I´ve known about endmyopia for 1-2 years. But I have not been a serious learner / believer until recently. This was my first prescription (2018).
Right eye. Sph -0.5, Cyl -0.5 (axs 11)
Left eye. Sph -0.25, Cyl -0.5 (axs 1)
(I didnt use glasses for closeup, only for classes / cinemas / TV watching).
I recently read “Le Rough Guide” and today I measured my eyes again at an optometrist.
(MY CURRENT NORMALISED)
Right eye. Sph -0.25, Cyl -1 (axe 16)
Left eye. Sph +0.25, Cyl - 0.75 (axe 175)
I am not sure how, or where to start. I didn’t find many similar examples of my case on the site. And there were not a-lot in the guide about this. I basically have 0 myopia and high astigmatism. So I have some questions I was hoping someone could help me with.
a) Do I need to get differentials as my prescription is so low. I dont feel like I “need” any correction for closeup. Although there is one worry. While reading at night I find myself getting eyestrain.
b) The best way to “attack” my CYL. I am considering dropping the entire -1 and adding -0.5 SPH in both eyes. My current glasses have -0.5 astigmatism and I have 20/20 with them, so I think the -0.5 increase I got today was BS. If I understand it correctly I think they might have reduced 0.5 SPH and added 0.5 CYL instead. I felt like I saw worse with that prescription (test lenses) than my current normalised).
(ii) Or is it better to drop -0.25 CYL in both eyes - rinse and repeat - until 0.0.
