Hi. For some reason you question posted twice. I answered you on the other post.


You should contact customer service to make sure you are not charged twice for the same issue.


Let me know if you have any problems and I'll contact them from my side.

There is no need for you to go see an eye doctor from what you have told me. I believe everything will be fine. Of course, if it starts to hurt or if you vision starts to be affected (which I don't think will happen) you should see an ophthalmologist ASAP. Let me know if I can do anything else to help.
