Hi everyone, hoping for some advice
I had high myopia
-10.75 with 0.75 cylinder, axis 5 left eye
-10.5 with 0.5 cylinder, axix 140 right eye
I made great gains to seeing around 20/40 down using
-7.75 left eye and -7.5 right eye keeping astigmatism corrections the same but then I thought I would remove the astigmatism component for the next reduction.
As my left eye was doing better I went for -7 both eyes for reading and -8.25 left with -8 right for distance, adding a bit to compensate for removing the astigmatism correction. This ended up in headaches, even though I get a lot of clear flashes to the point I can watch tv almost clearly but having to refocus every so often.
I need to deal with the headaches so I’m going to go for -7.25 left eye and -7 right eye for reading and up the distance to -8.5 left eye and -8.25 right eye leaving off astimatism correction. I’m hoping this will get rid of the headaches as i had previously worn contacts without astimatism correction so I assume it should work, but if not I’m going to revert back to having the astimatism correction on both lenses
Any advice appreciated
