    Until my cristal-based eyewear is fabricated, I was given temporary
    glasses to wear. The lenses on these glasses are based on
    antireflective coating, which my original glasses already had. This
    temp eyewear is also based on the same, previous prescription.

    The problem is, I'm getting headaches from this new pair. And when I
    move my head to the side, I feel like I'm wearing funhouse glasses.

    I've never had this problem before, especially when the new pair is
    based on the exact same prescription.

    Is there a problem with this pair? Should I tough it out and force
    myself to get used to it?

    Are they single-vision lenses? If so, then you probably have an aspherical
    design. Also it is extremely important with an aspheric lens (or
    progressive) that the optical center of lens be positioned in the frames
    correctly relative to where your pupils are located. This requires a careful
    fitting of the frame on your face, and proper cutting of the lens for
    placement in the frame.

    Other possible problems could be that your Rx is wrong, especially the
    correction for astigmatism (cylinder and axis).
