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.
