I am in an interesting situation. I have my centimeter measurements and Snellen chart results logged (several weeks’ worth actually)…but I don’t know for sure my current glasses’ prescription. I believe I have the prescription, because it’s my most recent one written by my ophthalmologist, but it’s from two years ago. The place where I bought my frames that would have the prescription used for them was hit by a tornado six months ago (I live in Texas) and was completely destroyed. Thankfully, the owners are OK and no one was hurt, but I have no way of contacting them and I’m sure my prescription was demolished along with the building anyway.
I have tried calling my ophthalmologist’s office and other optometrist offices to just see if I can come in to have the lenses scanned really quickly, but due to the Corona virus pandemic, offices are closed except for urgent cases until further notice. [which I completely understand; but the timing isn’t ideal]. So, given the circumstances, could I either figure out the differential diopters I need from the measurements I have without the glasses presc. or can I use the last prescription I have from my doctor and make the educated guess that it is in fact the correct prescription? Or do I need to hold off for a little while until I can get the lenses checked?
Help please! 🙁
