Retest: Glasses generally improve the vision noticeably. If you have been used to good vision from each eye and have gotten a new pair which does not provide this, then go back to the doctor (you were seeing an ophthalmologist -right?) who can check this out and get a proper correction. Most optical shops will fix a lense for any reason in a two month window from the first eyeglass made there.

Distorted vision when wearing my new glasses. What could be wrong?

Multiple causes: It could be the incorrect prescription. It may have been transcribed wrong or may have been made incorrectly. It could also be a large change from your last glasses which could be difficult to get used to. Also could be that you dont tolerate the lens type you have (progressive etc.) or the frames (to narrow or too wide). If it persists beyond 3 weeks or so of full time wear then get them checked.
