The other day, I visited the optometrist to order new eyeglasses. As my Vascular Parkinsonism limits me, I asked if they had a high chair, or one with arms, so that I could sit, and then be able to get up. The answer was an unconcerned "no," and I had to stand for an hour, which took a toll. I'm not a lawyer, nor an expert on the Americans with Disabilities Act, but I thought reasonable accommodations needed to be provided to those of us who are physically limited. At least at LensCrafters in North Texas, I appear to be wrong.
Have others encountered this problem? How have you handled it?
I use a walker (and a wheelchair is something I will not give in to).
