Perhaps the original poster had progressive lenses, that turn dark, and that was the issue. The person who took the picture should have known that was a problem, although if you go to Walgreen's, etc., you're probably talking someone making $8 an hour..

$8.00 and hour employee can be a very qualified person. Just because they are making $8 and hour doesn't make them incompetent. At least they are working, earning money and not relying on hand outs.

One of the questions on the renewal application is the date of your next trip, so they know when you need your passport. Everything has been done except for the photo, so I'm sure it will be back to you in plenty of time.

In defense of Walgreen's photodesk employees, my guy caught the darkened lenses, made me remove my glasses and then retook the pictures.

My point is that your particular guy might well have been Johnny on the spot, but for the amount of money they're getting paid, don't expect a genius...

And gee, if they're getting paid $8 AN hour, perhaps there is hope for them yet...

I do have transition lenses, but we had been in the store for about 20 minutes and they were no longer darkened. My wife wore her glasses and there was no problem. Anyway, we got the pictures taken both times at Costco, and the 2nd time there was no charge. She got her new passport back in about 3 weeks, 2 weeks later I got the e-mail saying that there was a problem.

Ok, do you get your passport before the new places on Orient Beach open? Let's start a pool

...doesn't your appearance change when you remove glasses? This action by border folks does not make a whole lot of sense. Don't think anyone would want to see my bloodshot eyes anyway.

They have to see the color of your eyes in the photo, I think.
