I just got my first pair of reading glasses (the age and all).I am wearing glasses to see far objects (short sighted for driving, TV, and such).As soon as I put on my new reading glasses I noticed that my long distance vision improved.I still see better with the long distance glasses (-3.5) but wearing the short distance reading glasses (+1.5) I see better far away objects that without glasses.The person selling me the glasses did not know why (I never had a chance to ask the optometrist).Does it happen to all of your short and long sighted?Do you know why?Thanks Yair (with two pairs of glasses)
The optometris gave me the prescription for the glasses.I could not ask him as he is not involved in handing them over.
The short distance glasses may correct astigmatism.
I guess what happened that the pain was from the cornea was being reformed, forced by the hard contact. This was before they ever had cornea curvature correction.

This was before they ever had cornea curvature correction.There are contact "lenses" which are designed to reshape the cornea ...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OrthokeratologyBut unlike normal contact lenses they are worn when asleep and removed when awake.The effect is temporary: if the "lenses" are not worn every night the correction wears off.
