Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
That is done to balance the prism between your two eyes. You need a total of 3 prism diopeters, so the way the glasses are made is too put half in each eye.
You still have the full 3 prism diopters of need prism. .
If your optometrist now feels that you do not need 3 diopters of prism it seems like your strabismus is not stable. If this is the case, glasses with prism will not work for you.
I'm sure you understand that if the amount of prism you need keeps changing having a static amount of prism power ground in your glasses won't take care of your double vision as the amount of strabismus changes.
You might want to consult with a pediatric ophthalmologist....they are experts on adult strabismus.
Also, if you think your prism amount is too much you have to remember that your need to give your brain time to get used to your new glasses with the prism in them....at least three weeks of full time wear.
Does this answer your question to your satisfaction?

Ok, I will.....it will be around 3 months for an appointment. Will it be ok to have the glasses re-made using "1" prism per eye? I tried thema t the office and they do help my vision a lot.
Just making sure it is safe for my eyes.
Thanks so much
