looking for natural eye dr. - friendsofshenyun - 12-31-2016

My glasses broke over a month ago and I was unsure where to get my eye exam as the eye dr's generally prescribed 2,3 x stronger eye prescriptions. The natural vision eye doc in Cambridge MA charged $200 out of pocket. She'd expired when I went back for eye exam. That was years ago as I like to keep the same glasses until it is necessary to have another eye exam due to stronger and stronger eye prescription.

I ended up going to LCrafter at the mall.
The young eye dr. recommended: 
OD -7 C -0.5 Axis 025 
OS -6 C 0.00 Axis 00 0

I went back for a second fitting with another eye dr. in the same office knowing it was a stronger eye prescription than needed. 

The second eye dr. said he had about the same result but I know it is 2, 3x stronger than needed.
2nd new prescription:
OD -6.50 C -0.75 Axis 065
OS -5.50 C -0.25 Axis 100

Reading prescription
OD -5.50 C -0.75 A065
OS -4.50 C-0.25 A100

With the new eyeglasses, vision seems to be off when I look left. 
I found glasses had taken off when I was reading bottle labels at the pharmacy.

Didn't know whether I should get a new pair of eyeglasses with the new reading prescription as I am comfortable with the old reading prescription.

There was a post about someone going thru the 1.5hr eye exam and ended up with a reduced prescription.

I am looking for a natural vision optometrist in Boston area who won't overcharged as it will have to be out of pocket. 
ClarkNights Bates method on to do list.

Thank you

You could just insist on getting the same prescription saying that only those felt good for prolonged computer use. You can tell him the new ones give you headaches. I pulled this off successfully twice. ?
