working thru this....
We don't know your age, so that might be a factor with your glasses.
Its going to take about a week or two for you to get acclimated to glasses. Maybe, you could wear them for truncated periods in the beginning, and wear them longer as you time passes.
yeah thats basically what i have been doing - just wearing them for sort 15, 20 mins as i going about my usuals...then taking them off. do you think its a good idea to go back to the opto and ask for a lower lens grade just while i get used to them...get say a 4...then an 8, work my way up to the necessary 14 - which as alchem noted, is a pretty massive lens as a first up. cost not really a concern
but I don't know what the qualifications of optometrists in Vietnam are like- do they need to go to school for that in Vietnam?
judging by this guy, Id say no, but really couldnt be sure. hard to figure anything out in this country, and you can always pay off a teacher if you want a diploma.
In your special case, you might want to wait till you return to Australlia or America for your special needs
thats basically the plan - just want something to tide me over, quite possible I wont be back in Australia til Christmas at best.
There's a lot of different materials out there which has have different thicknesses and weights. The thinner and lighter ones are more expensive, and it might be more important to get the right prescription. These lens can be a big difference.
any you can recommend?
he needed special hard contact lens since it helped control the growth. The problem is that they're really hard to prescribe, and most optometrists are reluctant to do them. You might try looking for a specialist in that who might be able to give you a better or maybe even more honest answer.
yeah thats basically what I have been through in the past - and both the Australian and American doctor said "too tricky, too messy, if it not killing you, then live with it" - and I have til now when i thought maybe a good time to jump to marginal improvement of glasses.
