Most my life my vision was sharp enough that I have never needed to consider any correction.
I am trying to ease my fears of losing my cherished eyesight and to understand my options.
I have recently started noticing a slight blur to my vision. Is more obvious when looking straight ahead. I have noticed that I see a slightly more clearly when I look down while my head is pointing up, or up while my head is pointing down. The blur seems about equal for objects at any distance.
The blur is most obvious when reading LED displays or while reading computer text. It is almost like there is a slight blurred outline of the text, and with LED displays it is almost as if there is second digit behind, very slightly off center.
I did a few online acuity tests and it seems I now have somewhere between 20/30 and 20/40 vision in both eyes. I noticed that when I very gently press the top of my eyeballs from outside the eyelid suddenly I can read the 20/20 line crystal clear with both eyes. When I do this the slight blurry outline of computer text and shadow type effect from the LED clock also disappears.
When I took a few astigmatism tests with lines and shapes that were supposed to be identical I could see slightly different shades or thickness on a few, but no distortions.
What do you think is going on here with my vision?
How well would contact lenses correct this?
Please list the specific requirements to be a candidate for LASIK surgery?
I don't have to wear glasses or contacts first for any period of time before I can get LASIK?
