Return to the optometrist or find a better one. Something isn't right and you need to be re-examined. If the prescription is wrong, that would be fixed for you, often at no charge. The idea of trying to fix this yourself is foolish. Your eyesight is very important, and you need to an office visit to a optometrist or a ophthalmologist.

I use 2 different strengths of bi focals. One for reading, and one for the desktop computer. My eye doctor recommended this, and it's worked out great.

I also notice the issue you describe, with variations from day to day. It's annoying but there seems to be little to be done about it except tolerate it. Forget about people jammin' unproven supplements down your throat.
I stand by my info in #3 above, I'm all for Prevention. Perhaps the OP does need to go back to her doc, we don't know. Talking with another group right now and a member is dealing with Glaucoma and I'm helping him with info I'm finding, the powerful antioxidant I've been taking for decades also works to reduce the affects of Glaucoma.

Oh, come on, Jam. Of course she needs to go back to whomever wrote the prescription and/or made the glasses. We do know that.

She can screw around with asking friends – or you – about prevention of whatever afterwards – if she so chooses.

I just re-read OP's post and we don't know. She has to make that decision. I talk primarily about Prevention and eye health in general and it works for me at 80. I believe we're here to offer suggestions and not argue and discredit what others offer.
