New Glasses or Bad Prescription

Discussion in 'Glasses' started by robinson.william, Sep 8, 2006.

  1. I've been wearing contact lenses now for over 6 years and I have relied
    on the pretty much exclusively. When I first got my contacts I also got
    a new pair of glasses and no problems with either. Since then my
    prescription has gone up twice (slightly). For my first upgrade I chose
    just to get contacts but the second (just recently) I chose to get both
    glasses and contacts. The new contacts work fine and I have no problems
    with them, the glasses however have been a nightmare so far. Here are
    my problems

    1) My vision isn't nearly as clear as the contacts
    2) When I move my head objects bend
    3) When I look at something that I know is flat (such as a wall) it
    appears to have a hump in it, 4) When I look at object that move fast
    or spin (car wheel or someone running) I see a blue blur next to it
    5) I have headaches and I can feel my eyes straining

    I went back to the doctor's office and the technician told me that my
    eyes should "get used" to the new lenses in 3 hours. It's been almost a
    day now and things haven't improved in the slightest. Is this normal or
    should I get my eyes re-examined

    Thank you

    To get the best answer it would help if you post your exact Rx, the
    manufacturer/model of the lens, the lens material/index (1.5. 1.60, 1.67,
    polycarb, etc). Your optical shop where you got your lenses will provide
    this info. If you obtained your lenses from your OD the they are legally
    required to provide a written copy of your Rx (just ask).
