why the fuck is thos not standard practrice

you mean i don't have to be able to have them flip between 1 and 2 a billion times trying to decide which is better and it's not the standard
#96 - anon (10/02/2016) [-]
well they still need to keep changing lenses, but also have to shine light in your eyes, why would you prefer that
#85 - anon (10/02/2016) [-]
As far as I know it is the standard.
All babies have these basic checks to make sure they function properly.
But then, if someone is an attentive parent, they know when something's not quite right anyway.

Just diagnosed with mixed astigmatism, getting glasses.

"A common concern for some of my patients is if they don’t tell me the correct choice of lens, then their prescription for that year will be off and not work properly. This is not true. When an optometrist is switching between lenses (which we in “the business” call a refraction), we are fine-tuning a prescription using the patient’s input to find the lenses that are the most clear and comfortable.

Optometrists are trained to filter out incorrect answers from our patients as we double and sometimes triple check on your responses to make sure we have the right powers. Many optometrists do this by bracketing the lens choices presented to patients. Bracketing means we pick two lenses with a noticeable difference in powers and move towards the most clear of the two. By doing so, the lenses in 1 and 2 may end up being the same lens or lenses in choices 7 and 8, etc."

i have to say last time i went to get my glasses the chick checking the lenses was a total bitch. she got mad with me when i couldn't tell the difference between the lenses she was showing me telling me stuff like "we need to hurry, as i have other people to take care of, you know" 10 minutes after i arrived at my scheduled appointment im not trying to use the race card, but it is highly likely that she acted the way she did because of me being a foreigner and having a heavy accent and finally gave me lenses that were weaker than the ones i already had. I thought they were right until i got them. they were slightly worse than the previous ones, but i assumed it was just because i was still getting used to them. i was wrong, it has been hell to wear these shitglasses that force me to sit in the front of the class and stare at the screens with squinted eyes. im poor so buying new ones isn't an option and the return period has long since gone.

fuck, then complain. where did you go? one of them big chains? if yes complain to the leaders. checking your eye sight is not something you can rush. you had your hour, and if you think its because of your a foreigner, then you have a gold mine...
#92 - micekill (10/02/2016) [-]
it was a company named specsavers. bought there since they had a sale on glasses. another reason i didn't complain was because i had broken my previous pair, and had already went to school without glasses for 3 weeks, i needed them, specially since we were getting close to the final exams and i just couldn't wasste any more days being "blind". i just assumed that the difference was not that big of a deal compared to failing my two year course which, if failed would put me in a really bad spot, since i am an immigrant i have a limited studying permit, if i am more than one year behind i do not get my study permit and will have to leave . my assumption was wrong i guess

that sucks big time
but again, talk with the leaders of specsavers. go to their homepage and write a email where you say what you wrote here. you might get a new time and maybe a new pair. since its their job to make sure you get proper glasses.
put it like this, i am an electrician. if i fuck up a job, then my firm will have to pay fix it again. often if it comes forth that they fucked up your prescription then they have to do it again, since you have to trust them to do their job right.
#94 - micekill (10/02/2016) [-]
i will do that next time, since it has been quite a long time since i did this, i don't even have a receipt a bit more than 3 years i simply let too much time pass and did jack shit. i doubt anything will be done even if i had a receipt of it with me.
guess this is what happens when you procrastinate your entire life on funnyjunk.
#64 - anon (10/02/2016) [-]
Damn. You should go to that office and complain. Just directly tell them that the person who did your glass work was rude and gave you a worse prescription.

Bro, you know if that is the case you could actually go to another doctor to get your money back for those glasses, though?
It's malpraxis, legally speaking, because she didn't do her fucking job. Go to a doctor to get your eye prescription, maybe even a third one if you can, then get the prescription of the bitchy doctor (if you still have it) and compare them. If hers is completely different, you can legally get your money back from the first bitch to pay for all three prescriptions.
The malpraxis law is strict all over Europe. I hope it was not too late, but if it happens again remember this.
Also, it is completely legal to do what I did here when I had a sprained wrist. Previous doctors said it's a) A bone fissure, b) A muscular torn , c) Nerve damage , and the third physician said it's none of them and just a sprain. But I didn't get treatment for the first three, I learned about the malpraxis law after.

i'll do that next time, there has gone too much time and i don't have the prescription at all

Try zenni it's a Chinese glasses manufacture where you can get your prescription really cheap. Got a perfect pair of glasses for 20 plus shipping

Yeah, it took me 2 years to find a doctor who figured out my fucking simple problem; mixed astigmatism, albeit pretty bad.

Basically seeing halos, starbursts, double vision, ghost images, extended after images, etc. first 2 clinics said my eyes are fine just because I still saw fairly clearly, they didn't actually look at my cornea. Really focused on the retina for some reason, had me get some useless special tests telling me I'm fine and that I'm crazy in need of a psychiatrist. Go see one for the hell of it, tells me I have anxiety problems and other then that need to see an eye doctor. After going back and forth, glasses fixed my fucking problem. Incompetency is everywhere.

At least all the idiots make me feel like I'll fit in when I eventually get a job

he lined them in the first pic. looks like he did it not long ago.
It could easily be the same pair of eyebrows since that liner shit doesn't last long and the jump-crash-medical attention- thing could let them wore off more quickly.
