trapezoid vision with new eyeglasses

    This is the first time I am using prescription eyeglasses. My RX is:

    right: -.75 sph,
    left -.25 -1.25X180.

    When I look at my computer screen with the glasses on, the screen
    looks like a trapezoid on its side. The right side is narrower than
    the left. The effect is not as noticable when I look at distant
    objects, like TV from a distance. What can be a cause of this? Is it
    just an adjustment period, since I haven't used Rx glasses before?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Do you mean the effect goes away after I get used to the glasses and
    then I start seeing rectangles properly again? or will it stay the
    same but won't bother me much? Do contact lenses have the same effect?
    I may consider switching to them if they don't have any of these
    problems.

    I thought it might be an issue with the lenses and was going to ask
    them to be redone. It's too bad if I am stuck with the distorted
    vision.

    Thanks for the answer!

    Thanks a lot for the answers, but my whole plan was to use the
    eyeglasses only occasionally, while driving, watching TV, etc. If my
    brain adjusts to the distorted vision with the glasses, would I start
    seeing trapezoids when I am not wearing them? :)
