Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
When you say you have distortion is more noticeable at near or at far when you are wearing the contact lenses?
I ask because you have more astigmatism in the right eye and it could be that if your contact lense does not correct for it,that you maybe noticing the slight distortion at near.
Also you left may not be fully corrected at distance ,so you may not be seeing as clearly at distance if the astigmatism was not taken into consideration.
Doctors have different fitting and prescribing methods when it comes to monovision.
So it may be that the distortion maybe due to the doctor giving you the full strength for near which may be interfering with your seeing better at distance
Instead of giving you +2.00 for near in the right eye he could give you a +1.50 to try and see if it helps you to read adequately at near and not interfere with your distance vision
Ultimately ,it would be something to discuss with your doctor the options we discussed above
Ihope this helps
Any questions let me know
When they list the prescription it doesn't say OD or OS, there is one set of prescription on top of another, I was told the bottom one was OS...is that correct?
What they did was correct only my left eye for distance, but when I'm wearing that left contact and I am on my computer I find I'm closing my left eye to read up close.
I'm not wearing anything for up close because I seem to be fine/happy up close, I work this way full time.
So assuming I gave you the correct prescription for OD, OS, how would I soften it for distance, not near. I believe it's the huge gap,differential, between an eye that can see up close and another that can see at distance, that is the problem. I think I could maybe train my brain with a softer distance prescription. I want to go to Europe and only have glasses as backup.
...meaning I want the one-contact solution to work. I would not get Lasik done until I know things are working and stable.
Yes ,if not written, the top numbers are OD(Right Eye);OS(Left Eye).
is on the bottom.
Decreasing the strength at distance or near so the difference in prescription between the two eyes is less may decrease the distortion.
When I originally read your note,I misread the presriptions.
I realize that you have greater astigmatism in the left eye. So if not corrected sometimes can give the impression of distortion.
If you get a contact lens for the left eye that is weaker, you want to go weaker but stillmake sure you have legal driving vision.
This may dcrease that distortion you are experiencing as well as balance your reading vision so you are not closing your left eye when you are reading.
Discuss this with your doctor.
You want to have it weakened so you still are satisfied at both distance and near.
OK I'll ask him what a weaker Rx would be for the left eye. I think this has promise as long as it doesn't go to extremes.
