How long does it take your eyes to get used to new prescription glasses?


Answer by  A22 (40)

Normally, the eyes need two to three days' time to get accustomed to new glasses. Mild headaches and a sense of imbalance are common during this time. If the symptoms persist for more than a week, visit your doctor again to check if your prescription is correct.

If your glasses are to correct any astigmatism,it could take a long time unless you wear them full time.

I have those glasses and I wore them full time from the beginning. It took 2 or 3 days to get used to the prescription and around 2 weeks to get used to the frame.After a month I did not realise anymore to be in glasses.  add a comment

It may take some time to adjust your eyes to get used to new prescription glasses. Each person's adjustment period will depends on their own unique prescription and their own individual situation. So we can not give a specific time or period that how much it takes to get used to new prescription glasses.

I can only speak from personal experience, but in my case adjustment has usually taken between one and two weeks.

This answer is different for everyone. Every pair of eyes adjusts according to its needs and what they are accustomed to. Be patient and don't expect results overnight.

you should really go to another doctor, it's best to get a second opinion.  add a comment
