I have a very vexing problem. Recently I've purchased new eyeglasses from several different sources. Three pairs of eyeglasses cause a headache that doesn't go away after two weeks. Two pairs are fine. It is a new Rx. My eye doc said the base curve in new glasses must be copied from my previous ones, +3.75. But, the newest pair of eyeglasses I bought DO have this base curve and still give me headaches. What could be wrong? If the P.D. is off could this be the problem?
OD -5.75 -1.00 X 005 P.D. 60
OS -6.00 -0.75 X 180
The three glasses that give me a headache were very inexpensive, 2 of those ordered online. I had one of these checked at an Optician, and everything measures up, they're made correctly. But these cheap glasses I can't wear. I could get them remade, but I con't know how to change them.
One pair I did have remade with the base curve changed and a small +1.25 progressive added, and now they are fine. But the other two pair are unwearable. What could these cheap manufacturers be doing that is causing headaches for me?
Thank you. My PD is 60, and I'm a female. One pair of the glasses were checked and the PD is correct, 60.
My eye doc checked one pair and said the base curve was the problem, so i had a pair remade and now they're fine. But I had a third pair made specifically with the base curve of +3.75 in each lens, and they give this same headache.
it appears that you get what you pay for. The online glasses are very inexpensive.
