I can’t get used to my new pair of glasses. Help!
If you are wearing glasses for the first time, it may take a while to get accustomed to them. The familiarization process is different for everyone – some may only need a few days while it may take up to two weeks for others.
In fact, it is very common that first-time wearers will only see the frame rim of the glasses for the first couple of days. It is also common for wearers with strong prescriptions to have spells of dizziness and headaches. This is because the brain’s visual center needs time to adapt to your new, improved quality of vision.
The key here is to wear your glasses consistently and on a normal basis so that your brain and eyes can become familiar with your new glasses and visual surroundings as quick as possible.
