Although I’m off work all this week and supposed to be relaxing, it’s been a bit of an infuriating day really. After spending faaaar to much time playing certain games (see post below) I went to see my opticians.
Long story short. I was ordering contact lenses online (because it’s cheap that way) but they refuse to send any if you’ve not had a checkup in the last year. My old opticians wanted to charge a lot more than I expected for that so I went to Specsavers. Nice folks and over the last couple of months I’ve had several sets of lenses to try as they adjusted the prescription for maximum comfort/vision. Finally they got it right and three months worth of lenses ordered and paid for. End of story.
Well unfortunately not. I put in the lenses and the vision in my right eye is awful. I pop to see them and they suggest trying anther lens in the pack in case it was a dud. No different so I pop back. They’ve ordered me a replacement (with the same prescription) just in case both lenses so far were wonky.
Shock horror it still didn’t help.
So I go back today and sit for the sight test.
“Can you read the second from bottom line”
“Well your prescription has changed an awful lot”
When I ask exactly how my eyesight has so dramatically altered in about three weeks and how I can still get great vision by mixing and matching some of the previous lenses they gave me, he seems at a loss. Bottom line – I have to go back with a wiped clean slate and start the whole process from the beginning as they can’t figure out the mess they made. Urgh!
