hi everyone - I’m not one to post long stories, so will keep it short. Been reading & practising the general endmyopia habits from afar but never really jumping in consistently until I noticed same issues with my 13 year old kiddo. So finally after making many excuses I’m getting serious about self-care. Had a question about cylinder:
My Feb 2020 prescription:
Right: -8.00 (sphere), no cyl, no axis, +0.50 (Addition), no prism
Left: -7.50 (sphere), no Cyl, no Axis, +0.50 (Addition), no prism
My April 2021 numbers from the opthamologist:
Right: -7.75 (sphere), -0.50 (Cyl), 135 (Axis), +0.75 (Addition), no prism
Left: -7.50 (sphere), no Cyl, no Axis, +0.75 (Addition), no prism
I know it’s not herculean gains, but I do feel really good about seeing a -7 in both eyes now . Gives me so much hope. So based on the course I want to order the following - does it sound ok to ignore the cylinder & addition? I know it’s suggested to reduce cylinder slowly but I think 0.5 should be ok?
Right: -7.75 (sphere), ignore cylinder, ignore addition
Left: -7.50 (sphere), no Cyl, no Axis, ignore addition
Lens type: Due to high myopia and after watching Jakes videos I think I have to get high index, polycarbonate, but should I get the anti-reflective coating?
For Close up/differentials: I still need to do the calculation on this. But wanted to get my full prescription ordered first. Any help appreciated!
