A while back, I went shopping for new eyeglass frames and got threatened with driver license confiscation if I didn’t buy the prescription they thought I should have. “I have to report that,” was the nice way to put it.
I bought the new glasses but since then have accepted the Soviet style of lying to people I used to deal with on an honest and fair basis.
And of course, I see quite well with the old glasses and the expensive new pair are in a drawer somewhere, utterly useless.

Yeah. They tried that Shiite on me when they found out I had insurance. They were gonna replace the frames but then I had to go through a whole exam and they said the prescription was wrong. Overall, the price would have been $300 and all I wanted was a $25.00 frame replacement. “ We have to report this to DOT.” I said go ahead, You gave me these 8 months ago.

That really sounds tyrannical — actually fascistic. They could threaten me with all kinds of things and I still wouldn't/couldn't pay that kind of money. Not sure if it is a state law or federal but here you can pick up your Rx after the examination and head out the door. In my case I use it to order eyeglasses off the net (yes, made in China — I have no choice). Last pair of bifocals was $49 complete. They're fine.
