I have just got my new glasses and in the shop they seemed fine for the short time I had them on. I have since tried them once I got home and find that my vision seems blurred. Is this due to one of my lenses having a prism and will take time to get used to it? I did ask at the shop what would be the best way to wear them and was advised to just wear them like I did my old pair and should be ok.
Please can you advised as I have returned to my old pair, so that I may read and watch tv.

They may take a few days to get used, but if they do not feel comfortable after this time you must go back and ask them to check the glasses again and if they are ok they will probably suggest another test to see what the problem is. However if you actually can't see the tv or read in them compared to your old glasses, then there may well be something wrong. It is difficult to know if the prism is the problem as it depends on the strengh of the prism, and whether you have had it prescribed before.
