Hi everyone –
I have extremely low and overprescribed astigmatism. When I started measuring them on both eyes, I had less than -.25 cylinder (or to be more precise, -.1 and -.2). Since starting this program, I’ve noticed how my astigmatism changes from day to day – some days I get that slight double astigmatic blur, other days I don’t. For the most part, I still get some astigmatic blur with my -.25 astigmatism prescription.
I’ve read that reducing prescription complexity should come after the first real reduction (which I am currently working on), however I am 100% certain that my eyes feel better without the astigmatism in my current normalized.
I ordered a pair of differentials without any astigmatism on them to test my hunch, and my vision is actually clearer than my current normalized with astigmatism. I’m still seeing 20/25 in both instances.
Should I go ahead and use this no-astigmatism prescription given that lines are clearer and sharper with less astigmatic blur? Or should I wait until my eyes fully adjust to my first pair of normalized and then drop the astigmatism, per Jake’s advice? It feels a bit backwards in my case because I am seeing better without astigmatism on my prescription.
