New glasses: Sometimes the exam is not right the first time. It is important at your age to have a dilated exam to get an exact prescription for your glasses. If this is not done you can have different eyeglass readings depending on how tired your eyes are and other problems. It is unusual for eyes to change on their own that much in a few months,
