So I started my journey with -1.75 left and -2 eye from my optometrist with 0.25 of cyl. After learning about Endmyopia a couple months ago, I decided to go with -1.25 both eyes. I kept this normalized for about a couple months before visiting the optometrist today.
I went to a different optometrist today, so when I walked in she asked me my prescription and I decided to tell her I am -1.5 just to give her a baseline. So basically after all the tests, she told me my uncorrected vision is 20/70. The auto refractor read me at -2, but after doing the vision tests I was able to see 20/20 even 20/10 actually with -1.5 on both eyes.
She decided to give me a prescription of both -1.5 both eyes for contacts and glasses and even told me I don’t need astigmatism! So big improvement from my last prescription!
Moving forward is it a good idea to drop to -1 on both eyes as my new normalized?
Also had I not mentioned -1.5 as a baseline do you guys think the optometrist would have still corrected me to -1.5 as my “full prescription”. We tried -1.25 but I think it did not correct me to perfect vision, but she decided to go for -1.5.
I’m starting to not trust some optometrists as my previous one tried to give me -2.25 contacts. But this optometrist seemed very helpful!
