note: only talking about right eye.
If my right eye prescription is: -0.50sph, -1.25cyl (confirmed two weeks ago)
and I’m wearing -0.50sph, -0.50cyl for closeup. And -0.75sph, -0.75cyl normalized, and since doing active focus didn’t help improve cylinder over the course of more than 6 months. Would utilizing spherical equivalent
-1.0sph, -0.50cyl, help? I am scared that it would create more lense induced Myopia, would it?
I tried combining -0.50sph contact lense and -0.50sph, -0.50cyl glasses to get -1.0sph, -0.50cyl total, and I would say I have a better stimulus, but I’m afraid of lens-induced myopia.
I did have only 0.25sph progress on this eye (my original prescription was -0.75sph, -1.25cyl), but the cylinder is really stubborn. so I’m trying to see what the hell is going on.
I did start with astigmatism in 2015 but it was only -0.25sph, -0.25cyl, and I didn’t wear any glasses until 2018.
My gut is telling me my astigmatism is real (i always successfully cheated for right eye on eye exam until my 20s) but that raise of myopia actually made it more apparent, and that I should keep maybe full cylinder correction and drop to 0.25sph. my thinking is if myopia reduces, astigmatism would drop too, but maybe I’m wrong. I also think (my fear is) that possibly overprescription (adding sph equivalent) of myopia could lead to increasing astigmatism.
I’m really confused and have no idea if anyone has a similar situation please share your experience.
