Last summer I had dizziness and mild nausea for six weeks before going to an optician
. The doctor said I had to have either bifocals
or progressives, but I could not stay with a regular lens
. I got the second-best progressives, and they seemed fine. Now for the last six weeks I have dizziness and occasional nausea again. The skin around my eyes and my forehead feels tight. I thought it might be a number of things - diabetes, dehydration, poor diet, medications - all have been checked out, and the next thing apparently is a CT scan and a neurologist. I want to check everything else out first. If it is my glasses
, could it make sense that I didn't have dizziness since I got them, but only the last six weeks? If it is the lenses
, what alternatives do I have? I do have a "fishbowl" effect but I thought it was pretty minor. It is hard to tell if the problem goes away when I take the glasses off - sometimes it is there in bed, but then again that was also true last summer, which is why it took me so long then to figure it out. So 1. could it be the progressive lenses
and 2. if so, what can I do? what are the alternatives? Thanks!
P.S. Besides bifocals, is Lasik
an option? I have astigmatism, and the doctor said I would still need glasses. But I could afford it if I had to.
