Hi Fellow EM’ers! I have high myopia and am getting started on my EM journey, which I plan to do with contacts and plus lenses for close-up work (i.e., staring at a computer for work). Unfortunately, I don’t do well with glasses.
I have a question that I haven’t been able to find the answer to yet on the EM blog, FB page, Jake’s videos, forum, etc. I apologize in advance for asking, if it’s already answered somewhere.
First, my Rx:
Contacts: -9.50R (distance), -9.00L (close-up)
My optometrist has been intentionally fitting my left eye at a lower strength to do the monovision thing for close-up. Without any correction, my left and right eyes are pretty even.
My question: Can AF be achieved with my monovision contacts? If not, then I’ll likely bump up the left diopter to get -9.50 in both eyes, and then wear plus lenses for close-up.
I’d love to hear your thoughts. Thanks!
