Optometrists – A Good One?

By cranky 1 August 2009 19

Growing old has brought gradual decrepitude to the sight department, for Mrs Cranky more than moi. Both of us have specs, but mine have remained fairly well unused for the last 10 years.

Not so for the child bride. Hers appear to be a magnifying type, rather than a correcting type lens. I cannot remember being asked any questions regarding how well I could see an object whilst being tested, rather the Optometrist seemed to look into the eye and come up with a correcting value.

The bride reports being asked, as various slides were introduced, “is that better, is that better?”

Her current specs are causing confusion when changing focus from say, a page in front of her to a cross table focus.

Are there diferent methods of establishing the problem, and the prescription supplied?

And who is recommended for a FAQ job?
