I recently switched to progressive lens. I developed itchy, weepy eyes. I returned to my optician, she diagnosed seasonal allergies. I have NEVER had seasonal allergies before and I am 45. She prescribed Pataday. The drops have helped, but I still have symptoms, especially when I work on my computer. I returned to my optician for lens adjustments twice. I am still having a lot of difficulty. My optician says it has nothing to do with my new glasses, but it seems too coincidental. Help!
It's more likely to be related to allergies or dry eyes and less likely to be due to the lenses. Go back to your old glasses and see if you still have the symptoms. That should prove to you it's not from the lenses.
I've tried going back to my old glasses, I have no symptoms when I wear them. The only problem is I can't see much out of them anymore. My eyes have mostly adjusted to the new ones. Today I was at home no symptoms, when I go to work and work on my computer all day that's when the symptoms kick in.
