The goggles. I'm not sure if they do something.

I ordered new glasses online. I've been wearing them for 4 days and they still seem "off" a little. How long did it take you to get used to new glasses? Is something wrong with these? [more inside]

Can I go back to an optician and get a prescription for a different kind of lenses without another exam?

Yet another optician question. I got a prescription for reading/computer glasses, but I really need progressives (I think) because I can't see anything closeup without the glasses on. But I don't trust my optician. [more inside]

Transition lenses: no longer for dorks and serial killers?

Has anyone recently purchased "transitions" lenses (that go from clear to shaded) for your specs? I remember kids who had these in high school (this was 10+ years ago) and they always looked terrible- half-shaded indoors. I've had a few friends recommend them lately, though. [more inside]

New Contact Lenses

Has anyone transitioned from rigid gas permeable contact lenses to glasses? Did your prescription stay stable? Why do glasses make me feel cross eyed and fuzzy headed compared to RGPs--do I just have to wait it out and get used to them, or was the prescription wrong? Can I wear RGPs part of the time and glasses part of the time? [NB: I've never gotten good answers on these questions from my eye doc.]
