Hi fellow Kittehs!
So, this is a contac lense topic
I started at -5 /-5,25 with -0,75cyl and am wearing plus lenses as differentials. The great thing about it: All I need to do is reduce my contacts, and those plus lenses stay the same. I just have a pair sitting at work and one at home (and a cheap one with me all times) - very easy, so far.
As my diiopters drop and drop, this is going to change! Let’s say I wear +1,5 as differentials. At one point, my +1,5 will not give me any blur challenge anymore. Say I reduce my normalized to -2,5, plus 1,5 will make a net -1, which is probably not enough challenge anymore.
Question to all of you ahead of me: In consequence, while my normalized will go down, my plus lenses will go down as well, right?
So, lets assume I had great challenge at -2,75 with +1,5 lenses and notice that I miss close up challenge after reducing to -2,5 with +1,5 lenses, I will instead use -2,5 with +1,25, maybe even +1 lenses - is that correct?
Hod did you contact lense wearing, now low myopes do it?
Also, even though I hate to wear glasses, I am considering to wean off those contacts. I don’t want to miss them in my free time, but at work, I’m wearing those plus lenses anyways, staring at that screen. Plus, even though they feel really ok and I have no dry eyes or any issues, I do notice now, due to endmyopia awareness, that sometimes, they do glue to my eyes a bit. So a little less time with contacts while staring at the screen will not hurt…
My plan: I’m gonna get differentials and normalized for work. I’ll put in my contacts in the morgning, cycle to work (because cycling with glasses SUUUUCKS!), change to glasses and maybe have a second pair of contacts at work, so they have enough time to clean. I’ll survive lunch break with glasses and switch back to contacts after work.
How did/do you reduce your contac lense use?
Also, low myopia. Any contact wearing low myopes here?
When do you wear those contacts?
Cheers to all,
