Overall
Bard Optical made glasses for ...

Bard Optical made glasses for me that were so defective as a result of poor workmanship, that they caused me two years of double vision and migraine headaches. I had numerous tests including an MRI of my brain to make sure that there was not a tumor that was causing my double vision and headaches.



Finally my ophthalmologist tested not only my eyes but also my glasses and found that the cause of these significant problems was the glasses. These glasses, which were made by Bard Optical's own lab, had more than 4 times the recommended amount of base down prism in my left eye and more than 5 times the recommended amount of base down prism (set by the American Standards Institute ANSI) in my right eye. This created a vertical imbalance that my brain and the muscles of my eyes could not overcome and the result was double vision and migraine headaches. The standards set by the ANSI have been established for our protection and should be followed by all optical providers.



When I contacted Diana J, Hall, owner of Bard Optical, she responded with a letter in which she stated that the prism was normal in lenses of this nature and that Bard Optical's services met the applicable standard of care. In my opinion, their standard of care is not what it should be and is definitely outside the ANSI standards. When I had new glasses made at Illinois Eye Center, the migraine headaches and double vision disappeared. At that point, there was not a doubt in my mind that it was the glasses made by Bard Optical, that caused me years of suffering and almost $10,000.00 in medical expenses.



Bard Optical is the assumed name of J.A.K Enterprises, Inc. When I filed a small claims case against Diana J. Hall and Bard Optical the case was dismissed because the proper name is J.A. K. Enterprises, Inc. They won on a technicality even though both Bard Optical and J.A.K. Enterprises, Inc. have the same address and Diana J. Hall is the President of both companies. The corporate office of Bard Optical at 8309 N. Knoxville Ave. Peoria, Illinois, had no signage and looked like a vacant building. Because it was so difficult to find them, it took almost two months to serve the papers of the lawsuit.



I hope that by reading this you will be armed with the knowledge to protect yourself and the people you love.
