Being a stay-at-home parent of a five month old, going to the optometrist for an eye exam is a bit of an inconvenience. My vision has not changed in ten years. Are there any online sources that don't require you to have a current prescription? Bonus points if prices are comparable to Vision Direct, 1-800-contacts, etc.
I can't tell if this doctor is just a jerk, or if they committed a legitimate violation. [more inside]

Does anyone have experience with vision therapy? I have difficulty focusing both eyes at the same time, and I have been told by optometrists that I basically just have to live with this.

What's up with monocles? Were they an affectation, or did people used to have vision problems in just one eye? Were you supposed to close one eye if you wanted better vision? I would expect having one eye with corrected vision and one without to give you a headache.
Do reading glasses make you become more farsighted? [more inside]
Should I get glasses? My eyes have been bothering me as of late -- light sensitivity, eyelid flutters -- so I went to an optometrist and got checked out. I am very slightly nearsighted, with a slight astigmatism -- should I drop the cash for glasses? [more inside]
During a recent trip to the optometrist, I was told my nearsighted eyes had improved, and was given a new prescription, only to find the new specs left me blurry. [more inside]
