I am from the UK, Joined the back to 20/20 back in January, having been doing it on and off, but really looking to start up again and make some real progress this time.
I started off well, and got to the point where I was using differentials for close up. Originally started at +1.50, but it started getting easier so moved to +2.0 - not sure if this was the right thing to do.
I am not sure if its in my head, as I have not been doing things correctly, I feel at times my vision seems it way have worsened slightly.
I need some help please with my prescription.
I currently wear a prescription of (this was from way back in 2012)
R: -4.25 Cyl -0.75 Axis 10
L: -3.75 Cyl -0.25 Axis 20
I did an eye test in January 2021 with the following results:
R: -4.75 Cyl -0.75 Axis 180
L: -3.75 Cyl -0.75 Axis 180.
I can no longer use an excuse of lockdown for wearing +2.0 over my current glasses (I’m starting to look like an idiot and not very professional).
I need to order some corrected glasses for closeup, but not sure what to order, any help would be much appreciated.
A few questions please:
Do I keep wearing my current prescription for normal activity - these glasses are 10 years old and need replacing, not sure whether to replace with new Jan 2021 prescription or keep the one from 2012.
What should I order for my corrected prescription for closeup.
I spend nearly all day on screens and find it hard to break away every 15 minutes, what’s the maximum time I should allow myself before a break or do I try harder and break every 15?
Thank you in advance
