  • maybe they're the wrong prescription

  • I have and after getting my glasses remade 3 times, we finally figured out the problem, I needed more of a curve on my lense because that is what I was used to. Newer glasses have a flatter curve because it makes the lenses less thick, but I don't care how thick they are, I just need to be able to see without getting headaches and nausea. Another reason you can get the headaches & nausea is because the prescription part of the lense was not centered correctly in the frame and you're not seeing out of your glasses correctly. I hope you can get it figured out soon, because there is nothing worse than feeling sick everytime you put your glasses on.

  • I am actually an optician and work in an ophthalmology clinic, it sounds like you have the wrong prescription... did you just have a baby? or are you expecting? the hormones in you body from the baby even up to a year past giving birth can effect your vision, so make sure your optometrist knows if you had or have a child.

  • It took me a couple of weeks to adjust to mine. I would get dizzy wearing them if I was walking around a lot. I've adjusted though!
