Anyone in eye care or knowlegable about contacts vs. glasses?
A couple of weeks ago I got my eyes examined and ordered new contacts and new glasses. Every time I put my glasses on, I get dizzy and then have a headache within an hour. The contacts seem fine. The doctor says it's not unusual to have an adjustment period when you first put on glasses, and that it's not unusual to have a different glasses prescription. I've always been able to take out my contacts at night, put on my glasses, and not have any kind of adjustment period. My eyeglasses prescription has always been very close to my contacts prescription, last time my contacts were both -4.25, and my glasses were -4.50 (left) & -4.75 (right).
My contacts this time are:
left eye -4.75
right eye measured at -4.75 but with an astigmatism correction the prescription is -4.50
My glasses this time are:
left eye -5.25
right eye -4.50
This just seems really off. They are going in opposite directions! My insurance company is being a PITA and the doctor isn't being helpful and I'm wondering if this is something to press or if it might be all in my head.
