Is there anyone here who has started out with astigmatism prescription in their very first pair of glasses and therefore suspects it not to be lens-induced?
I didn’t start with low myopia that became worse and at some point had a cyl correction added (like it seems to be the case for most people with astigmatism?), so I am wondering if there might be some genetic component to it in my case and if most of the advice given here applies to me (I have watched Jake’s video on genetic astigmatism, where he talks about starting out with 3 diopters of cyl, but my measures weren’t that extreme either…). For about 8 months I’ve been trying all these things like adding sph instead of cyl and reducing cyl in my differentials, but haven’t made a lot of progress so far.
My first prescription at age 15 was this:
R sph 0 cyl -1,0
L sph +0,25 cyl -1,0
Now, at age 24, I’m here (normalized with some directional blur):
R sph -1,75 cyl -1,25
L sph -1,75 cyl -1,75
Axis stayed about the same over the years (180°).
Anyone else who had astigmatism before myopia? How did/would you approach it? Sometimes I feel a bit lost with this kind of “history”, so I’d love to hear about any kind of thoughts or experiences on this!!
