What Can You Do To Adjust To Your New Glasses


1. Build Up Your Wear Time

This is by the far best piece of advice when getting a new pair of glasses. The visual system needs time to adjust to the technology, frame, and lenses. I recommend the following wear times to build up your tolerance:

Day 1: At least 15 minutes, but no more than 2 hours

Day 2-7: Build up to 30 minutes – 1 hour from the previous day, no more than 8 hours

Day 7+: Should be able to wear the lenses comfortable full day or whenever you are on a device

Important note: if you are prone to migraines, dizziness, or vertigo take it even slower.


2. Consider Changing Frames & Lens

If you realize that you purchased the wrong style lens for your face/prescription, getting in the right frame can make all the difference. If you’ve given yourself ample time to adjust and still feel ‘off’ consider a frame switch.

Additionally, if you originally picked the Amber lens with the 65% blue light blocking technology, consider going to the clear lens that has 35% protection. Once you adjust to this lens, you can try to increase the blue light blocking technology.


3. Get Your Prescription Checked

Lastly, for those that have prescriptions to see distance/near or both, make sure you are in the most updated prescription possible. If you’ve done all the above and you still can’t adjust, a visit to the eye doctor may be necessary to recheck the prescription. The real world is very different from a dark room looking at a white screen, so adjustments to glasses prescription, although uncommon, may be necessary.

At the end of the day, taking it slow and adjusting to your new glasses is normal. Before you know it you’ll be able to wear your new GUNNAR glasses comfortably.
