He did not change the letters to be read on the eye chart as they got smaller to check for bi-focals. As a result, I memorized the chart. I asked him to prescribe the strength that I have on my overthe counter readers, but he said that was over-correction. As a result, I cannot read using my new bi-focals. I now have to go to an ophthalmologist for my insurance to pay for a new pair and most importantly, to be able to read.
