Hi Jake

Thanks for your message.
I paid today for a second opinion eye test at a new place and got completely different result.

He said full prescription would be:
R: -4.0 /-0.5
L: -3.25 / -0.25

But he said this is better than 20/20 and I explained I didn’t want that and I found when it is better I get an ache on my eyelid/inner eye. He suggested going weaker and tried out how it was with 0.25, 0.5 and 0.75 weaker. 0.75 was much too weak but 0.5 and 0.25 weaker both seemed ok but -0.5 obvs more blurry on what he was testing me with.

I’m just wondering now whether to go for
R:-3.75 L:-3.0
or
R: -3.5 L: -2.75

The first one matches my eye measurements more. Do you have a view on what would be best?

Thank you.
