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?

I want to order prescription sunglasses online. Looking at Zenni Optical right now. The frames I like seem to have a minimum PD of 64. Mine is 62. How much difference does a couple digits make? Can I order 64s and have them be usable for driving? Or do I need to pick different frames? [more inside]
Attention glasses/contacts wearers! Do you have a major difference in the prescription between one eye and the other, aka anisometropia? Have you found any benefit from iseikonic lenses? [more inside]

Has anyone transitioned from rigid gas permeable contact lenses to glasses? Did your prescription stay stable? Why do glasses make me feel cross eyed and fuzzy headed compared to RGPs--do I just have to wait it out and get used to them, or was the prescription wrong? Can I wear RGPs part of the time and glasses part of the time? [NB: I've never gotten good answers on these questions from my eye doc.]
LASIK - I'd love to ditch both my glasses and contacts. Have any of you had the procedure performed? In particular, I'm wondering if you have experienced any adverse or unexpected effects, and how much it cost.
