When you visit your eye doctor for your new prescription Tucson glasses, the last thing on your mind is that you don’t have the right eyeglass prescription. However, unfortunately, mistakes do happen. Although it’s not a common occurrence, there are times when you might end up with the wrong eyeglass prescription.
Your eye exam is the tool that is used to get the appropriate eyeglass prescription. Your eyeglasses are supposed to correct whatever refraction errors you have and should provide you with clear vision. If they don’t, then your prescription needs to be checked. There is an adjustment period when you get new eyeglasses. It could take anywhere from a few days to a month for your eyes to get used to your new Tucson glasses. If it’s been longer than that, you should contact your eye doctor. You most likely need a new eye exam to get your prescription recalculated. Although there is typically an adjustment period, it’s best to contact your optometrist right away if your eyeglasses are not working the way they should. You should contact your eye doctor immediately if you experience symptoms such as dizziness, headaches, blurred vision or any their worrisome symptom so you can be evaluated. There are several reasons why you could end up with the wrong eyeglass prescription. One possibility is a simple human error. One could incorrectly write down a symbol for refraction correction on the prescription. Another possible reason is that the eye exam wasn’t taken under the right circumstances. You should not take an eye exam if you are extremely tired or if you haven’t eaten. Fatigue and low blood sugar levels due to not eating can affect the exam and can produce inaccurate results.
