For millions of years i have bought monthly Johnson & Johnson Acuvue contact lenses every single month. I hate my glasses. I can’t see. I buy lenses as a solution.
I always go to Keifan Optics. I have a little J&J loyalty card where they stamp your purchase every time and when you complete 6 purchases your given a free box of lenses.
Acuvue are good, reliable, and part of my monthly purchasing ritual and expenses. They fit my eyes like a silky glove, are very comfortable and don’t cause me any agitation or sensitivities as other brands before had done.
Whats wrong now?
Last friday, it was my monthly purchase time. We go in and here is what happened:
- “Hello i would like to buy 2 boxes of J&J daily Acuvue lenses plz, -1.5 and -2”
- Seller: “There is a new brand of lenses you can buy, better than Acuvue, Ciba Vision Dailies”
- “No thank you. Just the Acuvue”
- Seller: “The company forbade us from selling Acuvue now. We must only sell you Ciba Dailies”!
- “So you don’t stock the Acuvue anymore? you don’t have it?”
- Seller: ” No we have it. We just can’t sell it. You must take the Ciba Dailies.”
- “I only need Acuvue. I don’t want to risk sensitivties!”
- I was going to my grandma o needed to wear them the minute i bought them!
- Seller: “Ok buy the Ciba Dailies, and i will give you samples of the Ciba Dailies. Dont open the box, try the sample, if u don’t like it refund them and i will give you the Acuvue”
- “Why don’t you give us what we want, Acuvue, which is available, and give us a sample of Ciba Dailies to try y3ni!?”
- Seller: “I can’t because the selling company forbids it. I must only give you Ciba Dailies Samples if you buy Ciba Dailies lenses and you can’t buy Acuvue”
y3ni ana a6al3 il Acuvue o ye6al3ni, o mamnoo3 ashtereeh ib amor your sharika?! LAish?
Elnass ta36ee il awadm samples with their usual to market their new lenses ile they claim to be better! Enama il stupid marketing of forcing people to buy something they don’t want is totally beyond me!
Needless to say yatah za2ra o zaffa ma 7alam feha leen 3a6ana il Acuvue!!!
O i called Keifan Optics main line several times… el badala it7awel le raqam mobile o yetsakar!!!!
What next? Will i have to go to Dubai or Ba7rain to get my Daily Acuvue?
La 7awla wala Qowata Ella Be Allah!!!!!
