Finally, before freshman year I got contacts and wore those for many, many years and still do today when doing any physical activities, although I still have a fetish for glasses. I loved my annual exams knowing I would get a stronger prescription and thicker glasses. I longed for for eyes to get more nearsighted and necessitate Coke bottle lenses but that did not happen.
Then came the experiments with over correction and I quickly found out I can tolerate quite a bit of minus and still see just fine.
All the best Lou So Cal , Just ordered a new pair of glasses because we needed to use our FSA $ before we lost it.
I'm excited about these new glasses because they are fun and colorful.
NNVisitor , New Glasses Trouble The distortion is caused by three things.
The power of the glasses, your astigmatism correction and because the front of the lens is flat instead of curved the distortion is much worse.
They will be fitted with poly lenses so I hope they look okay with the crystal frames. https://moscot.com/shop/lemtosh Glasses Lover , Sarah, my actual prescription is: OD: -4.25 -0.25 109 OS: -4.75 -0.50 171 My glasses I've worn for the past couple years: OD: -5.00 -0.25 109 OS: -5.75 -0.50 171 And now..latest that I received from Firmoo a couple weeks ago are: OD: -6.50 -0.25 109 OS: -7.00 -0.50 171 1.00 read Sarah , Glasseslover my real Rx ia L -4.75 0.75 85 R -5 -0.25 15.

New Glasses Success , Cactus Jack, My new prescription is -10.00, -1.50 090, 10, out, 11 up; and -10.25, -2.75, 005, 10, out, 11 down for the distance glasses. Cactus Jack , New Glasses Trouble, I think you should change your nickname. I told the doctor about my double vision and how I could not see most of the close chart, and I told the doctor about how sometimes the words on my page go in and out od focus or seem to switch up.
For the reading glasses it is -8.50, -1.50, 090, 10, out, 13 up; and -8.75, -2.75, 005, 10, out, 13 down. I just got the new glasses, but will keep you guys in the loop on how theh end up workibg for me and my eyes.
Even though I wanted to so bad I was reluctant to wear them outside of the house.
I continued to struggle with reading the blackboard at school but did finally get another exam and needed a stronger prescription. This went on for another couple years and in between wearings I found myself squinting heavily to see.
I'm able to tolerate this just fine and thinking about bumping my next script to: OD: -7.50 -0.25 109 OS: -8.00 -0.50 171 1.50 read What is everyone's thoughts? New Glasses Trouble , Hey, I'm back with new glasses, and these ones are not only helping me see well in the distance, but now they hell me see only one image and help me see close up.
