Lost my glasses, now eyes are strained. Wait for new ones or use dimestore reading glasses?

Lost my glasses, now eyes are strained. Wait for new ones or use dimestore reading glasses?

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

If only one of my eyes is blurry, do I need to get glasses?

If only one of my eyes is blurry, do I need to get glasses?

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.

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

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?

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?

Possibly: It is definitely possible the rx is incorrect. However, if the glasses are not lined up appropriately, it may seem like your prescription is off. I would take the glasses back where you had them made to ensure proper alignment and if that seems ok, recheck the prescription. ...Read more

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

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

New eyeglasses, right eye vision still blurring at the edge of the lens. When will this get back to normal?

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

Does everyone's eyes have to adjust to new glasses?

Does everyone's eyes have to adjust to new glasses?

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

Is it ok for my eyes to feel weird when I first wear new glasses?

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

IF I have 20/40 vision in one eye and 20/50 in the other do I need glasses?

IF I have 20/40 vision in one eye and 20/50 in the other do I need glasses?

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

See an eye doctor who will evaluate the health of your eyes and discuss treatment options with you. ...Read more

I have seen a lot of mixed opinions on if pinhole glasses will help one's eyes, but will wearing them do any harm?

I have seen a lot of mixed opinions on if pinhole glasses will help one's eyes, but will wearing them do any harm?

No harm: Pinhole glasses only allow the image to be projected through the center of your cornea and lens where no refractive error will blur the image. This does no harm, but also won't help your underlying refractive error. ...Read more

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

Wearing new eye glasses weird feeling?

May need adjustment: There is a period of adaptation to new glasses for most that should be over in 1-3 days. If they do not feel correct after that, then check with the optician who made the glasses and then with the eye doctor who prescribed them to be sure they are correct. ...Read more

Why does wearing my nearsighted glasses make my eye blurry?

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
