Within 20 minutes, he had my CORRECT prescription. As I sat there dumbfounded,he explained that I had previously been near-sighted, and "they" had inserted a lens for farsighted vision. The original prescription was a 2.25 correction, and after his test, it was diagnosed as requiring a 7.75 correction! Good news... after 2+ years of not being able to see whether my fingernails were clean or not, I threaded a needle without the use of an Ott light/glasses/and a magnifying lens.
NEVER take "no" for an answer, if you are not receiving the care you feel is needed.
