Many choices: This is a discussion to be had with your eye doctor. Usually, this discomfort will subside aas you become used to the new prescription. If not, you could consider not wearing glasses and wearing contacts instead or perhaps even laser vision correction. If these are not an option, changes in the material and shape of the glasses lens can sometimes help. ...Read more

How long is the average time period you experience dizziness and off balance when first time getting new glasses?
I have a strange dizziness. The room isn't spinning. It's more like when I get new glasses for astigmatism. What could cause it? No headache
Vision has to adjust: The visual system is quite important in maintaining a sense of balance/equilibrium, & sensing "dizziness." This is because there are discrete connections between the optic nerves and the cerebellum as well as other areas of the brain important to control balance. When you get new glasses your eyes need time to adjust and the connections to the cerebellum need to "reset." ...Read more

See your physician: In my experience, vision issues and the wrong glasses are blamed for everything from headache to dizziness. Only rarely does this turn out to be the case. I suggest a visit to your doctor. And if it's been a long time since your eyes were checked, then by all means see your eye doctor, too. ...Read more

My past glasses were 300 but im using 375 con lenses, then now my glasses were 400 bc the dr. Recommend it that way is it normal for me to feel dizzy?
No: First things first. Are you dizzy w/o glasses or contact lenses? If not, then incorrect lenses might be causing dizziness (also get your family doc to check for other causes of dizziness). Go back to where your glasses/contacts where made/sold & ask for re-exam of eyes or re-evaluation of glasses/contacts. With that said, I will defer to my ophthalmology colleagues for their expertise. ...Read more

I drank 2 glasses of wine then took a sip of tabasco. I felt dizzy and fainted. What could be the reason? Is it vasovagal syncope?
Vasovagal syncope: This is a common cause of fainting. I doubt two glasses of wine would cause a fainting spell. Have some basic bloodwork done and get a doctor to examine you in person right away. Many doctors send patients who faint to the ER since it can represent a life threatening emergency. ...Read more
