Glasses, computer screen and Dizziness

Posted , 2 users are following.

I've just got new prescription glasses about 2 months back. Since then I have spent long hours sitting and staring at my laptop for hpurs and hours. Now I keep fewling lightheaded theough out the day. It's been going on for 1 week.

Is it possible for minus to increase so fast after changing my glasses lenses?

    Go back to the opticians.

    Mine have, on occassions muddled the prescription causing issues including headaches, blurred vision etc.

    If in doubt, go see another also, as 2 conflicting opinions show that mistakes may have been made with the examinations.

    Best of luck

      I wore my new glasses and everything was alright until about 1 week ago. So I was wondering if it's possible for eye sight to get worse in a short period of 2 months?

      Oh, i get you.

      Yes, it is possible, particularly if you are at an age where your body is rapidly changing.

      Go back and get a retest all the same as it is possible for prescriptions to change overnight so to speak.

      Hope it is sorted x

    I've had to go back for a prescription change three times for one pair. The last one a different person did the test over and said the first one made a mistake. No charge to me to replace.

      The thing is, I wore my new glasses and everything was ok for about 3 weeks. But then I started feeling unbalanced. I did use my laptop a lot. But I've reduced screen time and change to new prescription with less power. But I still feel unvalanced and my legs feel weak. So I'm not sure anympre if the problem is my vision.
