    New glasses, do they take a while to get used too?

    I thought i needed stronger glasses so got a eye test, turned out i did. I then went and ordered pair from select specs.

    I think they are too strong, they are giving me headaches and make me feel bad basically. Have they screwed up or is it my body getting used to it?

    Being a fellow Speccy 4 Eyes - When I get a new subscription, they feel rather strange for probably a few hours, I recently jumped from +2.00 and +2.25 up to +3.25 and +3.50 (Quite a big jump really, and they took about 2 days to settle down a feel normal) Ive never had serious headaches or discomfort from it.

    Is your sight focus and do they work well? How long have you had the lenses?

    Just pop back into your opticians and tell them what#s up, theyll probs test you again, but with a lot more tests to be more accurate.


    Goodluck on sorting it out

    Ive had glasses for a good few years, but these lenses have gone from +1 on each eye to +1.50. But i have only had the new ones a few days, thought they were strange last night but today at work was terrible.

    The focus is fine, just really bad headaches and making me nausus to the point of needed to take them off and put my old pair on.

    Yep deffo a wronG prescription - And its unsual to have the same prescription in both eyes - People usually have a dominant eye thats a lot stronger.

    The change is very small - so wear your old glasses for now - so long as you can cope with them, and your OK driving in them (Read a registration place 20 metres away and your fine)

    Good luck sorting it out.

    I only use them for computer use, vision other than that is fine, i only suffer from eye strain if i dont use them.

    My old prescription was +1 in both eye.

    You need to test it out at least a day. Preferably, you should start off wearing them 1st thing in the morning and then you'll probably adjust to this by the end of the day.

    Cant keep them on for more than 15 minutes or so without feeling sick. Is it my eye test is wrong or my glasses from selectspecs.com is wrong.

    Oooooo Didnt say you bought them online - Take the glasses to your opticians, theyll test the lenses in them in about 3 seconds. Youll then know if they match your prescription or not.

    Take them to an optitions and get them to test them and your eyes. I've always found it takes a week or so to get used to new glasses, thinking for the week that they've got it wrong!

    Sorry, i put select specs in the first post just forget to put .com on the end. Better go off to the opticians at some point then!

    Your prescription may be wrong, however it's worth checking that the frames fit your face properly. If the distance between your eyes and the lenses is wrong, you'll get a funny kind of vision that makes you feel off balance.

    It's easy for the technician to check the fit so I'd try that first.

    It might also be that the frames that you've chosen don't suit your prescription.

    Hope this helps.

    I have the same prescription in both eyes, one eye doesn't work with or without glasses and the other eye is long sighted. When I was younger I had one thick lense and one thin one but they made them the same for cosmetic reasons.
