How Long Does It Take For The New Glasses To Adapt?

- Aug 09, 2019-

The new pair of glasses, and the eyes have a one-week adaptation period, just like the new shoes and feet have a running-in period. In particular, the visual process of the eye is not only the physical function of the eye refraction, but also the psychological factors involved. A common example: some people's old glasses frames have been deformed, the heights of the two sides are different, and the corrected visual acuity is only 0.6. The newly equipped glasses correct the visual acuity of 1.0 and are comfortable to wear. But he always feels that the new glasses are not as comfortable as the old ones, especially those with large changes in temperament or astigmatism, and older people are more obvious. What is the reason for this?


Because people's acceptance of eyeglass correction is not only the physical factors of the degree and uncertainty of the lens, but also the participation of psychological factors. Eyes have become accustomed to unevenness and old glasses, accustomed to unclear images. Now, once it is corrected, it is clear, but the eyes always feel a little dizzy, a little swaying, but they will feel uncomfortable.


But as long as the optometry and processing are correct, after a week or more of adaptation, the psychological will slowly accept, you will appreciate the brightness brought by the new glasses. If you have been adjusting for more than 1 week, your child's eyes still feel uncomfortable. Go to the optical shop to check whether the optometry is correct, whether the lens degree and the axial position are processed correctly. If the gap is too large, you need to reconfigure.
