Blurry vision with New progressive lenses

Did you perform any surgery for the eyes?

I had lasik in 2013

Do you suffer from pre-existing illnesses in the eye?
Do you suffer from any diseases in the body?

Low level diabetes

Do you use any eye drops?

Moisturizing eye drops

Do you wear Contact lenses or Eyeglasses?

Just got new prescription glasses for reading and working on computers





I have worked with microscopes for many years. In order to be able to see a clear image, each eye has to be in focus and then get used to both eyes using the microscope.

These new glasses give me clear vision in the left eye but the right eye is blurry from the start. There's no way I'll ever get clear stereoscopic vision if one eye starts out blurry.

The optometrist used every big word he could think of to explain that one eye will be blurry. But as a prescription for that eye it must first give me clear vision then there may be some work to get the eyes to work together.




Thanks for your Question

Sometimes you might need 2-3 weeks to adjust to these new lenses. This is common issue for people who use progressive lenses for the first time.

In case you didn't feel any improvement in your condition and your vision still blurry in the right eye, you should go back to your optometrist who can make slight adjustment and change to a different design of the lens.

Sometimes the position of the distance or near correction in the lens is wrong and cause blurry vision and your optometrist should be able to verify that.
