Judy, if you paid for the glasses with a credit card, it may be possible to have the credit card company reverse the charges. Especially with all the evidence you have that the glasses were defective from the get-go. B

Ordered both bifocals for computer/reading and bifocal sunglasses for distance/reading. Computer glasses were perfect. Sunglasses were clear at the right distances but I couldn't get both eyes to focus at the same time, and they induced nausea. Optician kept trying to convince me that I would get used to them, and his main objective was insisting they were ground properly and that they had done nothing wrong. I went back to the ophthalmologist (Hopkins, Wilmer Eye Institute) that had examined my eyes, and his assessment/measurement was that the blanks the lab had chosen to make the lenses were radically different, by two full diopters, and that was the source of the problem. The optometrist where the glasses were ordered had never heard of such a thing and has been treating me like I'm nuts. (Obviously, I will not be a repeat customer.)
