I don't know
The only thing I can think of would be some kind of problem adjusting your focus so you were getting distracted by reflections off the front/back of the lenses (happens to me sometimes when I'm tired). Then again, I'm not an optician. I'm assuming you've got the right strength specs and no undiagnosed astigmatism or nystagmus or anything.
I've walked myself to theatre before, they just got me to take my glasses off once I was on the trolley and kept them handy so I could have them back in Recovery.
You can test if orange lenses make a difference to you by having a hunt on eBay for British Army laser goggles (they look like this
.) They used to be issued for exercise use but when they changed the type of laser rangefinder they used they offloaded the lot to surplus dealers, who now can't get rid of them
They're usually only a fiver, might give you an idea if that sort of thing would help without wasting too much energy on it. Wearing them as sunglasses I found they increased contrast a lot and made it easier to see in low light - but then all orange lenses do that! There's definitely scope for fleecing the vulnerable with this sort of thing so keep an eye out for the dodgy science.
