So, I am in the high -3’s/close to -4 spherical in both eyes currently.
Without glasses in medium to low light, large edges or lines are fairly sharp/contrasty, with fainter ghosting or halo type doubling surrounding them sometimes. I have trained myself not to look at any secondary images, because if I do, it tends to get worse rapidly.
Smaller details at moderate distance (doorknobs, etc.) are totally indistinct and may have multiple somewhat clear reflections.
Very small details at distance (openings in electrical outlets for example) may be totally invisible in low light.
In good light, moderate sized details (e.g. bricks in a wall 30 feet away) are visible, but not distinct. Text is definitely not readable unless it’s very large.
At night, things get pretty bad. And lights have enlarged areas around them or look like multiple images (e.g. the moon). Sometimes the brain has trouble deciding between blur or multiple images.
Is this generally what you’d expect in the -3 to -4 range? Anyone else in the -3 to -4 range have vision that looks like this?
For those who have gone from say -5 to perfect or nearly so, am I in one of those major transition points in the journey of getting back to 20/20 based on what I described above? Or is every point an equally valid transition point and just as exciting as this one (meaning a lot to look forward to in the future at various points along the way)?
