I have +0.50 in my right eye and +.75 in my left eye. What is my vision

There is no way of knowing. He has very little vision of the future. You can probably see quite well without glasses, at least if you are under 40.

However, you could still be totally blind due to brain, optic nerve, or eye disease or injury, and not see anything despite having a negligible eyeglass requirement.

Myopia is not a disease, but a refractive error of the eye. It cannot be cured, but it can be reversed. I am a living example of it. After being very nearsighted for over 20 years, I decided that I wanted to do everything I could to improve my eyes again. I had -6.25 in both eyes and doing some eye exercises brought it down to -5.75 in 5 weeks. Then I asked for a -4.75 prescription that they gave me. With these glasses I was able to see my office computer screen perfectly clear and in two years my eyes had adjusted to -4.75 by themselves. In two weeks I will receive my new prescription.

Myopia is not a disease, but a refractive error of the eye. It cannot be cured, but it can be reversed. I am a living example of it. After being very nearsighted for over 20 years, I decided that I wanted to do everything I could to improve my eyes again. I had -6.25 in both eyes and doing some eye exercises brought it down to -5.75 in 5 weeks. Then I asked for a -4.75 prescription that they gave me. With these glasses I was able to see my office computer screen perfectly clear and in two years my eyes had adjusted to -4.75 by themselves. In two weeks I will receive my new prescription, which is -3.75. I can recommend this method to anyone. You don't need 20/20 vision all the time, except in traffic. For most other activities, 20/50 is sufficient and your eyes, which fluctuate from day to day, will gradually improve. So far it has been a slow improvement, but I am speeding it up with a technique I recently learned, called push impression. Just a few recommendations:

  • Never, ever do eye surgery / lasik. I noticed that, in general, most doctors know how to combat symptoms effectively. Better doctors know how to cure disease. Keep in mind that optometrists, eye surgeons, and others who offer an easy and instant solution to the problem are only fighting the symptoms. It might help for a while, but then your eyes will be in worse shape than before.
  • If you wear glasses with total correction, use them only for looking far away. Never use them while reading. The focus point will be behind the retina and the eye will lengthen. This is how I ruined my eyes! When I was a teenager I wore contact lenses and no one told me it was harmful to wear them to read / work nearby. They don't just take them out and put them on later. That is why I do not recommend contact lenses.
  • I noticed that in this world no one wants my eyes to get better, and certainly not my optometrist. So this is a battle that you have to fight alone. If you're nearsighted, it's YOUR problem. No solution can be bought. Nothing will change until YOU proactively start working on it. I recommend reading books on how the eye works, such as The Art of Seeing by Aldous Huxley. A free PDF of the book can be found online.
  • Spend as much time as possible outdoors / in the sun. In sunny countries, like Mexico, myopia is less epidemic.

My vision is pretty bad so I can answer this question as I have been through this stage with my first prescription glasses.

Your vision at this point would be 5 and 6, which is a bit more.

The first time I bought prescription glasses it was in this range, and in my experience without wearing glasses, I can see the time on the GPS while sitting in the back seat of a car. That was several years ago, and right now, I can't make out anything on the GPS even though it's bigger than before.

Until now, with the vision of, someone should be able (if you are in school) to see the blackboard well unless you are a

My vision is pretty bad so I can answer this question as I have been through this stage with my first prescription glasses.

Your vision at this point would be 5 and 6, which is a bit more.

The first time I bought prescription glasses it was in this range, and in my experience without wearing glasses, I can see the time on the GPS while sitting in the back seat of a car. That was several years ago, and right now, I can't make out anything on the GPS even though it's bigger than before.

So far, with the vision of, someone should be able (if you are in school) to see the blackboard well unless you are at the end. Basically, there should be no problem affecting normal life, such as not being able to distinguish facial expressions and read signs. -0.5 to -0.75 would be a little lower than average

A view of your range is not that bad at all. I look worse, where vision is greater than -5.00 on prescription (basically around mine). Those with this prescription depth cannot even see the ground clearly and cannot make out faces.

However, the problem is not about vision, it is about keeping it at that level. As long as you keep your eyesight in this range, you won't even need glasses (unless it's safer to drive) until it gets worse. You will only need to continue resting your eyes if you exhaust them excessively and might even repair yourself eventually. Well a vision of -0.5 and -0.75 is quite low.

Now there are SPH and CYL. If your CYL is disoriented, it is best to wear glasses that help correct astigmatism.

Just remember not to wear deeper prescription glasses as that would ruin your eyes.

NO!

Small refractive errors like -0.25 are negligible. -0.75, however, can cause blurry vision at a distance, but you still shouldn't wear them all the time.

Here are some recipes:

-0.25: Smallest usable force. People don't need glasses at -0.25 because vision loss is hardly noticeable. You should still be able to see 20/20.

-0.5: Loss of vision is less. People with this prescription should be able to see 20/25 or at least 20/30. You may notice a slight blur at a distance, but you shouldn't use them. However, some people may want glasses to see clearly.

-0.75: you can notice how

-0.75: You may notice a slight blur at a distance, but it is too small to be significant. You can still see TV clearly from 10 feet. However, about 1 in 3 will use them.

-1: Distance vision will be mild to moderately blurred, but you must still pass the test drive. Blur shouldn't bother you, so it's okay to do without it. Although it's okay not to use them, about 1 in 2 will use this recipe just to see distant objects more clearly.

-1.25: Your distance vision will be quite blurry. You may need glasses to drive. This is when the blur in your distance vision becomes significant. Many people wear glasses with this prescription.

