Adjusting to new glasses can take up to two weeks. If you have glasses for the first time, the best way to get used to them is to wear them as often as possible and as directed by the eye doctor. If you have had a change in prescription and the difference is significant, the adjustment period may be two weeks, or even a little longer.
