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?

1. How old were you when you got bifocal lenses? 2. How difficult was it to adjust to them, particularly if you got contact lenses? 3. How many different pairs or combinations of lenses did you have to try before finding something that worked? 4. Are there new options in recent years that a near-sighted person with worsening close-up vision should know about? Thanks for helping me go to my eye doctor with good questions ready.

Yes, I'm seeing a doctor in about 1 hour. But I wanted to test out the hive mind. I always wanted to do this. A few times a day, my eyes have trouble correctly aiming at things. If I'm trying to look at something they'll overshoot and I'll get a dizzy for a second. Or it might be the other way around with the dizziness coming first.... a better description inside.
