I think somehow my optometrist has underestimated how strong my glasses need to be. (My vision is still blurry after giving myself a month to adjust to the new prescription. When I put on my friend's glasses, who has a stronger prescription than mine, it gets dramatically clearer.) Is this a "ask them to fix it for free" situation or a "suck it up and pay out of pocket for a new prescription" situation? And is there anything I can do to avoid getting mis-measured again in the future?
I am in my late 30s and have always been nearsighted/myopic. My prescription is -7.25 with (I am told a lot of) astigmatism. My vision is starting to change...I can see bifocals on the distant horizon. [more inside]
I'm getting my first pair of progressive glasses. I decided to go with Warby Parker rather than getting lenses from my local eye doctor because my doctor charged twice as much as Warby and I could not afford it. This is despite warnings from my doctor that progressive lenses must be measured in person. How will I know if the Warby Parker lenses aren't good enough? [more inside]
My last few glasses prescriptions have come up with 0.25 dioptres of astigmatism in them in various directions (i.e. not consistent between eye tests). I've only had my eyes examined because I've needed to buy new glasses, not because of any difficulty seeing, but I've not enjoyed the effects of getting used to new astigmatism correction on new lenses, and can't help but feel it's spurious precision in the testing.

I don't really trust that I'm getting a good eye exam from my optometrist (chain store) and felt the same about the previous two (local practice and another chain store.) Given that I'm not a doctor myself, how do I find/get a better eye exam or gain a reasonable confidence I'm getting a good exam in my current situation?
How do automatic optometric machines work? Why don't U.S. optometrists use them (or why do they do a manual followup?) [more inside]
Does this eye glasses prescription look right? Significant difference between my old prescription, which I'm still using and work fine, and my new prescription - including a switch from - to + on some numbers. Specifics are inside. [more inside]
I walked away from my last visit to the optometrist with a prescription for bifocals. All for the low low price of $20. The bruises on my ego were free. [more inside]
My annual eye exam is coming up. I've had a years-long string of not-quite-right corrective lenses. What can I do to get an accurate prescription this time? [more inside]

Can I go back to an optician and get a prescription for a different kind of lenses without another exam?
Yet another optician question. I got a prescription for reading/computer glasses, but I really need progressives (I think) because I can't see anything closeup without the glasses on. But I don't trust my optician. [more inside]
I have an existing pair of glasses frames I'd like to get fitted with prescription lenses. I've done entirely too much research, and I still have questions! [more inside]
Does Illinois have a law requiring vision professionals (optometrists in particular) to release spectacles (glasses) prescriptions to the patient? Contact lens prescriptions? [more inside]
What are those things called that optometrists use to determine your prescription, and how do they work? (The ones where they say, "Which looks better, this... or this?")
