Hi everyone! My name is Kat, and I’m a fairly high myope looking to start my journey towards better eyesight. I have worn glasses for a little over 10 years, starting in fifth grade (then at -5 in both eyes). As per my own centimeter measurements my eyesight is L: -8.25 and R: -6. I am currently wearing a contact prescription at L. -7 and R: -6 (undercorrected due to not having checked my eyesight in years whilst sticking with the same prescription). Very excited to be a part of this community!
I have tried to read as much as possible on the website, in the community and the 7-day e-mail guide, and have tried to implement as many beneficial habits as possible. I am now ready for the next step in getting my differentials, which I gather I can ‘improvise’ as plus lenses over my contacts in the beginning, as I am quite comfortable with contacts.
Before starting, I have a question: Is there anything in particular to be mindful of given the large gap between my left and right eye? I would loathe to accidentally make one eye worse at the expense of the other (if that is even possible!)
Thanks in advance for any answers - I look forward to starting my journey properly!
