I recently got a new Varilux glasses prescription filled at an optical shop recommend by a friend. The glass maker orders the lenses and then grinds/makes them himself. I've worn progressives before, but I'm having difficulty getting used to the new glasses. They also have a scratch and seem to be getting more in less than a week (the glasses also have Crizal coating). My optometrist and ophthalmologist checked the glasses and seemed to think there was something wrong with them, especially one lens. I brought the glasses back to the glass maker/fitter and told him what they said. He immediately become [B][I]extremely[/I][/B] defensive and angry. Basically he stated my optometrist was filling my head with nonsense and was telling me this in order for me to use [I]their[/I] optical shop. He said he's been in the business for 45 years and has rarely made anything incorrect. When I told him I was having a hard time seeing with these glasses he said, "That's because you're blind!" He said he would make a new pair of glasses for me and stated, "Then we'll see who's right and who's wrong!"\n\nI am honestly NOT making this up. I have never been treated like this before, especially from someone that is supposed to have your best health interest in mind. Now I question whether or not the lenses are even Varilux or have a Crizal coating. I will keep the new glasses he makes, but also go back to my optometrist to have another pair of glasses made. Thoughts? Thanks.
