Because of how they’re designed, there’s an adaptation period in learning to wear your progressive lenses. We recommend that you get in the habit of turning your head toward the object of focus instead of simply moving your eyes. For example, if you see a pedestrian about to cross the street, turn your head toward the person instead of just shifting your eyes. Otherwise you’ll be looking through the blurred edges of the progressive.
For new wearers, get used to your new lenses gradually by increasing how much time you wear them over the first few days. Try not to switch between different glasses, since this will lengthen your period of adaptation. Remember that you’ll need to turn your head and move your eyes in order to find the “sweet spot” for the activity that you’re focusing on.
For experienced wearers, a new pair progressives – even in the same prescription – can still have a slight adaptation period. This is because progressive glasses designs can vary based on manufacturer. For example, some people are more sensitive to viewing through multiple areas in a small lens, so switching to frames with a larger lens size can provide greater comfort and ease in adaptation.
While most users have great success with wearing progressives, they aren’t for everybody. If you’re still having trouble adapting after a couple of weeks, with headaches or feeling off- balance, contact your eye doctor to check your prescription and lens placement.
