Hello Jake/ Hello All,
So this is my current situation:
Average cm for 3 days: L: 16 cm (-6.25) R: 15.2 (-6.60) (mostly taken at a desklight, but on average natural light seem to give same results).
Current glasses: L (-6.75) R (-7.00)
Differentials: L(-5.75) R(-5.75 - have ordered a slightly stronger one to balance to -6.00)
Current lenses: L(-6.00) R(-6.00)
Snellen (done once) 3M indoor L:9 R: 9
6M indoor L: DEF R: DEF
3M outdoor L: 11 R:11 (clear, just too small to read)
3M outdoor L: FDPLT R: FDPLT
Since the last optometrist visit which was yesterday plus a whole bunch of close up work, my eyesight seems super tired and I seem to have less distance vision. I tried to do a snellen this morning but my eyes seemed fatigued. He did a whole bunch of tests, and according to him, I would be better off with a L -7.00 and R -7.25 with a +0.80 progressive correction on the outer edges of the glass.
I wouldn’t agree with him, but I have been getting slight headaches and discomforts in my left eye + plus headaches on the left side of my head, even though the left eye seems to be the one that sees best. When I wear my lenses, my right eye is slightly under corrected so maybe the left is working a little too much? What do you guys think? that means I would also have to lower my lenses and jump down to -6.50 (they don’t have -6.25).
I am also doing close up work now with +1.00 glasses over my -6.00 lenses, and switching between my glasses and differentials. Even though my eyes are tired today, it seems to usually be ok (my usual working laptop distance is about 60cm).
Last thing, I have noticed that when I spend a day with my glasses, my eyes get really fatigued, even though I use differentials for close up.
