Why Does It Sometimes Take Time To Adjust To New Eye Glasses?
TEMPORARY ADJUSTMENT to your new visual prescription is EXPECTED. Vision is very complex. Each eye has been corrected individually to achieve optimal visual function, and your eyes have been balanced to maintain precise two-eye coordination. Your final visual prescription will provide you with EFFORTLESS visual ability and comfort.
YOUR BRAIN MUST NOW DIGEST AND ACCEPT THIS "NEW VISUAL DATA" WHILE GRADUALLY SUPPRESSING PAST VISUAL MEMORY. Age, general health, medicines, temperament and the complexity of a prescription change are factors that make adaption different for us all.
It is normal to experience a pulling or a drawing feeling in or around your eyes during this adaptation period. Flat objects, straight lines or right angles may appear tilted, curved or out-of-square. The floor may appear uphill or downhill. Temporary adjustment difficulties are to be expected and will VARY GREATLY FROM PERSON TO PERSON. If you wear your new prescription as recommended, full adaption should occur within 1-2 weeks. Switching back and forth from your new prescription to your old prescription will delay adjustment time.
