... We've decided to give up and my optician has made up some single vision lenses for now, with a view to trying again in a year or two probably with glasses that have less potential problems, such as distortion. I think think presciption may have been out too, I don't know. ... (5 replies)

... Most people wearing progressives for the first time have a bit of wooziness and they give up immediately. However, it is best to stick with it and it soon passes. Clean them just like any other lens on a bit of greasy rag - no, seriously, just use a soft cloth with a squirt of lens cleaner. (9 replies)
