    I had to post my question here - wanted to get some feedback about my
    glasses problem. Basically I got these glassses in Jan of this year
    from Lenscrafters. After wearing them, the vision was really clear.
    However in the next 6 months, I got numerous adjustments to the frame
    due to 2 issues - it was sliding down my nose / was very tightly
    fitting on the side. But after the latest round of adjustments, am
    feeling a little wobbly when I walk. Basically a little dizzy
    imbalanced kind of feeling. For reading its not bad. The vision is
    good (I can see the far off things very clearly). The frame has a
    little play in it and I try to move it a little bit up/down/sideways
    so as to not get this problem. But overall the problem's remained.

    So is this due to a balance issue of the frame ? I got my eyes
    checked again from the same doctor and she said the prescription's
    good. Any recommendations would be welcome.

    Thanks to the feedbacks. I went back to the shop to get the frame
    adjusted again. Today it appears much better, no dizzy feelings.
    What I found yesterday before I went in, was that the frame was not
    sitting horizontally on my face - the right lens was at a higher level
    than the left lens. Especially I've got some axis / cylinder in the
    prescription, so I guess a slight unsymmetry could cause weird
    problems. Thanks.
