    I got my glasses from an online optical and wear it for a few days and had a weird feeling. It's hard to explain, but somewhat like itch, dry feeling of my left eye and dizzy. I am trying to figure out whether it's caused by the wrong prescription glasses or my brain.

    I have 2 glasses from the same online optical and ordered at the same time.
    Since I have this itchiness, I have them checked at a local optometrist, and it turns out:

    1)
    Right -4.5 -.5 178
    Left -4.25 -.75 29

    2)
    Right -4.5 -.5 177
    Left -4.25 -.75 154

    Looks like they made right eye correctly, but the left one is a bit off.
    Especially the first one, the axis supposed to be 180(Please see my prescription below).
    Should I send them back for a replacement? Or Is it okay to keep?

    Thank you so much.

    This is my prescription:
    Right -4.5 -.5 180
    Left -4.25 -.5 180

    If the third number (is the axis) for your left eye is not close then you need to send it back and have them remake it...
    You will continue getting dizzy if you continue to wear that lens.
    The middle number is an insignificant change and wont effect you, also while checking a prescription under a lensometer, the optical may have the rx .25 higher or lower...
    I wouldnt worry about that, I would worry about getting the axis changed.
