Hello,

Thank you so much:

It looks like things will work out for your with the prisms. I suggest that you give the prism 3-4 weeks and see if it adjusts better. Sometimes it can take few weeks to adjust. If not, then your eye doctor can increase the prism possible with some "base down" effect. Good luck. I'm happy for you. God bless.

ugh more waiting been waiting for two years for this to clear i just thought i would put the prism on and everything would clear should i call the surgeon or just wait couple weeks also you dont think them dividing the prism in each eye made a difference

Thank you so much.

I suggest you wait a few more weeks. It is no problem to divide the prism in both eyes. It does not make any difference. However, if after couple of weeks, it is not helpful, you can request for prism to be put in one eye. God bless.
