Hey, this is my 1st post and I also posted it on one of Jake’s YouTube videos but wanted to also add my rant here for anyone who doubts how many optometrists are sales reps with a doctorate, often obtaining an attitude with the education!
Here’s my rant:
8/28/2019: Hey, literally 30 minutes ago my optometrist told me not to ever come back. LOL! Here’s the story: 3-4 weeks ago I went to my optometrist to get my 2nd pair of glasses (As Jake said, get TWO, one for close-up). Well, after getting my glasses from Costco (which my optometrist didn’t appreciate because I didn’t buy them from her …. why would I? The lowest price she had in the entire store was $298. Highest price I found was over $600!! I bought mine from Costco for $140 including the blue-screen tint. But I wasn’t happy because when I first put them on my computer screen looked tilted. Yeah, my eyes got use to it after a couple weeks but in the mean time, I made another appointment with my optometrist to get the prescription changed (the astigmatism part) to be the same as my contacts. To make a very long story short, after she asked me why I wanted my prescription changed and found out I was on a quest to continue improving my vision, she asked me to take my business elsewhere. I almost laughed. In another year I probably won’t even need glasses! But the point of the story is to say from my personal experience, I believe Jake is right! Oh, to add another funny part of the story is that she went into a long dialog to explain why our vision cannot be improved by any means. It is what is what it is. No matter what you do, your eyes cannot be helped or hurt with less or more correction than needed. Really? (She’s either clueless or can lie with a straight face) She even quoted me some study to prove her point. Oh well, I expected as much since I’ve been following Jake for awhile. Take responsibility for your own eyes! Yeah, you may get booted out the door for it, but OD’s are a dime a dozen!
