Induced Myopia

Post to This Thread

The reason I asked that question is that all Eye Care Professionals (ECPs) maintain records of their patients. If she went to the same oculist as before wearing glasses significantly different than previously prescribed, there would be questions asked.

If it is a different oculist, it does not mater as much.

You have not mentioned your wife's age or the reason for the eye exam. Both are important for answering your question. The fact that you asked the question 2 days before the exam makes it almost impossible to come up with an answer that will make sense to the ECP.

If it is a different oculist, just have here wear the -7.00 glasses or some that are just a little weaker.


mm 23 Sep 2017, 22:45

I think not.

But my wife remembers the sight defect.

and rather she does not know that she now wears -7 diopters

Cactus Jack 23 Sep 2017, 05:44


Is she going to the same oculist that prescribed the -3.00 glasses, I assume 2 years ago?


mm 23 Sep 2017, 03:21

For 2 years my wife induced -7.0 ( She does not know she wears strong glasses )

The last recipe is -3.0

On monday she goes to oculist.

What glasses should she wear?

What will the eye test show?

Cactus Jack 16 Sep 2017, 07:40


Yes. While it is called Pseudo Myopia, optically, it is really Myopia. The difference between Axial or True Myopia and Pseudo Myopia is the cause of each and how permanent they are. Pseudo Myopia is considered to be temporary. How temporary depends on many factors such as age, how long you have been overcorrected, how much you have been over corrected, etc.

One thing to remember is that optically, Pseudo Myopia and Latent Hyperopia are actually the same thing. Both are caused by the inability of the Ciliary Muscles and Crystalline Lenses to quickly relax to their minimum PLUS power. Which you have depends on your actual refractive error and the amount of residual extra PLUS you have induced.

If i induced pseudomyopia, will it show in the autorefractor? Thanks!

Also it isn't near as easy trying to order contacts on line as it used to be. Also contacts will cost much more as well because you can buy a very nice pair of glasses on line from Zenni ( for as little as $6.95. You're clearly only talking about contacts because your shy about wearing glasses. That's the first thing you need to get over with. If you can see perfect wearing your -1.75 glasses just start wearing them a little more each day until you're able to wear them from morning til bedtime in front of everyone and not feel shy. Simply look around at how many people you see wearing glasses. It's not a big deal for anyone to see you wearing glasses.

Forget about wearing contacts. Like Cactus jack said contacts aren't that easy to wear. It even takes days of wearing for your eyes to even get somewhat comfortable wearing them.

Cactus Jack 04 Sep 2017, 07:43


Either one will work, but glasses are much more convenient.

If you have never worn contact lenses, you need to get the first pair professionally fitted and you need instruction in the proper hygiene and care of the contacts. The reason for that is that while soft contact lenses are very forgiving, you still need to get the correct Brand, Diameter and Base Curve to fit your Corneas. Contact lenses float on a film of tears Incorrectly fitting contact lenses can block the tear film.

Your Corneas DO NOT have a blood supply. They get their Oxygen from the air and oxygen and nutrients from your tears. Your Corneas are living tissue and must have both.

Poor fitting or hygiene can result in permanent damage to your Corneas. Even if you do not need vision correction, you can get color changing or costume type contacts that include the Diameter, Base Curve and instruction.


Henry 04 Sep 2017, 05:18


when you prefer glasses, do all in glasses and wear them !


antonio 04 Sep 2017, 03:53

Hi Nichola,

seems you are already a little shortsighted,

for how long or how often have you worn your -1,75 pair already ?

I think wearing glasses or contacts doesnīt make any difference,

best regards, antonio

Nichola 04 Sep 2017, 01:21

Yes when I wear my glasses everything is very clear and eyes don't get tired. When I'm not wearing my glasses I do miss them now. I feel really need them on cloudy day and and night because it's brighter wearing them. What is the fastest way to get miopia contact lenses or glasses?

Cactus Jack 03 Sep 2017, 07:52


There are two kinds of Myopia. Axial or True Myopia and Pseudo or False Myopia. Axial Myopia is caused by excessive eyeball growth and is considered permanent. Pseudo Myopia is caused by the Ciliary Muscles having difficulty relaxing after focusing close for a long time or wearing glasses with more Minus than you actually need. Pseudo Myopia is considered to be temporary, but temporary can be a long time if you continue to wear more Minus than you need.

At 28, it is very rare for Axial Myopia to occur, unless you are genetically inclined to be Myopic or in the case of women, you become pregnant.

You can probably induce some Pseudo Myopia, until Presbyopia creeps up on you and limits the ability of your Ciliary Muscles and Crystalline Lenses to compensate for wearing more Minus than you need.

