Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I got new glasses, I can see better and clearer than ever. Its great!
Except for the headaches.
According to my doctor, I have a particularly strong prescription in the way of my eyes having such a huge variance between them. Something about my right eye being much weaker and having astigmatism while the left eye is noticeably better. The only thing is after wearing the glasses almost all the time for the past 4 days I've been experiencing progressively stronger and stronger pain around my eyes. I had my prescription done by a guy (who had only been doing eye care pretty recently, maybe around a year or so) at Pearl Vision and then found a guy down the street that has DECADES of experience in glasses. I've been talking to the guy that did my glasses but I don't exactly feel like I'm getting my questions answered terribly well about the eye strain. He is recommending I go to some therapist for a consultation so I can find out if I need to do any kind of exercises with my eyes, which is OK I guess, but I really just want my head to stop hurting after wearing the damn things.
So my question, oh Arcadian Hivemind, is this kind of thing normal for someone who has never worn glasses? Is this akin to muscle fatigue and I just need to let my eyes strengthen to the point that it doesn't hurt so much? How cut and dry is the process of the prescription? Is it something that can be screwed up easily?
