opticians and progressive lenses
[QUOTE=tommcgee;844157]I guess I lucked out with optometrists, I've got a good one and she can dial the progressives right in.[/QUOTE]
i either have a really tricky optical system with a very esoteric set of faults, or i have just totally bombed with eye doctors. i just can NOT get a good result with progressives.
[QUOTE=tommcgee;844157]And to racer's point, I use an old world optical shop that looks straight out of 1955. The old German guy there, who rides, is a huge help at picking out the right hardware. He "gets" it. [/QUOTE]
three optometrists ago, i went to just such a shop here in media PA. a really old guy who i hoped would prove adequate, but such was not to be the case. it was the 2nd-worst pair i have had. the next guy, in glen mills, was a kind of optometrist-to-rich-folks and so i thought he must be good. but from him i got the worst pair i have had yet.
if any optometrist is reading this, and if you guys have a professional network, can you recommend somebody in the philadelphia PA or wilmington DE areas? alternatively, my real home is richmond VA and i get back there several times a year. will actually be moving back in less than two years, so anybody in central VA would work as well.
sorry to take this helmet discussion off-topic. mods, please let me know if i should cool it.
