When you get new prescription glasses are your eyes suppose to feel like they wanna water?

New glasses. When a patient receives a new glasses prescription, they may need some time to get adjusted to the new glasses. This includes a strained feeling in your eyes which could cause them to water. If the symptoms persist for more than a few days, then you should have the glasses checked to make sure the proper prescription was made then to the eye doctor to make sure the rx is correct.
