Methods: Intolerant Patients were requested to provide their concerns, refraction measures, frame type, and any other pertinent information. In addition, retrospective clinical data was collected to assess the quality of the eye exams.

Result: The data collected over three months was analyzed using Microsoft Excel. Seven per cent (7%) of customers returned with complaints in total. The ages of the oldest and youngest consumers ranged from 15 to 58, with a mean age of 36.5 years. The bulk of complaints was from individuals who wore progressive single-vision lenses and bifocals.
