getting used to new glasses

Discussion in 'Glasses' started by Chris Nieuwenkamp, Oct 15, 2003.

  1. How long does it take to adjust to new glasses? I've had mine for over 2
    months now and I'm still having problems. Feels as if I have to strain
    the whole day to see clearly. According to my ophthalmologist I see
    better with the new glasses (left 100%, right 80%) than with the old,
    acc. to his records. Next week I'm seeing my optometrist, but I was
    wondering whether you here have any ideas? Glass in the two pairs is the
    same (Zeiss 1.9); frame model is about the same. I saw perfectly with my
    old glasses - if I hadn't lost them (don't ask;)) I wouldn't have gotten
    a new pair.

    Old (May 2001)
    R sph -13,25 cyl 1,00 A 85
    L sph -11,00 cyl 1,25 A 110

    New (July 2003)
    R sph -13,00 cyl 0,75 A 82
    L sph -11,25 cyl 0,75 A 113

    Thanks for any ideas!

    I'd get a careful verification check of the new glasses by your
    to make sure they are made according to the rx. Sometimes a careful
    adjustment (checking the vertex distance, pantoscopic angle) will be
    the difference in high minus prescriptions. I'd doubt the actual rx
    is the problem- the right eye was cut just a .25 diopter (unit).

    I've seen high myopes patients having problems with exact duplicate
    prescriptions with their glasses-doesn't take much in
    or alignment to cause problems.
