Then why did the insurance company issue me a card with my policy number on it? They asked for that too by the way.

Take a few weeks to get used to the graduated bifocals. i would never go back to the other type of bifocals.

Check out this site. There is no weight to these glasses.

There is no way I could wear them for that long, they were giving me headaches. Besides, I can't imagine why I would want to waste 70% of my field of vision through the lens. On the progressive bifocals I had there was only a thin strip (25%) at the top of my normal prescription and one small dot (5%) in the center of the bifocal part for useful up-close vision. The whole rest of the lens (70%) was always blurry and unusable at any distance. I had to turn my head like a bird instead of my eyes while trying to see out of the bifocal part and constantly tilt my head down to see out of the other part. So is this what it is like to look through yours, with 70% unusable?
Progressive lenses may work for another prescription strength. Maybe they work different for a negative lens. My good eye is +2.75 and the bifocal is +1.25. That'* reasonably strong magnification. So I don't know if it is because of my specific prescription needs or because Sears uses an incompetent lab, but the progressive bifocals they handed me didn't work.

This is a good review site too.

I've bought from Goggles4u and they are good glasses. Not the best "fit and finish" if you look at them closely but they look nice and the prescription is dead on.
