Glasses Lover , Sarah, my actual prescription is: OD: -4.25 -0.25 109 OS: -4.75 -0.50 171 My glasses I've worn for the past couple years: OD: -5.00 -0.25 109 OS: -5.75 -0.50 171 And now..latest that I received from Firmoo a couple weeks ago are: OD: -6.50 -0.25 109 OS: -7.00 -0.50 171 1.00 read Sarah , Glasseslover my real Rx ia L -4.75 0.75 85 R -5 -0.25 15.What's yours I wonder how much farther over I could go... Sarah , Glasseslover my real Rx ia L -4.75 0.75 85 R -5 -0.25 15.I absolutely love it and love having a lens that has a good amount of thickness and power rings!(It makes me look super nearsighted..at least I hope it does! I'm curious to see what your real Rx is and what you're wearing now and what you're glasses look like. My glasses collection is ridiculous - but that's another story!
It is rare to have glasses these days that are flat in the front.
They are both the same Rx - bumped up -1.75 from my "real" Rx.
I wear that overcorrection more than my "real" one so I don't think thats the issue. Just experienced my first foray into bifocals; and I must say the experience is exhilarating! Failed my vision screening in the 5th grade and subsequently went to an optometrist and was diagnosed with nearsightedness. I wanted glasses so bad I was so happy on the inside that my eyes were nearsighted.
I'm able to tolerate this just fine and thinking about bumping my next script to: OD: -7.50 -0.25 109 OS: -8.00 -0.50 171 1.50 read What is everyone's thoughts? New Glasses Trouble , Hey, I'm back with new glasses, and these ones are not only helping me see well in the distance, but now they hell me see only one image and help me see close up.
I'm excited and for the first time ever I can walk around with a fairly substantial lens thickness that would indicate to most people that I'm very nearsighted (which is what I want to portray.) The thought of having a -8.00 thickness is making me feel anxious in ordering it already! Not being able to see well or comfortably is miserable, particularly in an environment where vision is critical to your success. This time I was completly honest and straight forward during the exam.
