• Wearing a tinted contact lens to defeat the color blindness screen at MEPS?

    I have contemplated a scheme where I may wear a red tinted contact lens over my non dominant eye to MEPS in order to defeat the color vision test. I am red green color blind. Is this unprecedented? Could the deception go undetected or will the eye examiner notice I am wearing a contact lens?

I am 29 years old now and I’m afraid they will just keep getting worse until I go blind. Has anyone had eyesight this bad for so long and had it stay, or does it get way worse than this? Thanks!

  • Are contact lens manufacturers running a scam?

    I'm a fairly new contact user (been 6 months). My optometrist asked me to throw away the lenses every month and break open a new pair from the boxes. Did this for the first two months.

    I'm a fairly new contact user (been 6 months). My optometrist asked me to throw away the lenses every month and break open a new pair from the boxes. Did this for the first two months. Then on, I've been using the same pair for 4 months- and I have absolutely no problems at all. The lenses are performing very well, I can see distant objects just as clearly as I do with my glasses. I don't have any eye pain or anything of that sort. This experience makes me believe the manufacturers are running a scam so they can sell more lenses. I don't blame my optometrist, I've known him for a long time and he won't try to scam me- he's just repeating what's written on the box, and that writing is from Bausch and Lomb... What do you think?

  • Could I need to get glasses?

    Best answer: Well, it should be a no brainer , get an eye exam and find out if you need glasses or not. You will be wasting money if you have your DMV test first and fail.

  • How do you buy prescription glasses from stores you are not a member at?

    Can you just ask for a copy of your prescription (is that what it's called?) at your own optometrists and just take it to any other glasses store so they can also get the right lenses for the frames you choose?
