With newly bought Acuvue Oasys spherical lenses, the first thing I did was measurement:
Lens powers are -7.00.
Eye | cm strong | cm weak | refraction | SE/OTP/my-vision-answer-for-laymans
Right | ~200 | 35 | -7.50/-2.25x180 (175-10) | -8.50 (more like -8.75)
Left | ~100-130 | 42 | -8.00/-1.25x170 (R - 5-15) | -8.50 (more like -8.25)
Indeed. SE is 0.75 lower than with Air Optix by Alcon. Maybe my vision was improved, though. And it certainly did while using previous contacts.
So, I finally bought -1.50 glasses for distance and on the order for +1.50 (when long close up less than 67 cm).
Red is definitely overcorrected in new -1.50, but green is still undercorrected. White looks perfect.
Q: Why not just norms and diffs like any person which is keen with usual EndMyopia?
A: In fact, I have those: they are in almost perfect alignment with official EM. With cylinder, yet cylinder is slightly too low for norms etc. And Rx is equal. Diffs are perfect, norms give me up to 20/30 (well, left eye sees less - 20/40 or 20/50) with backlight only. But I feel more comfortable with contacts, as they give 1) more peripheral vision - for example I see cars behind me when on a bicycle; 2) no aberration - spherical (extreme minification, peripheral distortion, halos at night etc), chromatic (only center is useful for seeing colors good - yes, I also have it all to a very least extent in my -1.50, but no even comparison to -7.00 or -9.00 and above).
Q: Why no cylinder in contacts despite so much astigmatism?
A: I have yet to come across ones for astigmatism that wear comfortably. Even major spherical variations fail to satisfy me.
Q: Why no cylinder in glasses?
A: I feel uncomfortable switching frequently from cylinder to no cylinder. Left eye could recognize 20/30 with backlight only, but right eye peaks at 20/50 or 20/40 when I am too optimistic. Yes, neither of rows after 20/70 is eye-candy (mostly due to residual monochromatic aberration), but they are still recognizable, up to 20/20 with left eye and to 20/40 with right. As well, I wanted glasses to be ready today. I can’t know when they’ll be if with cylinder due to holidays’ and corona implications. Also, it’s good for eyes to gradually clear this astigmatism fogginess. As with plus glasses, I don’t see a need explaining - the distance is too low for astigmatism to mess.
Q: Why not conatacts for distance with plus glasses for close up?
A: I already seen my vision worsened by 0.50 during this summer. Yet I hadn’t some so bad habits during this. Then it’s reasonable to suspect distance contacts use as well.
Q: As with much more complication with contacts for 25 cm, -1.5 and -3.5 glasses?
A: You already answered. It’s both complicated and expensive. Not to mention about its fanaticism/fearfulness.
Q: For how much time?
A: Well, the first run is the hardest. A lot of mixed defocus to clear, a lot of aching around. On the positive note, I imagine how it will be hereafter: spherical contacts should give more precise near and distant vision. I am not amongst people drawing timelines and plans, but it certainly worth to go this way until -6. If not until just glasses will be left
That’s all for today. You can complete my decisions and thoughts as much as you want.