My suggestion is similar to Soundmanpt's. You need to wear Minus glasses, every hour you are awake. When you wear Minus glasses you are actually training your Ciliary Muscles to be stronger. In some ways it is like strength training at the gymnasium. You start with small weights and many repetitions, then gradually increase the weight (prescription). The -0.50 to -1.75 is a good start. When the -1.75 get comfortable, increase to -2.50. How far can you go, it depends on your motivation and some physical limits of your accommodation. The practical limits for most people in their mid to late 20s is about -12.00 over their actual prescription, but hat takes lots of work and effort.

If you start wearing your glasses full time, thereC. will be a day or two where you will be asked about your glasses, but that is usually the end of it. In some ways, it is like getting a new pair of shoes or a different hair style. You can even start with the -1.75s if you want. Few people notice the prescription, but notice the frames. If you are asked about your prescription, just tell them that you were surprised by the amount of correction you needed. You thought your vision was OK until you got an exam. It is great how well you now see distant signs etc. with your glasses.


Fred 03 Sep 2017, 05:54


you can discuss with Soundmanpt and others

all this in

best regards,


Nichola 03 Sep 2017, 00:22

So if I wear my -1.75 glasses all the for a few months then get news ones at -2.50 maybe in a year I could be wearing -3.00? So would I reley on glasses? Can I never be shortsighted? Can people get shortsighted when they get old or is it only longssighted?

I buy the cheaper lenses so my glasses look stronger

Soundmanpt 02 Sep 2017, 13:30


First of all you need to decide what you really want and then be totally committed to your decision. But for what it's worth at 28 years old you really don't have much of a chance of inducing any real myopia anyway. But if want to wear glasses stronger than you need, like you're already doing, you can certainly continue to do that. So I would suggest if you want to be a glasses wearer you need to get over being shy about it and just start wearing your -1.75 glasses full time and not just around the house and for driving. Just tell people you had your eyes tested and you now need to be wearing glasses. No one is going to question you about your wearing glasses. At first when friends see you wearing glasses they are only going to complement you on how nice you look wearing glasses. A few may even ask to try them. Remember they know nothing about glasses so let them try them. That prescription is not all that strong so they shouldn't question you about your glasses. After maybe 8 months if you want to wear stronger glasses go for it. It's very common for people to change their glasses after that long. But even wearing your glasses full time or part time your eyes aren't going to change from being -.50.

antonio 02 Sep 2017, 13:09

Hi Nichola,

if you have already been tested to need glasses of -0,5

itīs a really good idea to wear those when driving by night.

And of course if you like you can also wear them by day.

Probably after some time you need an increase anyway as we all often do,

so why not just start with your -0,5 wearing them right away all the time if you do like wearing glasses ?

best regards, antonio

Nichola 02 Sep 2017, 10:31

I've wanted to wear glasses for a few years but always been shy to start wearing them. I don't need glasses because I had my eyes tested and only got -0.50 myopia. I bought a pair of glasses with -1.75 and can see perfect but I only wear them in my house and when I drive at night. I'm thinking of wearing all the time but am I being stupid because I have good eyesight? Also I've tried wearing -4.00 all day and it was ok that's the prescription I would like to wear but I'm 28 years so wish I started wearing glasses some years ago. Can I wear contact lenses for some months and get shortsighted? Also at what prescription should I stop at?

Cactus Jack 05 Aug 2017, 11:03


If you seriously want to Induce Myopia, you need to get familiar with how vision and optics work, if you want your efforts to be successful.

You really need a good eye exam and a COMPLETE prescription to have a starting point for increasing your SPHERE power.

Here are a couple of tips to help you get started.

1. Prescriptions are customarily written with the Right Eye first. Sometimes they are written with abbreviations for the Latin names:

OD (Oculus Dexter) (Right Eye): Sphere, Cylinder, Axis, Prism, Add

OS (Oculus Sinister) (Left Eye): Sphere, Cylinder, Axis, Prism, Add

Prism and Add may not be listed if they are not required.

If Cylinder is listed, it ALWAYS has the Axis listed. They absolutely have to go together. The Axis number specifies the direction of the Long Axis of the Cylinder correction. By convention, 0 degrees is horizontal and 90 degrees is vertical. The numbers start at 0 degrees and increase in a counter-clockwise direction, looking at the patient, from 0 to 179 or 180 degrees. 0 and 180 are the same direction. Axis numbers above 180 are not used, because there is no need.

There is one very important rule for Inducing Myopia. You only change or increase the SPHERE number. Never the Cylinder or Axis. You copy those EXACTLY.

To order glasses, you need your Pupillary Distance (PD). It is easy to measure, if you don't have it. Your PD determines where the Optical Center (OC) of the corrective lenses are located.

