Well....I suppose you can guess what I am going to say then, eh? lol!
While the difference in the power of the glasses needed for each eye could be the cause of your symptoms, this is called anisoconia, you have to give them more time.
Sometimes it can take up to 3 weeks for your brain to adjust to new glasses.
As to your second question....a refraction is a refraction. While the results may very from time to time, especially during the post-op period, it is the same test at the ophthalmologists
office as it is at the optometrists office.
So. Yes. That statement is full of crap....as you so succinctly put it. :-)
So. What is the take home message? Give the new glasses three weeks of full time wear before you throw them away.
Does this answer your question to your satisfaction?
