Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, Thank you for the question.I am Dr.A.S.Desai and I look forward to assisting you .
Are you available for chat now?
No, it is not bad to correct a mild astigmatism. It does take time to adapt to a newly introduced astigmatic correction.
Yes, I'm available
Contact lenses can correct a mild astigmatism hence the regular spherical power is given.
Since you are very comfortable with the contact lenses, it shows that the right lens is able to correct the astigmatism too ( with - 2.75).
Ok, thank you. Could part of the eye strain be from the reduction in strength from -2.75 to -2.5 and if so, should that be changed? I feel that it is too soon to tell if the strain/odd vision is only from the astigmatism correction or both
You need not get the glasses remade. It is better to get used to it.
ok, thank you. One more thing, once I am used to the glasses, will there be any problem with switching between my -2.75 contacts and the glasses?
Since it is a newly introduced cylindrical power for astigmatism, it is expected to cause some discomfort initially until you get adjusted to it.
No, There will not be any problem with the switching.
Ok, thank you for your help!
