Had my routine check up with Specsavers in January. Was told that my eyes had changed, but not enough to change the prescription. Off I went not totally convinced.
Since then, I've had headaches and have had to take my glasses off to give my eyes a rest more and more.
Got a second opinion at Boots. Not only has my longsight changed, but my shortsight has improved slightly. This means my current prescription is far too strong for me and should have been addressed in January!
I was given two choices: 2 pairs - one for distance and one for reading/working or varifocals. I chose seperate ones because its very clearcut when I need to use them, but if I find I'm changing them too much, I'll get varifocals next time. Fortunately these were on a 2 for one deal, so I got some sunglasses at half price too.
