    Hello there,

    I’m from Austria, 50 years old. At the moment wearing the following fancy bifocals, prescription from 2017:
    sph: r -6,75, l -5,25. Cyl: r -0,50, l -0,75. Near r -5,50, l -4,00

    As of 2 days ago, my doctorly prescription looked like this:
    bifocals: sph: r -6,50, l -5,00, Cyl: r -0,50, l -0,75. Near: R -4,50, L -3,00
    Computer glasses: sph: r -5,25, l -3,75, cyl: r -0,50, l -0,75. Near: r -4,50, l -3

    When reading or doing sth. up close I usually take my glasses off, tiring easily. Then I put my glasses on and hold whatever at a distance.

    I’m very uncomfortable with the whole situation, but I’m ready to take responsibility back in my own hands. Jake, thank you SO MUCH for showing a way and also offering guidance! I really appreciate all the work you have done! It all looks quite daunting at the moment, but I guess I’ll get into it. Danke vielmals!

      Yay! 🙂

      First step, untangling some of those diopter complexities. Ideal situation if possible, would be one pair of glasses for close-up, one for distance. Just one correction in each. It’ll be a much nicer visual experience with a lot less going on to mess with the image.

      The first 30 sessions will hopefully be useful for the close-up glasses.
