brvideo My story is a bit different. An optometrist prescribed me a pair of prismatic lenses and asked me to wear them all the time for close-up work for 10-15 days before going in again for a review. I immediately developed weird symptoms, i.e., vertigo and strong neck tension. On day 3 I gave up, since the pain had spread to elbows, wrists and the right ankle. In addition, my eyes had started burning. On day 4 I went to see a behavioral optometrist. He told me to not wear those glasses anymore and that I was correct. It makes absolutely no sense to push through. One cannot and should not adjust to this sort of pain and discomfort. Continuing will make it worse, not better. He prescribed me another pair of lenses with a bit of magnification for close-up work, aiming at tuning my Accommodative Convergence/Accommodation (AC/A) Ratio. The lenses are multifocal with a lower magnification in the upper part for when I use a monitor compared to when I use my laptop. He also added a blue tint. Unfortunately, I have not found any benefit from those glasses either but at least they did not cause any pain. Next, I saw two orthoptists who confirmed the diagnosis of esophoria - although they both objected I do not exhibit convergence excess as the first optometrist found. They gave me exercises that aim at improving my degree of divergence. I have become a great "converger", better than the average person, but I struggle diverging and I can clearly see that from how tricky the divergence exercises are with respect to the convergence ones. From now onwards, I will be concentrating on divergence exercises.
I recommend you see an orthoptist. Any should be specialized in binocular vision. Both orthoptists I visited said that most optometrists, except behavioral ones, do not understand binocular vision. In addition they sell glasses, so you will most likely get glasses even if they are not necessary. If you have some heterophoria that is curable by means of exercises, that is what you should be doing. Walking with crutches alone won't heal you. Of course, there are cases in which glasses should be used in addition to doing exercises.
One final comment about the "adjustment" process.
