    I just got some new glasses through work and I'm wearing them regularly for the first time since August. My eyes are wicked googley. Is the common for a new prescription? I feel like my eyes never got this way with my old glasses. My eye doc inspected the glasses and my eyes and said they should be fine. He tested me for bifocals and says I don't need them. Still, my up close vision and depth perception are kind of whacky.

    It'll take a few days to get used to them, especially if they have weird lens shapes that add vieweing angle.

    I just got new glasses in the past few weeks. A need to acclimate your eyes to them is not uncommon.

    That happens to me even when I switch between my contacts and glasses. Takes about 10-15 minutes to acclimate
