New glasses

(Whiny non-book post coming up. You've been warned.)


I got a new pair of glasses yesterday. I don't deal with new glasses very well. I'm at that point in the adjustment process where I want to go home, cry, and put my old glasses back on. 1) Something needs to be adjusted in my new frames, but I'm not exactly sure what. 2) The anti-glare is not working quite the way it should at the edges of the lens.


As far as #2 goes, I asked about that, and it turns out they used a different brand of anti-glare than last time, without telling me. "You shouldn't have noticed, though, because they're basically the same." Well, I did. I am the Princess and the Pea of glasses. I'd like to abdicate, please. ::sob::
