How did you get on Bayleaf?

On my varifocals it seems they supplied a varifocal plano lens in the right eye and not a single vision plano so it was distorting the image at the reading area towards the bottom of the lens. Should have them back by middle of next week.

Fingers crossed, Bayleaf !

I'm just back from the UK where I called in on Specsavers who told me that my glasses are Pentax optical glass which pleased me enormously (I'm a Pentax camera user) !

Absolutely fabulous darling....so if you changed to Nikon lenses presumably a Nikon camera would follow ;)

New glasses on and being road-tested! :lol: I seemed to get slightly more thorough attention from the shop assistant this time - I even got the special card giving the details for each eye, and a posh bag for putting everything in! :ymsmug:

They're heaps better than the varifocals - there's still a small area of distortion on the far right side, but that's normal apparently. At least I don't feel I have to move my head to read.

I'll be breaking them in slowly, and hope that it might reduce eye-strain migraines. :YMPRAY:

The right lens is the plane one, and as I only read out of my left eye, the right one shouldn't be doing anything too strenuous. (-|

Good luck getting yours sorted, Teapot! %%-

Sounds as if things are improving, Bayleaf - hope the new ones make a difference.

Ditto, varifocals back after plano lens replacement. Definite improvement but I will have to get used to them a bit more (again) back with my single focus to type this although I could just manage to do that with the vari's
I noticed when driving that the vision is good for distance and if I move my head, rather than my eyes the speedo isn't fully in focus so need to act normally just moving the eyes to get a sharp speedo image.

Tried the computer and its tricky to get it all in focus, the difference seems to be the height which I am sitting at, in the car I seem to be looking downward through the lens but at the PC the monitor is at a higher level than the speedo would be and it's quite tricky to get it in focus and keep it that way. I wondered if that was a similar issue for you Bayleaf?

I don't need specs for driving, so that's not an issue. The new glasses are good, but looking at a bigger monitor, I still have to turn my head slightly to get the right hand side in focus. For books and smaller screens it's fine. The assistant did say I need to make sure the glasses are in the correct position on my nose (I got used to having the old pharmacy-bought ones low to look over them).

Trial and error I guess. I'm kind of, of the school of thought that the more I wear glasses, to quicker my eyes will deteriorate, so I use them for the minimum possible.

Sometimes life looks a better with fuzzy edges! :lol:

Well wearing my glasses less may according to your hunch make my eyes last longer but it definitely wouldn't make my car last :o :shock: :o :-s
