I went to the eye doctor last weekend because it’s getting so difficult to see things up close, I was sure that it was time for bifocals. I should have checked this website, because I see that I’ve gone before for the same thing, and it’s that my eyes are getting better. My glasses are too strong for my self-healing eyes, so they over-correct for things up close.
It’s interesting comparing the numbers on that screen above to my final prescription. Apparently the machines they run you through during the pre-doctor rigmarole do a quick diagnosis, and it’s fairly actuate. My left eye is -4.00 both times and my right is -3.00 pre-test; -3.25 post-cute-doctor.
I was by myself for the appointment, so I didn’t look at glasses afterward. Listen up, Lenscrafters, ’cause Lloyd’s got an idea: You need to install some iPads in your store. Prospective buyers can stand on one side and have their picture taken with various new frames, then stand on the other side and review those photos while wearing their own glasses so they can see what they look like. That’s a money maker right there, and he’ll settle for 40%.
