Totally understand your frustrations' mainly concerning your eye apt. I think many business are using covid to do less customer service across the board. So frustrating.She is 40 years old!! Not a kiddo. That makes it even scarier LOL. The other day I was getting attitude left and right from her. I don't know where it was coming from...I am trying to teach her. Finally I says "You can knock it off with the attitude, I am NOT the one." She instantly turned on her heel and went upstairs to complain to my boss that I was being mean to her. I wasn't being mean, I am blunt. Sorry if you don't like my voice.
Anyway, my real gripe for today LOL....
I go to get my eye exam. I told them that I needed both glasses and contacts. I have never worn contacts before, but with the masks and the glasses etc, my ears are being rubbed raw, not to mention the very irritating fog issue.
The doctor rushes through my exam, then stops and types a bunch of stuff on the computer. He is getting more and more I dunno....excitable. Then blurts out "wait! this can't be right! Did anybody ever talk to you about double vision?" I'm like nooooo. Then he does another eye exam and keeps going back and forth to the computer. I'm sitting there cover one eye, cover the other eye...I'm starting to panic LOL. Is this something that I never noticed??
"So lets talk about that double vision thing" He's like "I never said you had double vision" LOL. What the heck, you just had me in a panic.
He tells me to go to the other room and "wash up for contact lens training" because I have never worn them before. Girl comes in and places two contact packages in front of me R and L (backwards because she placed them while standing facing me. Then she says, "good, you have your phone"...hands me a little piece of paper with a qr code to follow the link to accu vue to teach me how to put in contacts virtually, and she leaves. After about 15 minutes of following this website, glasses on to read, glasses off to try to position my hand to put the stupid contact in: I finally dropped the stupid thing. I paced around waiting for the girl to come back and lost it LOL. She says that's the way they do it because of covid. OK I get it sort of...if you are so afraid of covid, then put on an n95 and help me put in my contacts for the first time in my life.
They didn't even have wifi, and I couldn't get service to scan the flippin qr code. Finally I hooked up with Burgerfi next door. In the end, I did not get contacts lol. Only because I cannot do it that way.
Anyway, she tells me to pick out glasses. So I'm out there trying on glasses. I probably tried on about 8 pairs before somebody freaked out that I needed to put "dirty" glasses in the bucket.
I finally picked my two pairs of glasses. FINALLY got to pick them up this Friday. I went to pick them up and she asked me if I wanted help to adjust them. I'm like "what, you don't have a qr code for that?"
...saturday one of the lens popped out and I cannot find it.
LOL I woke up and put my glasses on and it made me so nauseous. Seriously want to throw up nauseous. I even took an anti nausea pill. I'm like "OH MY GOD I DO HAVE DOUBLE VISION!" LOL. Put the glasses on, again wanted to throw up. The lens was missing and I didn't even realize it. THE NEXT DAY!
My friend is an eye-guy at another place. I guess a tech. He said that the qr code thing is totally stupid and they do actual person to person teaching you how to put in your contacts. So I guess I have a new eye doctor....
