I recently got a "mild" correction for glasses that correct my left eye to "normal". The right lense is just clear glass. The main reason I got them was because I see two superposed images of lights (street lights, moon etc.) at night from my left eye and wanted that checked out. The Dr. said that this was likely from small cataracts (in both eyes) amplifying the defect in the left - which was not so noticeable before the cataract formation.
But when I put them on, it seems like by brain does not know what to do for a while, and lags behind on focusing when I switch from looking at things at difference distances. It seems like the glasses are putting more stress on my eye than they are helping. In other words, it seems more like I have two eyes working separately than a pair of eyes working together.
The glasses I got are polarized sun glasses so I only wear them when outside.
So my questions are: will this eventually go away? And, if so, will it screw up my eyes when I take the glasses off?
Incidentally, I bought a pair of Costa 580p's at a VA concession yesterday at a much cheaper price than on the internet, and can see much more clearly at normal distances than through the prescription polarized sunglasses. I think this is because they allow more light in- even though they appear to be darker than the others.
I can see small things at great distances more clearly with the prescription glasses, however.
I would like to get some 580 glass Costa's but would like to get them with the presecription if : a) that is the correct prescription and b) if my brain is not so stubborn it won't adapt to the prescription and let my eyes work together again.
Thanks for any insight.
