If you had a new pair of glasses with/after an eye test and felt the new glasses were not what you needed, they make you giddy/seasick, give you issues when walking, etc, would you return to the same opticians or try a different opticians?

as a 66 year old diabetic i get free eye tests, i have the prescription for the new glasses..

thanks

ive had them over a week and they arent settling in
Dont worry, be happy

    I went back to the same optician and the lenses were changed at no extra cost.

    How big is the change in prescription?
    First stop is back to the dispensing opticians to see what's wrong.

    Do the old glasses still work?

    If you go back to the same opticians they should recheck the dispense and retest if need be at no extra cost. 
    If you go to a different opticians you would have to pay for the eye test.
