You know one of the things I say literally most often (about optometrist measurements)?
GET A SECOND OPINION.
Along with, don’t bring your glasses along. Play dumb. Don’t talk about vision improvement. Just, dog ate my glasses, nothing else, sit in the chair, get measurements.
And if the results are , rinse, repeat, with another one.
Because sooner or later, this always happens:
- First optometrist had her prescription, said myopia wasn’t reducing, she had told him about endmyopia and he was really unkind about all of it. Also diagnosed a medical condition that seemed a bit far fetched - and indeed turned out to be nothing.
