I just got new contacts, and I suddenly jumped from a -1.00 in my left eye and -2.25 in my right to -2.75 in both. These new ones are giving
me a terrible headache, and I have a feeling it's because the prescription is too strong in my left. Is this possible?

don't wait just go to another doctor and let him exam your eyes again.

I think they made a mistake.

I would stop wearing your contacts for a few days and then try again and see if you're still having the same problems. Give yourself a few more days to get adjusted to the new prescription. If they're still bothering you, then go to your eyedoctor and ask about it.

BTW, I love A Streetcar Named Desire, too!

It is definately possible.
Eye doctors do make mistakes, so your prescription may be too strong. Especially since thats such a big jump for your left eye! If you call them, they will probably tell you to wait it out for at least a week before they change it, but if its been a few days and its still giving you bad headaches call your doc and go get checked again.

Whenever you're vision changes and you get new glasses/contacts, they usually seem a lot stronger than they should be. I've gone through the same thing every time my prescription changes. In a few days your eyes will have adjusted to perfect vision again and you won't be dizzy or give you a headache. The dizzyness is perfectly normal, and the headache is most likely because you have been reading. After getting new prescriptions i always get headaches while reading. Try taking some Motrin and moving farther away from what you're reading. If things aren't any better in a few days, call in to the eye doctor. Good luck!

This is possible, but have your doctor check to be sure the contacts you were given are the right prescription...that happened to me once.

But in general, yes your symptoms are normal for any changes in prescription, likewise if your contact brand is different that what you're used to.

Hello, I am a Certified Ophthalmic Tech.

Many times when we have a big change in prescription it can feel very weird. Give it a few days and see if you get used to it. Our eyes get used to seeing blurry and need time to adjust. If the feeling doesn go away after 2 weeks then schedule a follow up with your doctor to have it checked.

The lenses you used to have were a -1.00. With that, you were able to move the focal point of your eye from 1 meter to optical infinity or about 20 feet. What are the chances that your eyes got twice as powerful since you last got that Rx? Unless you are a diabetic and had a myopic shift by a very high glucose level, you probably just tried to 'help' too much during your exam.

Now you have new lenses which would take it from almost a third of a meter in front of you (about a foot), and moved that focal point out to infinity.

If you were 'relaxed' when your eye exam was performed, you'd probably be wearing almost a -1.00, still. But if you were a bit nervous and trying to help and not relaxing, you probably put some power in your focus, making it so your Rx came out a lot higher. So now you've got too much relaxing power in your lenses, and you've become far sighted. And farsighted people have to work, bend their lens inside their eye, to see at distance. And for you, well....headache. Eye strain, eye pain, tearing, nose running, headache, and did I mention headache?

So these lenses are causing you to overcompensate by trying to plug in enough power to oppose that difference and you are getting fatigued very quickly.

You might take them back, talk to the doc. If he gets all defensive and can't see the physiology of this (which is REALLY a common problem), you should politely say good bye and go somewhere else. Most eye professionals know about this type of over compensation. Sometimes though, we don't take the extra time to blur one out and relax that accommodation, and so over Rx. It's not all that uncommon.

A too strong prescription is a good possibility for your dizziness. That happened to me when I tried to wear my "backup glasses" prescription from like 10 years ago...they were -9.75 in both eyes and my most recent glasses prescription was -8.25 and -7.75. Headaches, dizziness, felt like my feet were coming out of my neck...that went away as soon as I got my new glasses.

Contact your eye doctor tomorrow morning...tell them the problem you are having. It is quite possible that the contacts are the wrong prescription, or were possibly ordered from your glasses prescription rather than the contact prescription (they are two different strengths with glasses being higher numbers).

Good luck!
