Hi, I had the same eye prescription for 10 years (OD:-2.00, OS:-2.25) and I was seeing perfectly with it up to three years ago, when I started noticing some blur vision, difficulty to read scores of sport games on the tv, and when driving the smaller signs (like the parking ones or the name of the streets were not very clear)... At my annual eye exam, after expressing this concern to my optometrist
, he told me that my prescription has not changed. This continued for 3 exams in a row...
This year, I told my optometrist that it makes no sense that I need the same prescription, since I cannot see as clearly, and he gave me (OD:-2.25, OS:-2.50). I still could not see clearly enough with them, so I got another opinion.
The new optometrist, after an exam during which I never saw a sharp clear 20/20 line, told me that my prescription needs a very light change, but he suggest I use (OD:-2.00, OS:-2.25).
So I went to another optometrist and he told me that my current glasses
are too strong. During the exam the lens
I could see perfectly with (past the 20/20 mark
) and I ask what those lenses
were. It was (OD:-1.00, OS:-1.50) but the optometrist told me that it is not common to diminish lenses that much, and gave me another prescription as he also found astigmatism in my eyes (OD:-1.50, -0.50, 180, OS:-1.75, -0.50, 180)... I tried both those prescriptions (the later for astigmatism and the first regular) and I still had the same vision type.
So I decided to seek another opinion, and the last optometrist found the astigmatism as well, but suggested I tried it over-corrected (OD:-2.00, -0.50, 180, OS:-2.25, -0.50, 180)... And Still not a clear detailed image.
At this point I have no idea what to do. I have no health issue (diabetes, blood pressure, or anything) none of the optometrists found anything wrong with the eyes (I am 32 and in pretty good health overall)... I am just fead-up of guessing what something says...
Any advice? Should I just stick to a prescription and maybe my eye will get use to it, for I do see almost the same with all those pairs :(
