So I’m trying to begin my journey with eye sight improvement, but I’m struggling with headaches since finally get the glasses I ordered off EyeBuyDirect.
To preface this, I am normally a full time contacts wearer, and only use glasses at night to see if I need to in the middle of the night. My contacts prescription is for both eyes -6.50 BC 8.6 DIA 14.2. The glasses prescribed to me on the same day is OD -6.50 CYL -1.00 axis x167 and OS -7.00 CYL 0.50 axis x175.
When ordering new glasses for the eye improvement I felt it didn’t make sense to have each eye different on my glasses considering my eyes are used to my contacts having the same prescription in both eyes, so the prescription I chose was distance glasses -7.00 CYL -0.50 axis x175 for both eyes. I chose for close up glasses -5.75 CYL -0.50 axis x175 for both eyes. I’m a little frustrated because I feel like the blur horizon is just right for both, but I’m getting headaches.
I was told by my optometrist that I don’t have an astigmatism anymore apparently I did in middle school). Could it be possible that the astigmatism adjustment in the glasses is giving me the headaches. I never have seen double vision, only blur. Should I just stick to glasses with only SPH adjustments since my contacts don’t deal with astigmatism adjustment. I rarely have headaches with my contacts.
