That’s a good question. I don’t know much about vertigo. But, I know with my glasses I cannot walk when I wear them becuase the floor is in the wrong place. I would guess if you tend to spin that kind of thing might be discombobulating. But, I don’t know if it could be a trigger.

@JLeslie I had that problem with one pair of glasses. The floor appeared to be at angle. I took them back and had them reglazed which sorted the problem out nicely.

You can always take them off. I also have a astigmatism and it took a few days to get used to wearing glasses. I felt really short and my horizontal field of vision was drastically reduced. This really fucked up my skateboarding. And the first day I had them I went to eat a corndog and shoved it on my nose. But you get used to it.

@Lightlyseared Really? Does reglazed mean had them made over again? These glasses are very old, but the last time I went to get my eyes checked, the new doctor came up with me needing the same script.

@JLeslie yeah they just remake them with the same prescription. Next time you’re at the optician you should mention the problems you’re having.

@Lightlyseared I did. The new guy said he could reduce the script, but the first guy gave me glasses half stregnth and I got a headache from them, so he made these.

Just FYI, Zenni Optical can fill darned near any prescription for a whole heck of a lot less that you will pay at your optician. All you need is a copy of your prescription (which your doctor is required by law to give you if you ask) and make sure they include the OD measurement (the distance between your pupils) as they sometimes leave that off but it is needed if you are ordering on-line where they can’t measure you in person.

Anyway, I bought a pair as a no big deal if I loose them backup pair and was happy enough with them that I haven’t bought glasses anywhere else since.
