I had been using my first pair of differentials for around 6 weeks already, without any problems whatsoever, my eyes having adapted to it for close-up since day one so happily.
But just around the same time that I had planned to order my first pair of normalized, whenever I use my differentials I get ultra dizzy (up to the point of wanting to vomit, etc) and spending the rest of the day feeling sick and I’m wondering why this is happening now and not before? I have made the test a few days now and it is indeed the differentials causing this.
I am aware from reading the blog posts and other users, that the first differential pair is supposed to be used for approx. 6 weeks and later, when ordering the second differentials pair also order the first normalized. Is this what is happening? Is my dizziness the sign that it is time to reduce again?
The funny thing is, I have seen a small improvement of my centimetre measurements after starting to use them for the last 6 weeks (around 1-2cm). It is a small improvement but it made me so happy, and I also realized these days that for closeup work, I can see so much better without glasses than before the differentials. (I noticed this because as I felt dizzy, I stopped using the diffs and went no-glasses instead for closeup). I have avoided the computer except to post this.
My original prescription was OS -5.50 OD -5.50 cyl -1.25; and the diffs I have been using are OS -4 OD -4 cyl -1.25 til now.
So in conclusion, I’m a bit stumped with what to do. Is my dizziness a sign to pick my second differentials? Is it okay to buy my first normalized anyway?
I hope anybody can shed any light in this, and if there is any blog post I might have missed about this topic, I’d love to know. If anybody has also experienced this i’d love to know about it, as I’m curious.
