I'm a liiiiitle bit worried if they detected my eyesight correctly because it feels... odd to be looking at close objects, but my brain might be *very* used to seeing things wrong or maybe my eyes are bad at focusing after all this time, so I should probably give it time
@Gargron you totally should. it will be weird for like a day or two
@ryanlittlefield Thank you dad
@Gargron yw my son, gargron my son
@ryanlittlefield they call me guacamole now
@Gargron does that make me, your father, avocadargron?
@Gargron yes give it a bit of time
@gargron I tried taking my new glasses back the day after I got them. They told me to keep them on for the next couple of days and it'll be OK. They were right.
@Gargron Been there too, it goes away after a few days.
@Gargron I guess the more short-sighted you are, the more the glasses that correct for it are going to destroy your vision for close objects.
I can't see a damn thing up close with my glasses on, I have to take them off if I want to.
@Gargron Abwarten. Die Gewöhnung dauert etwas. :)
@Gargron that effect is usually worse if you have varifocal lenses. Took me about 6 months to get used to mine without feeling dizzy.
@Gargron The focus points on new glasses could be slightly different than your old glasses, and that can make a big difference in your brain processing info from new glasses.
@Gargron Yeah, give it a while. Even being in and out of contact lenses can do this to me for a bit.
@Gargron your eyes are lying to you. Do not trust them. Promptly remove.
@Gargron I find it takes 3 days to a week to get used to new glasses. That said I am short-sighted and prefer to eg work (I draw and write as a freelancer rn) without my glasses as I find it strains my eyes unnecessarily (they're a good prescription and I always wear them when going out).
@Gargron Getting used to new glasses is always weird.
@Gargron usually takes a day or two before you'll adjust
@Gargron just be sure to keep looking into the far distance once in a while, assuming you stare at a screen a lot. It will help you adjust quicker
@Gargron when I got my new glasses, they felt weird because there's a lot more chromatic aberration. Felt like I was looking through the lens of a DSLR
