What's the best way to get used to new glasses?


When you start wearing your glasses for the first time, it surely gives you a much clearer vision but it can create a sort of discomfort for you as you are not used to having eyeglass frames resting on your face. At the same time, seeing things more clearly than before can also have various consequences.


This may take only a few hours or days to get used to, but if you have stronger prescription eyeglasses you could get headaches or feel dizzy, and it may take you few weeks to feel comfortable.



But what can you do to get used to new glasses? Here are our best tips:


Tips for Adjusting to New Glasses


1) Wear glasses regularly

Your eyes need an adjustment period to be trained to get used to your new glasses. If you constantly take them off and rest your eyes it'll take you much longer to get used to wearing them!


2) Take it slow

That being said, especially if you have glasses with multiple lenses, like bifocal, trifocal, multifocal or progressive lenses, it might take you longer to adjust. If you're having a hard time, begin wearing your glasses while sitting down, then wear them when you walk up and down the stairs, then exercise or do an activity, and finally, you can trust yourself to drive while wearing the new glasses!



Exercises to Adjust Your Eyes to New Glasses


1) Move your head up and down, looking at things through different parts of your lenses, and focusing on objects of varying distances away from you.


2) Look straight ahead and focus on objects far away.


3) Look through the bottom of your lenses to practice focusing on objects close to you.


4) Turn your head and point your nose towards the area that you're trying to focus.


Note, this is especially helpful for bifocal glasses that are vertically aligned.
