I ran into this thing and was wondering, if someone had an Idea how to proceed:
When I started my journey here, I was wearing following prescription:
Left: -0,25 sph / -3,75 cyl (57°)
Right: -0,25 sph / -3,50 cyl (128°)
I got myself a pair of differential glasses for close up, which I’ve been wearing for about 4 weeks now. It has this presiction:
Left: -0,25 sph / -3,25 cyl (57°)
Right: -0,25 sph / -3,00 cyl (128°)
Now, 4 weeks later I encountered something weird: I was looking at my snellen chart and for some reason closed my right eye. For my left eye then, text at the chart was slightly blurry. Then I tilted my head to the right and: the text cleared up! So apparenty, my axis number had changed (in my right eye, there was no such effect).
So I was worried that my axis number was off too much now and would prevent me from further progress. I then did some measurements with my snellen chart and my test lens kit and found out:
- My left eye can now see the 20/20 line well at -0,25 sph / -2,75 cyl (55°)!!! which I feel is a massive improvement!
- my right eye seems not to have improved at all. It can see the 20/20 line only at around the starting presicription with -3,50
Since with my current prescription my left eye sees a bit blurry because the axis number is off, I’m a bit worried that my right eye might be overcompensating for the blur in the left eye and therefore doesn’t improve or might get worse.
Now, I want to order a new pair of glasses, so my left eye doesnt have to deal with the blur all the time. However, I want to give my right eye (which seems to be the “non-dominant-eye”) a chance to adapt to the new reduced prescrition before I reduce even further.
So I was wondering: should I just get the same prescrption and just change the axis number for the left eye (which is now around 45° according to my test lens kit)? That would mean that my left eye would now be over corrected for close up (as it can see 20/20 at -2,75) while my right eye hasn’t adapted to the change yet…
Or should I take the chance and reduce my left eye for my differentials a bit more, since It has already improved by -1,00 cyl and is now better that the right one (which was the other way around in the first place!)? Of course, I would be making sure that the difference between the two eyes doesn’t become too big…
I would love to hear from you!
