Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Hi there. If this has begun only after changing your glasses, then the complaint is related to those. Sometimes when the prescription changes, it takes a while to get used to them. Try them out for a week and if there is no improvement, you may have to confirm the spectacle prescription with your optician as well as whether the number in the prescription and the glasses match. If everything matches to begin with, almost all patients are fine after a week.
