.

?? I had an appt. two weeks before my vacation so I can get contacts and not wear my glasses at the beach.
I had the test done, a few days later I went in to get the contacts fit. Tried them on, and I swear they were the wrong prescription. It was like wearing magnifying glasses! He insisted on me keeping them on and going home wearing them. I did but I could barely drive home. It felt like I was going to crash every car around me!
I wore them for 3-4 hours after that. Everything around me looked huge. I had a terrible headache so I removed them, put my glasses on and I had to sit waiting for my eyes to adjust to my glasses.
I talked to Dr. Cohen the next day but he insisted on me wearing them for another day. I asked if they were bifocals, but he said they weren't. I explained that it's like wearing magnifying glasses but he insisted that my eyes need to adjust to them. Whatever. I never wore them again. I'm not going to ruin my eyesight wearing someone else's prescription. Because I really think that's what they were, the wrong prescription! He did have two pair of contacts on his desk when I went in to get the contact fitting and he was figuring out which ones were mine (WTF!)

?? At the time of my contact fitting I had my prescription glasses for only one year and they had the perfect prescription. So I called once again and talked to the receptionist to please leave a note for Dr. Cohen about matching the prescription on my glasses. But he never called me back. This was two months ago.

?? This is the son of Dr. Cohen (both named the same) he is a really cool guy, don't get me wrong, but he's an awful Optometrist!

?? I ended up wearing my glasses to the beach!
