Nah, the prescription is right but they made the lenses to suit somebody else. They need to be fitted properly too, so if you ask them to make sure that a screen at this height and angle with your head placed here, is in focus, they can easily do it. I tried ordering a cut price spare pair from gogglesforu, and they were as you described. A proper optician will mark the dummy lens with marks showing the factory where the transition in prescription should happen. The ones I now have are exactly what I want. Laptop on lap, screens at two heights on desk. The only time it doesn’t work is when it’s night and light level is low. Your pupils iris open and depth of field reduces. Normal lighting give sufficient depth of field. As I’m sitting here, in bed, the pad is sharp, but so is the tv thats 3m away, the transition is in the gap between them at the comfy head angle.
