Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Let me take a moment to read your post in detail.
Well, first of all the slight variation in the prescriptions you listed are within the margin of error, or you could better say the margin of variation, notable between different exams.
even on the cylinder huh?
yes, even on the cylinder and the axis of the cylinder.
in the scrip from costco the doc did check the polycarbonate box, I have high index, could that have something to do with it?
Also, with your Rx a slight offset in your pupil position, say a millimeter or two, wouldn't be expected to cause all the problems you are having. When you say that the problem glasses are not your first set of progressive bifocals can you tell me how your previous progressive lenses worked for you? Were you happy with them?
The old glasses are the exact same frame and lens material as the new glasses. When I got the old ones, I put them on, noticed the differences and they were fine pretty much right away.
I do also have a new set that is a different frame
shorter in height but both do the same thing
That is possible, but not likely. The high index plastic just means that the physical thickness of the lens for any given strength of glasses would be less. It might, just might, somehow change the parameters of the progressive lens, but I wouldn't think so.
Now, that is something that could lead to your problems. The placement of progressive lenses in your frame and on your face is CRITICAL. Slight variations can cause all sorts of problems.
Yeah I've tried different things. So frustrating.. Well maybe they keep making them wrong
Time to take advantage of the Costco return policy I guess.
That is possible. I agree with your plan -- take
'em back. And you might want to go to an ophthalmologist who has her own optical shop for your next pair. You will, most likely, get better service and expertise there.
Does this make sense to you?
Yeah it makes sense, I was hoping for the "Oh yeah, that prescription is totally wrong" answer
I can understand your frustration, especially when you are spending so money on glasses :(
Anyway, you gave me a good answer, I'll accept
Yeah the first were 500 bucks and not right
Sorry.....only give out the truth here lol!
Yeah, damn that truth!! Thanks Dr. Rick
