New Glasses Blurry In One Eye
Try dimestore: It sounds like mostly your have near vision issues. Were the lost glasses bifocals? With a distance correction you needed? If not you can buy $10 glasses and do very well by them. And if you just want something in the meanwhile, el cheapo glasses are not a major investment and can be used later as a back up. ...Read more
Consider this: Your brain will decide whether your one eye blurriness is a problem. It can decide to ignore the input from one eye, to have a clear image. If it does so over a long period of time (years) the brain can turn off most of the information coming from that eye. The visual loss is called amblyopia (lazy eye). Only a good eye exam and consultation with your eye doc can decide this for you. ...Read more

Why can't I see out of my left eye with my contact lens? (even got a new one). I can see perfectly fine with my glasses.
Wrong Rx: The prescription is not equivalent to your glass rx. If this was a refill of your present cl rx, they made a mistake. Have your eye physician take a look to figure out the problem. ...Read more
My name's Julie. I got my glasses 2day. I've had to wear my old ones longer than needed. I still have eye strain. Is it from the old or new glasses?
With new prescription glasses, my left eye sees clearly if right is covered, but right eye is blurry if left is covered. Sign of wrong rx?
I presently wear eyeglasses for distance. Left eye needs cataract surgery only; one month for new Rx. How can I drive wearing present glasses?
Your depth perception may be off, so drive carefully, particularly at night and on freeways.

Eye redness w/ tears one day in right eye and sensitivity to light. Now right eye is somewhat blurrier than usual (w/glasses) and seeing things double?
My eye lid keeps twitching, so I got these new glasses after my old ones broke. They are the same prescription as my old ones. I ran out of contacts and started using my glasses full time now. All of a sudden. After a day. My right eye lid started twitchi
Most: Most often, twitching is actually caused by stress, lack of sleep or caffeine. Modify these issues and things should get better. But it may take weeks for the twitching to go away. It is not related to changes in glasses, contact lenses etc. More complete info about eye twitching here:. ...Read more
I got my eyes graded and my prescription eyeglasses back on 2009 and it is now 2013. Should I go get new ones?
Yes: You should get your eyes examined at least every two years. ...Read more
New eyeglasses, right eye vision still blurring at the edge of the lens. When will this get back to normal?
Adjustment period: All eyeglasses have "edge" effects due to the difference in power between the center and the edges. This frequently produces some edge blur and changes which, for instance, mean you have to re learn where your feet are when you walk. Your brain will rapidly adjust to this in several days or so. ...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 more
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
May not be glasses: At your age you may have dry eye, prolonged visual tasks can decrease your blink rate up to 70% resulting in that "tired" feeling. ...Read more
Makes sense: If your Vision has correctable improvement with glasses, why not clear up your visual world. This is particularly helpful for performing distance related activities. If you are otherwise asymptomatic, you are not required to wear glasses. Note that there are driving restrictions to visual acuity that does not meet certain state enforced minimum levels. ...Read more
First you need:
To see eye doctor to rule out serious cause
then must get sugars well controlled

I have seen a lot of mixed opinions on if pinhole glasses will help one's eyes, but will wearing them do any harm?
My script is sph+0.50cyl-0.25 both eyes and axis is 096 in one and 100 in the other then it says add+1.50 how bad is my vision do I need glasses?
Minor distance power: Your distance correction is small and you could function well without correcting that. You did not state your age, but apparently are over 40 and need near magnification for presbyopia which is age related. You could get this over the counter. A bifocal could be made which would give you the convenience of having one eyeglass for all distances. ...Read more
My sister has stribismus and now wears contacts instead of glasses. Her eyes keep crossing though which she claims is due to dry eyes messing up contacts. Does she need new perscrip/go back 2 glasses?
Check glasses: Your prescription may be off, have it checked. If you're over 40, then wearing single-vision distance correcting glasses may make near vision blurry. This is due to age related presbyopia. Taking the glasses off may allow you to see the small print. The other option is a bifocal. ...Read more
