    Unprecedented rare case of eye-correction intolerance.

    Sounds to me like a severe case of adaptation issues. You've gone over a decade needing correction and not having it, your brain is used to a certain way of seeing the world. You have now introduced correction and your brain is now struggling to accept the change of effort it has to do. You are asking it to do less, and that's throwing it.

    As for the other sensory issues, I've not heard that before but I would hazard that the change to your vision is throwing off the rest of your senses. I would suggest persevering for as long as you can. The more you use the specs/lenses, the easier it will be for your brain to adapt.

    drk in the post below is correct, if the full prescription is still throwing you off, build up to it bit at a time. It can ease the brain into accepting the lens.

      The only advice I have for you is to titrate. In concert with your doctor, start with a quarter diopter a month and build up. Use contacts.
