I feel like today is going to be a bad day.
Yesterday I went to get my new glasses. I haven't gotten new glasses in about 5 years. I wear contacts, and I really only wear glasses at night before bed. But I wanted to get some with an updated prescription and that looked good enough that I could wear to work if I ever couldn't wear my contacts for some reason. Now, I am very near-sighted -10.5 in one eye, and -9.5 in the other. So I knew my glasses would be thick, but I paid extra for "thinning" and this is what I picked up yesterday:
Are you kidding me??!? Those glasses are bulging out the back, side and front of the frame! I was really disappointed. And they make you sit there and try it on... 'oh how are they?' ... 'um, am I supposed to be able to have my peripheral vision completely blocked by the edge of these lenses?' ... 'oh, that's normal.' Um - no it isn't!! And I asked them if I had any options and he just looked at me awkwardly.
So I get home and I compared them to my other glasses, which maybe were a tiny bit less strong of a prescription but not much, and they are seriously 1/3 of the thickness.
I'm just so mad. They make you pay in advance, and then you're stuck with whatever crap they give you?? It is so unfair. I'm going to go back this weekend and show them my old glasses, and show them what "thinning" is supposed to look like, but it probably won't do any good. Apparently there is no customer satisfaction at Clear Sight Optical.
I paid over $350 for something I just want to throw away. I keep thinking about it and getting madder and madder. I feel like they are stealing money right out of my pocket and there's nothing I can do about it.
Plus my eyes look freakishly small and beady. Not happy. Not happy at all.
