New and excited to be here and embark on this journey.
I did do a search on this topic but didn’t find the exact conversation I was looking for.
I just did the prescription lens check and blown away by what came back…
R = 4.5
L = 5.5
I was just prescribed for glasses on Monday
R = 6.0
L = 8.0!
I tried the contact lenses she prescribed at 6.0 for each eye because I do mono-vision lenses. I can see very clearly, there is no blur.
Can they really be that off and over-prescribed? She was the first one to warn me I was entering high myopia. I was a little depressed when she told me because no other eye doctor warned me that I was close to high myopia. No one talked to me about prevention. Even she didn’t really know what to tell me other than to eat right and exercise. Which I pretty much already do.
So, does this mean that my myopia isn’t as bad as they are telling me?
I just ordered my new normalized based on these readings.
We’ll see how I did when they get here. Very excited!
