My fellow EM members with high myopia. I wanted to know how to measure your myopia as the cm measurements are pretty small and it is harder to measure. Thanks!
Also side question : I have the following prescription :
-7 and -0.25 astigmatism
I bought contacts and use them as normalized, was wearing -6.5 contacts, been wearing -6.00 for a few weeks (4-5) and I struggle to find things to active focus on, and even when I do its minimal I often find myself far away (40 feet+) and its not even blurry, simply too small. Im thinking about reducing to -5.75. Also I can easily drive at night and can see every sign from far away. Also I found that with the -6.00 my visual acuity seems to be superior compared to my non myopic friends.
I know I should reduce only every 3-4 months.
Finally, is it okay to wear my differentials all day long when inside at home and if I do reduce to -5.75 for my contacts is it okay to not reduce my differentials and only reduce every 0.5 of reduction on my normalized?
