I have worn glasses for many years. I always get the scratch protection and in all the years of wearing glasses, I have never had a scratch on a lens. Once, I did put my glasses on the vanity, then turned on the curling iron, which was too close to the glasses. You can imagine my surprise when I picked them up to put them on and there was a big melted spot right in the middle of one lens . . yep, a hole! I called the optometrist’s office to see how long it would take to get new glasses. The nice lady looked at my records and said “Your scratch protection will cover the cost of new lenses so I’ll order them for you!” Scratch protection covered my negligence in putting the hot curling iron too close to my lenses?
A month or so ago, while cleaning my glasses, I thought .. that’s a scratch! It wasn’t in an area that bothered my vision so I didn’t worry about it. A few days later, I noticed another scratch and it did bother my vision so I went to the optometrist and they ordered new lenses for me. I could not imagine how I had scratched my glasses twice and had never scratched them before.
Last week, thankfully before my new lenses arrived, I was in the sewing room with Boots. Sometimes when I’m over there, I stretch out on the sofa, and stick my glasses on the end table. When I was playing with Boots, with my glasses on the table, he spotted them and grabbed them . . grabbed them by the lenses with those razor sharp teeth! Then I remembered . . he had done that before. That’s how my lenses are getting scratched.
Today I took the glasses and had the new lenses put in. I can see . . I am no longer peering through scratched lenses.
I’m so happy I figured it out before getting the new lenses and having him scratch those. I will not take my glasses off and leave them where he can get to them again. Not even for one second! Live and learn!