-1.50: Distance vision will be quite blurry, glasses are needed for driving and watching TV.

-2.00: Distance vision will be very blurry. However, it can still work fine without them. Glasses will be needed from time to time.

-2.50: Your myopia is no longer mild, you will need glasses to do most things. However, you don't need them while reading.

-3.00: You will need them all the time because you would be legally blind without them. You will no longer function without them.

-3.50: Distant objects can be difficult to identify. However, you will still see the shape of the object. You should be able to identify most objects unless they are too far away.

-4.00: Distant objects will appear as large blur. However, you can still see the shape and identify nearby objects. You will not be able to recognize faces unless you are 4 feet or closer.

Higher than -4.00: Your myopia is considered severe. Without your glasses, all you see will be a patch of colors.

Go 20/20 to -0.25, 20/30 to -0.75, 20/40 to -1, 20/50 to -1.25, 20/100 to -2 and 20/200 to -2.50 . The driving standard is 20/40, so you can drive with up to 1 diopter of myopia. It will be able to work with a refractive error of up to -2.50. If your prescription exceeds -2.50, you will be "legally blind without glasses" because you cannot see the big E without them.

Unless your prescription is greater than -1, I'd say don't even bother.

My advice is very different from Aileen's. I don't know how old you are. If you are still growing (less than 17-20 years), your vision is likely to deteriorate further until it stops growing.

If you wear glasses, you can expect to see everything more clearly. I would advise that once you get them, you use them constantly, even when reading. They should be removed when swimming, bathing or in bed. I advise it because, with the glasses on and the muscles of the eyes relaxed, you are focused on the distance, and when an object is approaching, or reading, you will be using the muscles normally.

It is also much more difficult to lose, or sit on your glasses if you are wearing them, and you will get used to putting them on much faster if you do not take them off.

Whether you wear the glasses or not will not affect your prescription; if it is still growing, it is very likely to change, if it has stopped growing, it is unlikely to change.

At 20/40, you are at the limit; glasses are a tool to help you function better. If you don't feel like you need them and don't drive, you can postpone the decision. If you drive, you are about to pass or fail your driving vision test. I would recommend that you start using them if you drive, you will be safer.

'Cured' is the wrong word. It also depends on whether the '+1.75' is where (DS) or the cylinder (followed by the axis direction). The left eye is considered normal.

If the prescription is R. +1.75 DS, this is a difficult situation, as the right eye has to focus more to see, both far and near. Even if corrected, vision may not be as clear as the left eye. You can't do anything about it, starting at 5 years of age. Brain / eye connections mature around age 5.

If the prescription is for a cylindrical correction, such as = 1.75 x 90 degrees, this is called '

If the prescription is for a cylindrical correction, such as = 1.75 x 90 degrees, this is called "astigmatism." Again, it is likely that, in adulthood, the corrected vision is not as good as that of the left eye, since the image formed in that eye was never clear enough that the connection between the brain and the eye would have been developed correctly. Wearing a correction (glasses or contact lenses) would not be beneficial.

In any case, the optical aberration (minimal in the left eye, moderately severe in the right) could be corrected by Lasik. However, vision after corrective laser surgery can never be clearer than with the correct glasses.

It depends on how much your myopia bothers you. If you have a diopter of myopia, you may very well need to wear glasses to pass the vision requirements for a driver's license.

On the other hand, if you don't drive a car and work mainly closely, then you don't have to wear glasses. Anything within a meter (3 feet) of your face should be in sharp focus, even without glasses.

When I was trained in New York City, I would ask prospective cataract surgery patients if they would rather drive or read without glasses. Most of them used to take a bus or subwa.

When I trained in New York City, I would ask prospective cataract surgery patients if they would rather drive or read without glasses. Most of them usually took a bus or subway, and did not have a car, so they preferred to be nearsighted, to be able to read without glasses.

When I moved to rural New York, most patients preferred to drive without glasses and were happy to put on a pair of dollar store glasses to read.

Now, we can offer cataract patients the option of a multifocal lens implant that allows them to see both far and near clearly without the need for glasses.

Yes, you can incorporate some measures into your lifestyle, so that myopia does not increase much.

Since this is pubertal age, there is a rapid increase in height and body. At this juncture, myopia tends to get worse quickly. So, include plenty of green leafy vegetables and fruits that are high in vitamin A.

Minimize your screen exposure (mobile and laptop) to a maximum of 10-15 minutes per day.

TV viewing for 30 minutes only, at a suitable distance.

Maximize outdoor activities.

See your ophthalmologist every 6 months.

Consult your ophthalmologist to find out about eye drops, for the prevention of increased myopia.

There are already enough answers, but I will try to answer your question.

If you were accompanying your child when their vision was tested and you are convinced that the prescribed power improved their ability to read fine print, then make these spectra and have your child wear it with their eyes open at all times.

You may be surprised at the change in your attitude a month from now. From now on, you must have a hard time concentrating on something.

My resolution is also -1.5 and -0.5 and believe me this is nothing serious. There are some precautions you should follow to prevent further damage to your eye:

  1. Wear glasses especially while reading or writing, watching television, using mobile phones, computers, etc.
  2. Wash your eyes at least three times a day.
  3. Drink plenty of water.

You can even have a better resolution if you follow these precautions!

It is obvious that the eye is not normal but we should not be concerned. The doctor who prescribed the remedy corrects the defect. You wear the glasses and you are almost normal.

The defect in sight when rectified should not cause any alarm. One should be concerned if he has an eye disease. Appreciate the difference between defect and disease.
