I wanted to re-order some contact lenses this morning. My prescription should be reviewed on 18 May 2008, apparently, so I was not allowed to order six months’ supply.

Now by my reckoning, I ought to be able to order four or five months’ supply but Tesco only offer me the option of three, six or twelve months and as they’re blocking me from ordering beyond May, I’m kinda stuffed.

So if I ordered just three months’ supply, what would they want me to do for April and May? Walk around blindly? Use lenses I should have binned?

Stupid system.

So I have placed two order for three months’ supply each! We shall see what orders they will accept…
