Dropping cylinder altogether...is axis irrelevant now?

Ok, I’m still a newbie at all this so forgive me if this question is really lame. I want to get rid of my annoying cylinder but wasn’t sure what to do with my axis numbers. But I was informed that it doesn’t matter once cylinder is gone. Is that true? It would make sense so does that mean I just leave that part blank when I go to fill in my prescription? I appreciate all your help and wisdom on this awesome journey to 20/20!

Perhaps if she needs confirmation she can go look up what cylinder and axis mean from more reliable sources than us.

I’m sorry I just wanted to be sure before I ordered anything new. I should do some more reading, for sure! Thank you, ladies, for your patience and assistance.

yes, actually understanding the topic is better than asking people. Logic is more reliable than people and axis/cylinder is actually very logical if you know what it is

as Jake says, if you don’t understand it, DON’T change it!


You have a good attitude. You don’t let us get you down. :slight_smile:
