First post in this new thread!
11/29/18: Last night, I switched to -2.50, -2.25. Not the first time I’ve worn this power, but I didn’t stick to it in the past. I had been using -2.25, -2.00 for most of the past few months, but also was going without glasses sometimes for a few days at a time. I had tried going up 0.25 a few other times this past year, but wasn’t successful…I quit from fear of wearing stronger glasses or fatiguing my eyes. Thankfully, others here who have been through this reassured me that there’s nothing to worry about. This is going to be the first of many power increases, until I get to full correction/true normalized that lets me see around or close to 20/20. Plan is to stay with this power for about 6 weeks, and then increase by 0.25 again and stay with the next power for around 5 weeks.
Still using no glasses instead of a differential, which gives a good amount of myopic blur at about 20/40 for the computer distance of about 45cm; I’m going to look back at Jake’s videos on the timing and pattern of changing differentials and normalized. I now know you only want to change one a time, so that’s why I’m not going to use differentials at this time. The distance vision is more important to rectify right now…I can deal with a slightly blurry near for now.
Vision is pretty good with these. Fairly comfortable, even for the first day. I can tell these are focusing light much closer to the central retina than the previous pair was There is not too much blur, but distance is still vaguely indistinct compared to what you’d get with a full correction, and small details are not readable. Wearing them after a day of too much screen use did not reduce my acuity as I feared it might.
Snellen in poor, dim light with these is a readable but not perfect 20/60 as of today (measured at 10 feet with a Snellen chart intended to be used at that distance).
