I had the same issue and I ended up just prying the lamp bezel down with a flat blade screwdriver and then pressing it back up when done. Those screws are a joke and don't really have threads on them anyway.

slide a flat screwdriver under the head of the screw and give a little pressure on it as you turn it with another screwdriver. This should make it bite. I believe the bulb pulls out, not screw.....don't quote me on that though.

Those really arent screws. They are more of a push in type trim fastener. I use a pick with a fine point to get under the edge of the middle part of the fastener & pop it out. Its the part that looks like a screw. It spreads the insides out to hold firm like a wall anchor.
