It took me about three weeks to get used to my progressives, and about three months until I had full field-of-vision. Most of the lens isn't corrective. It's just an hour-glass figure in the middle.

But I can't imagine doing that without correcting my astigmatism, which is pretty advanced. I am able to see without my glasses, but my balance and depth perception are kaput. I don't seem to enjoy much peripheral vision without the glasses either. So while I can get around and do basic activities of living (I could drive without, but am legally unable to do so, for instance; I could also chop veggies but I think that would be foolish), I find myself looking downward to keep out all the astigmatic "static." And then my mood starts going into the toilet.

 
Thanks. It kinda ended up a non issue as the doc suggested I go without the astigmatism correction.

I've been struggling with my vision and eyeglasses for the last few years. I recently tried progressive lenses again after failing to adjust to them a couple of years ago. Same story this time. Immediate vertigo and nausea. I think I'm going to try lined bifocals.

I also have a slight astigmatism in each eye. I did not include this correction in the lenses that I had to reject. I've been trying to take small steps because my brain doesn't seem to like glasses. The optician is recommending that I add the astigmatism correction to the new lined bifocal set. I've been concerned that my brain is accustomed to processing two different images into one, and that giving it the same image (via astigmatism correction) might make it more difficult to do the things I usually do without glasses, like drive, ride my bike, windsurf, hike, etc. 

So my question is:

For those of you who have astigmatism correction in your lenses, and who see well enough to also function doing some things without glasses, how does that work for you? Does your brain make the adjustment easily, or does this correction make it more difficult to function without your glasses?

Thanks.

  I really did come very close to making a post yesterday about how I thought two full pages of posts might be a new record for a spammer.  I had it in the editor and was about to hit submit when I thought no, that's just asking for it and I canceled it.  It didn't matter.  The record was broken this morning anyway.  Do think if he comes back to check his work tomorrow do you think we'll end up with four pages of it?
