? I had an appt. two weeks before my vacation so I can get contacts and not wear my glasses at the beach.
I had the test done, a few days later I went in to get the contacts fit. Tried them on, and I swear they were the wrong prescription. It was like wearing magnifying glasses! He insisted on me keeping them on and going home wearing them. I did but I could barely drive home. It felt like I was going to crash every car around me!
I wore them for 3-4 hours after that. Everything around me looked huge. I had a terrible headache so I removed them, put my glasses on and I had to sit waiting for my eyes to adjust to my glasses.
I talked to Dr. Cohen the next day but he insisted on me wearing them for another day. I asked if they were bifocals, but he said they weren't. I explained that it's like wearing magnifying glasses but he insisted that my eyes need to adjust to them. Whatever. I never wore them again. I'm not going to ruin my eyesight wearing someone else's prescription. Because I really think that's what they were, the wrong prescription! He did have two pair of contacts on his desk when I went in to get the contact fitting and he was figuring out which ones were mine (WTF!)
? At the time of my contact fitting I had my prescription glasses for only one year and they had the perfect prescription. So I called once again and talked to the receptionist to please leave a note for Dr. Cohen about matching the prescription on my glasses. But he never called me back. This was two months ago.
? This is the son of Dr. Cohen (both named the same) he is a really cool guy, don't get me wrong, but he's an awful Optometrist!
? I ended up wearing my glasses to the beach!
