has the nerve to say, that doesn't matter. I said oh YES IT DOES!
She says let me have the glasses you have on.
She goes in the back with both pair and comes back and says they sent the wrong glasses.
These are not your prescription.
What are the odds that two different optical shops, two different lens factories, would both make a mistake on two separate pairs of glasses and put the wrong prescription in.
At least the free glasses, she checked them before she called me, and found they were wrong.
the ones I PRE paid hundreds of dollars for, they did NOT check before I went over there.
I AM WAITING ANOTHER TEN DAYS. plus still walking off with the wrong glasses on my face.
I actually last week, got in the car and realized I could not SEE because I had the wrong glasses on.
Someone Help Me Please...
I might tell the INSURANCE STORY of Bob's Derm Doc visit, if I ever get it straight enough to tell
