JACUSTOMER-6u3mdh4z- :

what do you suggest i do

Dr. Tom :

Hi...and thanks for your question. To help me answer you may I ask you a couple of questions?

JACUSTOMER-6u3mdh4z- :

yes

Dr. Tom :

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX any history of any eye deseases? How do you normaly handle your reading requirements when you have your contacts on?

JACUSTOMER-6u3mdh4z- :

no history of any eye disease...... as fae\r as reading i use reader glasses

Dr. Tom :

The reason for the second question is that you may have had a fitting that allowed you to have some near vision at the compromise of distant vision. Does that may sense?

Dr. Tom :

However if you are use to great distance vision, it sound like you need a re-fitting.

JACUSTOMER-6u3mdh4z- :

in the whenever i worn contact i always could see better than with glasses, but not this time

Dr. Tom :

Yes, I agree. It sounds like you need to have the lens power re-evaluated. Is there anything else I can answer for you while we are chatting?

JACUSTOMER-6u3mdh4z- :

no thank you

Dr. Tom :

You bet. Please write again if anything else comes up.
