ok, so I’m running possible scenarios through my mind regarding my first set of differentials and am wondering if anyone has done the following?
I’m RE -5.75 with 3.25 cyl
LE -7.5 with 1.5 cyl.
I’m looking at two scenarios.
The first one being standard reduction of about 1.5 in both eyes for spherical.
So RE -4.25 with 3.25 cyl
LE -6 with 1.5 cyl
Then in normalized take sph down .25 in each eye.
Second scenario is to swap .5 cyl for .25 up in sph and reduce just 1 diopter from there.
So take diffs down to the following
RE -5 with 2.75 cyl
LE -6.75 with 1 cyl
Then with normalized just take the sph down by .25 from my full strength. Or would I have to convert the cyl in my full strength original prescription then drop the .25?
(I may be making this more complicated than I need to ).
I’m just trying to work this out in my brain. Perhaps it’s best to just go with option 1 but I can see where fairly quickly my cyl in my RE is going to be equal to my sph if I don’t get rid of some of it and it seems from what I’ve read so far this is not a good thing.
