Why I use VISION for my glasses,
I have a challenging prescription, strongly longsighted and with an astigmatism. I work in software (including developing this website) so I will spend long days reading both documents and from the screen.
As the years advance, I would dread the next set of glasses, they would cost many hundreds of pounds with the latest lenses and frankly they didn’t work. In 2007 after about a year of lens reworks showing little improvement they introduced me to Jeff (clearly their expert trouble shooter).
I can still remember the delight that came from Jeff’s carefully prepared varifocals, they worked so well, my productivity/confidence improved, I could see the floor, the documents, the screen and distance with such clarity… amazing. After that I just asked for Jeff who seemed to enjoy the challenge, applying his expertise weighing up the options and delivering yet another improvement to my vision. I quickly realised that I was not alone in using Jeff as the unsung expert solving many a difficult issue.
When Jeff started out on his own I was frankly concerned that without the backup of a large organisation his ability to deliver “my specials” might be diminished. Actually the reverse is true. The larger organisations have developed relationships with specific labs and lens manufacturers reducing their capability to provide bespoke services. Jeff has developed relationships many manufacturers and has earned their respect… he seems to have a VIP pass to deliver the best possible result. Frankly I would pay anything for my glasses but another bonus of using VISION is that the cost of these specials from VISION was significantly cheaper (in both time and money).
As the larger organisations seem to employ less and less experienced staff only capable of delivering the easy prescriptions, I realise that I am reliant on Jeff’s service for my glasses. He is a resource that needs protecting, so, if you have any feedback on the website please feel free to email me at JohnParkin@OceanProjectManagement.com.
Thank you Jeff.
