Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Thank you for your very detailed post. It is entirely reasonable for you to just use the same correction in both eyes, leaving one eye a bit unfocused at near as long as this works well for you.
This will not cause any damage to your eyes at all.
Since you need more correction in on eye then the other, and you are really not used to having both eyes give you clear vision at near I can understand how this might cause you some discomfort..
Good Morning. Welcome to chat. Are you there?
Just a quick followup then - if I were to get correction for both eyes, should I expect the headaches would stop after a while as I adapt to the new situation, or should I expect it would continue, or is there really no way to guess in advance?
Ok. Just had to ask as sometimes we have difficulty with the chat system on your side of the planet :)
Understand ... well, I'm not behind the Great Firewall ...
That is an excellent question. If you were to get the correction for both eyes -- and wear the glasses full time -- I would expect the headaches to resolve within three weeks. If it doesn't get better by then it probably won't
Ya. That great firewall is a crime.
I'm in Wisconsin....
:) I haven't been there, and I'm not visiting the US until I don't have to choose between the zap and the grope ...OK, that's quite an exciting answer on the headaches ... opens up the possibility of allowing the eye to do its stuff which is possible an uinsurance against later trouble in the right eye.
typos ... "possibly an insurance"
Ya, the TSA have kinda gotten out of hand....
That is correct. Using or not using the glasses will not damage your eyes in any way at all. It is sorta like a software issue can not damage the hardware of a computer......
I was just typing in the question about damage ... as I was wondering whether not having to work so hard to focus means the eye loses the abaility to focus close without glasses more quickly ... as it doesn't need to work as hard to focus.
But it sounds like you're saying this won't make any difference?
*sigh* typos ... "ability"
That is correct. You will not damage your eyes at all this way. They wil not lose the ability to focus without glasses due to the use or not use of the glasses
I figured it out :)
Oh, I knew it. I know it's a fault on my part. "It" = "perfectionism and pedanticism".
Tagging you as excellent now.
