Is It Ok For My Eyes To Feel Weird When I First Wear New Glasses
Sometimes: You are probably experiencing edge effects. A new eyeglass, frequently with a higher power lens than before, will distort the vision around the edges (you will have to relearn where your feet are). This causes some strangeness but if the prescription is ok (can you see clearly straight ahead with each eye?) then you will quickly adapt with regular wear. ...Read more

Not necessarily: People who need glasses to see properly often see great immediately. If the glasses are too weak or strong, do not sit at the right position, are tilted, or have their "sweet spot" off center, there can be difficulty getting used to them. In these cases, the glasses need to be adjusted. If you never wore glasses or there is a big change in prescription, it may take some time to adjust to them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Important to see : Glasses are intended to help you see well at 20/20 vision. If you're only using your glasses to watch television, and don't feel you need to wear them full time then that is your prerogative. However, if you're driving, or going to drivers ed to learn to drive, you need to have 20/20 vision, so that you can see the details of the road, the traffic, and the people crossing better. Most people like seeing well. ...Read more
Just got glasses for far away seeing. When i wear them and look at things at different distances it always blurry but eyes adjust 2 that distance. Why?
Accomodation: You should first return to the doctor who ordered the glasses to make sure the rx is correct. It takes some time to adjust to various types of glasses and your optician could advise you of these items, eg, pupillary distances, optical centers, vertex measurements, frame size and possible prism effects. There is more than the power of the lens in making comfortable glasses. ...Read more
