My last full prescription was RE -7.00 SPH -1.00 70 Deg CYL and LE -5.25 SPH -0.75 CYL 110 Deg. I am wearing my second differentials and I would move on to my second normalized after 2 weeks. I thought that it would be a good idea to plan ahead to reduce prescription complexity.
The things that I have learnt from blogs regarding reduction of prescription complexity is, first achieve couple of successful spherical reductions, remove astigmatism before equalizing, and insert spherical reductions between these changes. Another important general strategy is to attempt changes first for close-up range before attempting for distance. Jake also says that its best to have a clean prescription before touching 2 diopters.
I know that this is diopter specific, but I just want a general guideline. It is totally up to me to decide and navigate through. Please don’t ban me. If down the line I successfully adapt to LE -5.25 SPH -1.00 CYL RE -3.50 SPH -0.75 CYL, will LE -5.50 SPH -0.50 CYL RE -3.75 SPH -0.25 CYL be a sensible attempt to reduce cylinders?
Thanks in advance.
