Has anyone else experienced problems when wearing glasses with a new prescription? I got some new ones about a week ago. I only wear them for driving really, and occasionally for things like watching a presentation at work.
Anyway, when I put them on, I feel like I am standing in a hole! The ground looks considerably higher (about a stair’s worth).
I did look on the internet and found that many people have similar effects when they change glasses’ prescription, and then it should settle down within a few days. The problem for me is that a) I only wear them for a short period a couple of times a day (maybe one hour total) so presumably I won’t get used to them so fast as I don’t wear them enough, and b) I am finding this really disorientating and they make me feel very sick, and it’s even affecting my balance when I am not wearing the glasses (I assume because my brain just doesn’t like being challenged in this way, and it’s setting my MAV off).
I really don’t know whether to just go back to using my old glasses or whether if I stick it out they will settle down. The irony is that either pair of glasses help my vision, but the new ones don’t even seem noticably better then the old ones, so I am wondering why I am trying to endure sticking with them (probably cos they cost me a fair amount of money!)?
Any thoughts or advice?
