I just got new trifocal progressive glasses and I am having trouble seeing through the bottom of the lenses which are for doing things close up such as reading, sewing, crafts, etc. When I look through the bottom of the glasses an object appears to get smaller toward the bottom. If I'm looking at an 81/2 x 11 sheet of paper, from about the middle of the paper down to the bottom, the sides of the paper angle inward and cause the paper to look like a funnel shape. I also have another pair of single vision glasses for reading, sewing, etc which appear to be the same way. The Dr.'s office called the Lab and their initial thought was the lenses could be in backward but after sending them back apparently that was not the case and they have no idea why this is happening. Do you have any idea why this might be happening?View Thread
