I am at high risk for floaters, and my eyes live up to it. My left eye has a large floater that as the doc says is “Unfortunately placed”. It’s been there a couple years, and my vision in that eye is intermittently blurry or clear. Studies with diffusion lenses suggest that the constant blur should send my myopia into a downward spiral, unlike blur from an optically clear lens that leads to adaptation to the lens. However, the first eye check after this started troubling me was the first time I’d ever been told “no changes”. They only changed the prescription in my good eye. Now that I have my Snellen chart, I seem to have 20/20 corrected vision in the affected eye, and 20/40 in the unaffected eye.
Did intermittent blur have protective effects against adapting to my last set of lenses? Was that eye more severely overcorrected to begin with? I can’t say, but it may affect how well I respond to this program.
