I would like to hear your opinion, whether I am thinking correctly:
my situation is as follows: I’ve been wearing glasses since I was about 13 years old. My eyesight got worse very quickly, when I was about 18 it was: left -5.25/right -6.25. (My glasses were: left -5/right -6,) Then my eyesight didn’t change for about 15 years.
Two years ago, due to a job change that involved many hours in front of a computer my eyesight got worse: left eye -6/right eye -7. My eye doctor prescribed new glasses: left -5,5/right -6,25, as you see, my left eye was very underprescribed. One year passed and my left eye is now the same -6, but my right eye is now -7,75.
I found out about endmyopia in the spring, joined the course and started to realize that something is wrong with my glasses, my right eye shouldn’t be so underprescribed. I went to my eye doctor with the suggestion to increase the diopters in the glasses for my right eye. The doctor prescribed me new glasses: left -5,75/right -6,75 (because apparently you don’t put more than one diopter difference between the eyes in glasses).
I am not happy with that, because my right eye would still be very underprescribed and I fear that it’s just gotten lazy and will keep that way (apart from myopia my eyes are checked and are healthy). So, I am thinking about going to a different eye doctor and getting a prescription that is more like – left -5,75 diopters, right -7,5 diopters, so that my right eye also gets to see sharp and then, using endmyopia method, I can reduce the diopters. Am I thinking correctly? Or would it be enough, if I corrected right eye just to -6,75 diopters, as my eye doctor suggested?
I’ve finished the course and searched the forum but would really appreciate your opinion on this.
