I am currently wearing the diopters that the optometrist had prescribed me 2 years ago. I have lost my prescription and my eyesight in my left eye has slightly worsened.
For the past 2 weeks I have been measuring my eyesight morning day and night in centimeters.
Right eye: 36cm Left eye 40 cm
This measurement has been consistent all the time as I don’t look at screens much.
Now the problem is I don’t know my previous diopter difference and it has probably changed now (by 0.25 almost).
So once I wear my differentials I cannot go back to my old glasses (that I’m currently wearing)
I have bought differentials according to the measurements I have made (1.5 diopters reduced from what I need)
Also I have bought normalized 0.25 diopters less than my full correction. (I know I wasn’t supposed to)
My question is: can I wear my normalized (only 0.25 diopters less) for distance vision so that my diopter difference remains the same across my glasses
Or should I buy full correction glasses according to my new diopter difference (which I know I was supposed to)
I just wanna know if anyone has been in the same spot as me and If 0.25 reduced normalized is too much for my eyes right now(will it backfire?)
