From the beginning I stated my displeasure with progressive lenses. I decided to give it another try - based on the explanation that they have improved over the years and the lenses I was getting were digital. When I picked them up, while I could see when I read the booklet she gave me - I told her right away that I was not going to be able to see the computer screen. The girl that helped me said, "Yes you will. You have to give your brain a chance to find the "sweet spot" but it will happen." I started wearing them continuously as recommended. I stopped wearing them while driving because, with the glasses on, I can't read road signs until I'm right on top of them. I didn't have trouble with distance -- with the glasses I do. I'll give it the two weeks that you ask but, so far this week, I've had a splitting headache by the time I go to lunch. The "sweet spot" with these glasses -- in order to see the computer screen -- is to turn my head and look out of the corner of my eye. I will keep trying but I'm not encouraged so far.
Helen, I'm so sorry that you're adaptation to the new lenses/ prescription is not going smoothly! I appreciate your commitment to wearing the glasses full time for two weeks as the optician that helped you advised. I would recommend coming back and discussing your progress at the end of the two weeks. Please stop in or give us a call at that time so we can assure your satisfaction with the product!
