    I just resently got new glasses and I havent worn glasses for about 2
    years now. But here I am with them again. But my problem is something
    ive never had before. My glasses that are for my hyperopia(farsighted)
    are OK(notice only ok not good or great) for upclose like reading for
    what they are suppost to help in but for far away distant things even
    15ft in front of me start to get blurry. Now I have posted once before
    on here about a week ago and I was told that it could take some time
    for my eyes to get used to them. Well nothing has improved and it
    actually gives me headachs and the eye with hyperopia gets kinda
    stressed. Is this still normal after one week? This glasses were not
    cheap so I am kind of worried on what I should do. Any replies are
    welcome.

    Go back to your optometrist. When my glasses were wrong I knew it
    immediately, but it certainly shouldn't take more than a few days to get used
    to any newness.

    Go back to your OD and tell him/her that your Rx is unacceptable. If it was
    an ophthalmologist, then find an OD (optometrist). If they put drops in your
    eye before the exam, then tell them you want a new exam without the drops,
    or try another OD.

    When you go for an eye exam, make sure your eyes are not tired, and you
    don't have a hangover from alcohol or drugs (unless you plan on being stoned
    24 hours a day).
