Hi doctor,

I recently had an eye exam and was able to see clearly by the time the doctor was done with my exam. I ordered the glasses and they just arrived yesterday. I out them on and it is as if I am not wearing glasses because with the glasses or without the glasses everything is blurry. I told them that and was told I have to wait for seven days for my eyes to adjust. How do I do that when I cannot read without straining my eyes either way?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As you told your vision was fine with the glasses or lenses your doctor uses during eye exam and now you are having trouble with your glasses then most probably you need to recheck your glasses if they are dispensed according to your prescription or is there any error. Sometimes a minor error in dispensing cause much trouble especially if you having cylindrical number or axis. I think your glasses are not according to your prescription or it gets mixed with someone else. So first go and verify your glasses number and match with your glasses prescription.
