Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
what type of problems are you having with your glasses?
How old are you?
How old is your Rx? Do you know the Rx?
How is your vision with the glasses on?
That would be different than your glasses Rx.
Am I correct in assuming that you got the glasses yesterday?
That is not necessary.
It is not unusual to feel funny for a while after getting new glasses. It can take up to 3 weeks for your brain to adjust.
This is very common and not a cause for concern
If it doesn't get a bit better every day you can go back to the optical shop and make sure the glasses were made correctly. If they were, and you are still having problems then go back to the doctor and make sure that your refraction, and glasses Rx, was correct.
But, at this point, I'd just give things more time.
Does this make sense to you?
Are you still there?
I guess you have stepped away from your computer.

Sorry my reply didnt come through
I had to get on my desktop but My RX was in here it says OD -1.75 -0.50 X 170 OS -1.25-.1.25X10
Gremlins are at it again lol, ate my response lol. My contacts is -2.00 in the right eye -1.25 -0.75 x20 in left eye
I can see really well, the most vivid I've ever seen but its really scaring me to get dizzy ( a fear of mine being I have fainted a lot- I have bad anxiety attacks) I described it like you know before you faint everything gets tooooo clear thats how im seeing. Or like if its a dim day and the sun comes out and its just so vivid and clear and even shiny. My contacts are doing the same not the dizzy but the vivid makes me think Im about to pass out feeling its just so vivid. And I've always went to the eye dr every 6 months or so as I like to keep a check, but this time I got a little house bound and didnt go for I guess it was a year and 9 months or something like that. And my contacts they said I just had a quarter step up but its just sooooo vivid and strange feeling.
I dont have my script handy for the last one, but I just dont want to be going around in possible strong scripts and damage my eyes or anything? Or be afraid to get out ect. Is it bad to go back and forths between glasses? If I were to chicken out and grab my old pair? I dont want to hurt my eyes ect.
