"Fishbowl" Effect with Eyeglasses
Greetings:

Two months ago I got a pair of new eyeglasses.  I have not worn glasses for a while (I normally wear contacts).  I have no problem with my contacts.  However, unfortunately when I wear my glasses, I get a "fishbowl" effect where vertical lines are "bent" or distorted in a circular pattern, similar to a "fisheye lens" effect on a camera.  My optometrist unfortunately doesn't seem to have any idea what is causing this problem (I have been to her office many times on this issue).  The next step we are going to try is using smaller frames/lenses.  To me this will probably not help, given that if I cover the edges of my lenses with my current glasses, the problem is still there.

The prescription is as follows:

Sun:

OD SPHERE:  -4.50;  CYLINDER: DS
OS SPHERE: -3.50;  CYLINDER:  DS

Work/Primary:

OD SPHERE:  -4.50;  CYLINDER: DS
OS SPHERE: -3.50;  CYLINDER:  DS - Add (+150)

The lenses themselves are:

Superview 1.67 SGP Gry Trans (Plastic), Single Vis
Exchange of HI INDEX 1.67 PREMIUM AR (I had the same problem with both of these lenses)

Thanks for your help!

Discuss this with you optometrist.  It depends on the size of the glasses and material.
