    Hi,
    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.

    Taps.

    every which what way) to death.

    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.
