    Hi guys,

    Thanks everyone for replying to my previous post. It appears that the
    problem was indeed with the frames and the shape of the lenses. My
    optometrist said that my old glasses have very flat lenses, but the
    new ones follow a more rounded line. He straightened the frame so that
    it doesn't round my face as much, and he drastically increased the
    angle between the earpieces and the rest of the frame (the angle that
    you can see from the side). He said these changes basically achieved
    the effect of my old glasses. He also mentioned that my brain got used
    to the flat lenses, but that it's wrong and they don't do it anymore.
    I don't know if it's really such an outdated way of doing things, the
    glasses are only three years old. But the irritating blur is gone now,
    and when I look at myself in the mirror I'm no longer subtly
    distorted, so I'm happy. Thanks everyone again for your replies.
