    I'm a new wearer of contact lenses and I am having problems adjusting.
    I'm on my third trial pair with a total of about 2 weeks total wear.
    the first 2 sets were unbearable vision wise. This is the best set.

    I'm wearing Frequency 55's. The script from the blisters 1s:
    right 8.4/14.4 -2.75 -1.75 x 30
    left 8.4/14.4 -6.00 -1.75 x 130

    I've noticed a dramatic increase in depth perception with these lenses
    as compared to my glasses. The problem I am having is that in visually
    "busy" areas, like looking down a supermarket asile or something with an
    irregular surface, I find it really hard to focus on one area or item.
    At times it is almost overwhelming. The Dr. seems to think that my
    vision is OK (20/25) on the chart. I haven't had any issues with the
    lenses themselves, they are comfortable for about 10-12 hours.

    Is this just my brain needing to get accustomed to the extra depth
    information? Is this abnormal? How long does it take to adjust?

    Thanks for the help

    You have quite a difference in the prescription between your two eyes.
    With glasses, this causes problems that contacts won't have. I would
    think that it would take your brain some time to get used to this.
