How to tell whether I only need time to adjust to my new glasses or if the prescription is wrong?
Any difference between your new glasses and old ones can make you feel your prescription off sometimes. For this matter, it usually takes one or two weeks to adjust to the new glasses (two or three for multifocal).
But what if your eyes will not adjust to your new glasses even after an adjustment period? The potential problem is the incorrect prescription.
Errors of a prescription can occur during your eye examination, where your eye care provider interprets your answers about what you can and can't see. If you have the eye exam after work, when your eyes are tired and strained, it could skew the results of the exam.
For this matter, you need to go back to your eye care provider and request a double-check of your prescription.
