Will it be comfortable to wear a pair of new glasses?
The answer is not for sure because many factors would affect the comfort of wearing new glasses. If your eyes are good at adjusting to new glasses, you may not feel any discomfort.
However, most people do feel uncomfortable when wearing a pair of new glasses, especially with an updated strength of prescription or a frame much bigger or smaller than your old ones.
The common issues you may experience when getting new glasses include:
√ Eye strain: Your eyes may feel tired and sore, especially for the first several days.
√ Blurry vision: You may not focus well on seeing clear.
√ Distortion: Objects may appear slightly warped, bent, wavy.
√ Depth perception: You may have trouble determining how near or far objects are.
√ Fishbowl effect: Objects may seem bent at the edges, like seeing through a fishbowl.
√ Headaches and nausea: Symptoms above can cause headaches, dizziness, and nausea.
In most cases, the more you wear your new glasses, the faster you'll get used to them. It usually takes one or two weeks to adjust (one more week for bifocals and progressive).
