Is it normal to get headaches when wearing new glasses?
In the previous article, we discussed “Does wearing sunglasses potentially harm our eyes in the long run?”. In this article, let’s talk about “Is it normal to get headaches when wearing new glasses?”.
Myopia who wears glasses for a long time will occasionally feel dizzy after putting on a new pair of glasses. After a period of time, the discomfort will gradually ease. Why is this?
Optometry glasses are not professional
Some people will not only experience dizziness when they change their glasses but also have headaches, nausea, vomiting, inattention, neurasthenia, and other symptoms from time to time. And some people even deepen myopia. This is most likely due to unqualified glasses and inaccurate optometry. In short, this eye discomfort is caused by the inconsistency between the power of the glasses and the actual condition of the eyes. Optometry before filling a prescription is a very important step. In addition to checking myopia and astigmatism, it is also necessary to check for eye disease, binocular vision balance, monocular ability, primary vision discrimination, interpupillary distance, etc. In this way, suitable glasses can be fitted according to the overall situation of the person's eyes. The spectacles must also match the parameters of vertex, interpupillary distance, cylindrical lens axis position, etc. Otherwise, it will directly affect the effect of correcting vision, cause the user's visual fatigue, and increase the emphasis on power loss.
Need to re-adapt to new glasses
When the glasses were damaged, the glasses were not replaced in time. As a result, the nearsighted person wears old glasses and continues to look at things. The old glasses have 'remodeled' the eyes in the long-term process, and the eyes have adapted to the old glasses. Therefore, even if the power of the new glasses is the same as that of the old glasses, the new lenses will feel brighter. In this case, eyes produce uncomfortable symptoms. It is recommended to use the new glasses early the next morning. After a night's rest, the eyes will be easier to adapt to the new glasses. After a few days of continuous wearing, the dizziness symptoms will disappear.
Different styles of glasses
If the style of new glasses is different from the old glasses, the angles of the glasses are also different. So the new glasses will cause visual differences. The symptoms of dizziness after wearing the new glasses will occur after a short period of time. If you adapt, you should be able to return to normal.
In order to avoid discomfort in wearing glasses due to inaccurate optometry, experts suggest that myopia should choose a professional eye hospital for medical optometry. When the glasses are damaged, they should be replaced in time to avoid injury to the eyes.
