Mod: (Do NOT Lock)(NOT a duplicate)(NOT a followup)
When cyclopleged (Atropine) and +2.5 readers, my vision is clear at a distance of 30.5cm (as you know it should be 40cm) and with +1.25 readers it's 51cm (should be 80cm). These measurements seem to indicate I'm either myopic by a magnitude around -0.5 (not a large amount)... or my accommodation was not completely paralyzed.
I'm trying to determine the next steps to figure out my prescription/solution. Non-cyclopleged, if I stop straining and let my eyes come to a normal relaxed state, vision seems clearest at a distance of 23/28cm (R/L). A -3 lens
may compensate for the over-accommodation but it won't correct the action of the accommodative muscles, so my eyes may still cross inward because they think they are pointing to a near object? Also, a -3 CL will take away my near vision. So a -3 isn't the solution?
Here's an observation that may provide additional insight: When I pinhole to remove elements of refractive error, it still requires straining to get the image into focus. When I'm straining, adding pinhole does provide better clarity, indicating a small part of the problem is refractive error, but the fact that the biggest improvement is produced when I strain suggests the issue must be something besides refractive error?
*((One part I still don't understand, is if my eye's relaxed state is over-accommodation, thus blurry, then when I do the action of "straining", what am I doing? Counter corecting for the over-accommodation, or am I using muscles to force the accommodative system (lens) to flatten?))
