I wanted to share a progress update. I’ve been doing my centimeter measurements regularly (not every day) now and I’m about to order my first normalized glass.
On september, When I started this course, I went to a local optometrist, here is the prescription for my full correction:
R -6,0 sph, -0,5 cyl axis 90
L -5,25 sph, -0.50 cyl axis 140
At that time, the current distance glasses I was using:
R: -6 sph, – 0.5 cyl axis 90
L: -5.25, 0 cyl
Since my main purpose was to get my differential glasses, so I did not change the distance glasses I was using at the time, here is my differential glass(I didn’t drop my astigmatism, because I was in too much of a hurry, I didn’t follow jake’s lessons fully, and that was my mistake):
R -4,5 sph, -0,5 cyl axis 90
L -3,75 sph, 0 cyl axis
I’ve been using this differential glasses for about two months, and work on creating new habits.
The major changes from Sep to Nov:
the naked eys centimeter: from 20.5cm to 21.5cm
the the centimeter using differential glass: from 50cm to 57cm
the eye chart using the current glasses: from 20/25 little blur to 20/20 little blur, even can read the 9th lilne of the 3m eye chart.
These changes give me a lot of confidence, thank you Jake.
SO I’m thinking of getting my first Normalized glasses.
But I’d like to ask you a few questions here:
1. According to my prescription for full correction on September (R -6,0 sph, -0,5 cyl axis 90; L -5,25 sph, -0.50 cyl axis 140), I have astigmatism for both eyes. But my current using glass ONLY have astigmatism correction for my right eyes (R: -6 sph, – 0.5 cyl axis 90; L: -5.25, 0 cyl).
My question is: Should I have astigmatism corrected for both of my eyes when I getting my first Normalized glasses？or Or you have some other suggestions for me？
2. the Optometrist said I have about +1 presbyopia，Are there any other factors I should consider？(I am a scientific researcher, Close-up work takes up half of my working time)
3. Imagine what I might encounter this situation: I got my first Normalized glasses for this (R -5.5 sph, L -5.0 sph, so the difference betweent right and left is 0.5 diopter), but my current differential glass is this (R -4.5 sph; L -3.75, so the difference betweent right and left is 0.75 diopter), so what should I do NEXT(I remember you said: One change at a time)? Still use current differential glass for close-up? or change a new one? or other principle and suggetions?
Thank you very much.
