Give it time

Be patient while you allow your eyes to get used to the new lenses, as it might take a few days or even a couple of weeks to fully adapt. Initially, you might experience some slight distortion or difficulty finding the right focus zones, but don't worry—this is normal! Stick with it, and your brain will gradually adjust to the new visual experience.

Wear your glasses consistently

Wear your glasses consistently

For the first few days, try wearing your new glasses for shorter periods, and then gradually increase that amount of time as you become more comfortable. The more you wear your progressive lenses, the faster you'll adapt. Avoid frequently switching back and forth between your old glasses (if you have any) and your new ones, as this can hinder your brain's adjustment process.

Be aware of peripheral distortion

Progressive lenses have some inherent distortion in the periphery. Be mindful of this while navigating your surroundings. Remember to move your head—not just your eyes—as if you’re pointing your nose at the object you’d like to focus on.

Tilt your head to find the right focus zone

While using progressive lenses, remember to move your head slightly to find the appropriate zone for different activities. Tilting your head a bit up or down can help you find the right zone for different tasks like reading or looking at a computer screen.
