My wife bugged me about my cheap -1.0 glasses from the local drug store being too ugly. She didn’t want me wearing them to gatherings because they just look awful (in her not so humble opinion). This got me thinking…
Why not get a smashing final pair of glasses to start the final piece of my journey back to 20/20 with. They had to be different from the -1.0 of course in terms of diopters. I wanted the best index that’s available and the best coatings I could get. I’m not sure what the material is they used, it could be CR-39, I asked, but that didn’t ring a bell so it could be, we just might have a different name for it in Holland.
So behold, I’m now the proud owner of these great (-0.75) glasses:
Brand is “Police”, Led filtering coating is on there making it better to look at incoming headlights from other cars.
These bring me to 20/50 on Snellen and 20/40 with little effort. I’ll be using these as normalized from now on and eventually for night vision for the foreseeable future until night vision is done too. Nicely made to spec for my eyes, they weren’t cheap, but since it’s the final pair I’m getting it’s okay to indulge oneself a bit more. I supported my long time optician with this purchase, they deserve it because they went along with my endmyopia request without giving me a hard time at all. Glasses 1 year and 2 months ago: -3.75, present day -0.75 (but yeah, about 0.5 difference still because this is normalized and not full correction of course).
Once these give me solid clarity the last bit is up to my own eyes. I should be getting 20/40 at that point so there will probably be no need for -0.5 or lower.
Thanks to the great supportive optometrist Bart (contactlensspecialist, Hans Anders, Lisse, NL)!
