Can't See Clearly Out Of New Eyeglasses
I just got new eyeglasses.  Verilux lenses.  Bifocal. I can only see clearly out of the new lenses if i put my chin nearly touching my chest and look up through the top 1/4" or so to drive.  I can see fine with my old lenses for around the house, the new lenses are just a bit better for watching tv and around the house, however i told the eye doctor i needed to see road signs more clearly to drive...thus got the new perscription.  The person who adjusts has told me, after many adjustments, that i need to "let my brain absorb the new data from my eyes" to wear this very uncomfortible blurry glasses until my brain accepts the new vision.  I was told Do Not go back to the old perscription even though i can see better at short distances with them....help!  I'm ready to give up

Dear wildflower509

There are many reasons why it may take time to adapt to new glasses.  It usually takes a week or two , to get adjusted.  If not, see your eyeMD and have him/her check the new prescription against what was written as well as the fit of the lenses.
