Written answer: Two different eye test results

I have had an eye test with 2 different opticians in the last month and got 2 different results.

The reason for this was i got an eye test at vision express and got new glasses made straight away.
I only need glasses for distance.
Over a few week of wearing the glasses something just didn’t feel right with the vision. I cannot put my finger on it.
So i went back to VE and they rechecked the glasses and said they were fine.

So i then went to a independent optician for an eye test and they gave me a completely different prescription.
