Spectacles Related Question

I have a power of -4.5 in both of my eyes, and I recently got a new frame made for me since my previous glasses were with -4.0 power. Now, the new specs don't feel as comfortable as my previous ones. I can't complain now, since I am the one who chose this new frame (I simply tried it on for a few minutes, it was good then). 

So, I was wondering if I could use my old specs at least when I work on my laptop so that discomfort doesn't distract me from my work. And then, I'll use my new specs whenever I'm off my laptop. Will this cause any problems for my eyes? Can't ask this to the eye specialist near me, he asks for 1K per appointment lol, and won't answer trivial questions. 

P.S.: Both the previous and new glasses are tinted, so screens generally don't affect my eyes as much (that's what those shopkeepers tell me when they ask me to choose those types of glasses)

1st u need to find whats the power as your eyesight power is static & cannot have dynamic powers like both 4 & 4.5

new spec try 1 day & if not comfortable then change.

eyes are precious so forget past mistakes & do whats best even it means starting from scratch & spending a lot because its worth it

Thats a noticeable difference because of increase in powers.

-0.5 is not less when it comes to power and that's why you are having issues. Your eyes will take approx 7-10 days to get adjusted. and that is why Lenskart and Titan both offers upto 2 weeks for replacement.

At this point, I won't suggest you to keep using old specs because in this way your eyes never gonnna get adjusted to new specs.

Try to get your eye tested for free from Lenskart or Titan and see if there are any difference in powers or cylindrical power or in Axis.

Sorry, I didn't mention it in the post
I got my eyes checked by a specialist here, and he told me that my power has increased from -4 to -4.5 in both eyes. That's why I went to a nearby shop to get new specs.

The glasses are fine, I am comfortable with the new power. The discomfort is caused by the frame. This new frame is very light, and slim, while my previous frame was very bulky, and I'm really used to this bulky design. 
The new frame is good too, but I generally find myself adjusting it a lot when I work, which was not the case with my old frame. Also, the new frame is made of metal, so I have this constant fear of not letting sweat touch its sides (which is next to impossible).

Arey bhai. Just ask the optician to adjust the frame for you. 🙂🙂🙂 

-0.5 is not too big of an issue. You ll face problems while reading small texts from a distance. 

Ask your doc before jumping into any conclusions. I ll still ask you to contact your optician for frame related adjustments.

How many days since you started using the new frame? I think you should use the new ones for atleast 10-12 days to get used to it.

you just mentioned power but there are some other things like axis etc too. Check up your eyes one more time at different eye care center and also check your lens actual specifications at any third party centre.

Should I ask my doctor to check my specs? Because he had checked my eyes, so he might know better
And yes, he wrote those axis and other things in his prescription, but idk much about those things