Inducing Myopia is a bit like lifting weights at the Gymnasium. You start with a light weight and do lots of repetitions. For Inducing Myopia, you start with a small increase in Sphere. Say -1.50 or -2.00 over your actual prescription. Then wear them every waking hour. When you get comfortable wearing those, you increase the Sphere by another -1.00 or perhaps -2.00 and wear those until they are comfortable and repeat the process until you reach your goal.

If you have any astigmatism, you need to maintain that exact correction. It is counter productive to ignore it. The additional minus Sphere can be corrected internally, which is desirable. Astigmatism must be corrected externally with glasses or contact lenses or it will affect vision at all distances.

Do you have a goal?


Desperate  05 Aug 2017, 09:58

I didnt get the -rescription from the check up today but my old prescription before i wore the -2 glasses online was -0.50 -0.50 on the right and -1.00 -0.50 on the left. Im a psychology student in thailand

Cactus Jack 05 Aug 2017, 09:16


Did you get a prescription? That is where everything starts. What is your complete prescription?

May I ask a few more question?

1. What is your occupation?

2. If in school, what level and what is your primary field of study?

3. Where do you live (country)? That can affect our suggestions.

If you are serious, you probably need to increase your prescription, but you need to do it the right way.

There are two kinds of Myopia. Axial or True Myopia and Pseudo or False Myopia. They have two different causes, but the effect is the same. You need to wear MINUS glasses.

Axial Myopia is caused by excessive growth of the eyeball and it is considered permanent. Pseudo Myopia is caused by the Ciliary Muscles having difficulty fully relaxing after being stressed for a long time. It is considered temporary, but temporary can be a long time if you keep them under stress. It is believed that if you are young enough and your genes will permit it, Pseudo Myopia can cause production of an as yet un-isolated or unidentified Eyeball Growth Hormone which leads to increased Axial Myopia.


Desperate 05 Aug 2017, 08:54

The -2.00 isnt my real prescription. I justbought the pair online in hopes that it would make memore nearsighted

antonio 05 Aug 2017, 08:47


if your -2 glasses help you more to see clear than her suggestion

you should wear

then wear your -2 pair ?

best regards, antonio

Desperate 05 Aug 2017, 08:43

Helli good eve! I have been reading the threads here lately. I have been wearing a -2.00 glasses for months now (its not my real prescription). There are times when i dont wear them and i was pretty sure that i got nearsighted a bit. Also, i get headaches when not wearing them. Anyway i got my eyecheck up today and she told me that i dont need any nearsighted correction and i onlyhave astigmatisms. Also i think that my left eye is more blurry but she said that my right eye is what needs more correcti0n. Also, when she let mewalk around with the lenses they arent as clear as when i got my true glasses. What can i do to be truly nearsighted? Im 19 years old

Soundmanpt 14 Jun 2017, 12:15


I thought you understood that in order to get to around -2.00 that it is necessary that you wear considerably stringer glasses. But you seemed a bit disappointed in how strong your glasses look now compared to your -1.75 glasses. I think the prescription (-2.00) which you really want your prescription to become is a perfect prescription for you. Not too strong and not too weak so your glasses shouldn't look too strong or too weak.

What exactly will you be doing in that class? Are you still a little worried about it? Will it involve refracting your eyes?

Yes your advice is better than your parents for your sister. She certainly doesn't need her glasses for seeing anything close which of course means things like reading and doing homework. But her prescription is strong enough that i'm sure she can't see distances very well at all. Of course there is no way to know when her eyes started becoming nearsighted but she would have had a real problem seeing the board at school if she didn't get glasses. If she wears them at school I think she will soon start keeping them on most all the time. Her eyes are going to adjust to them and she won't like how blurry everything is when she takes them off.

oopsI 14 Jun 2017, 09:08


I'm aware that I need a higher prescription in order to increase to a level I want and I don't mind the -3.5's a lot or anything. But this confirmed that I do want to stick to my original plan, which is nice to know. Also I know -3.5 is still moderate, what I meant to say was that I like the look mostly up to -3's which would probably be low to moderate, I don't know.

The objective refraction will happen in a class and I'm hoping to partner with a friend whom doesn't know much about glasses, lol.

I'm not telling my sister to take her glasses of for anything, don't worry. She wears them in school and when she's on her bike and takes them off any other time. Parents wanted to make her wear them all the time, but I told them that it really doesn't matter at her age and prescription and if she feels comfortable without them she should just take them off.

Soundmanpt 13 Jun 2017, 18:32


I'm sure compared to your -1.75 glasses in the very same frame, your -3.50 glasses do look considerably stronger now. The lenses are thicker and your eyes appear much smaller now. But there still really only considered as "moderate" power. Remember the whole purpose of wearing stronger glasses now is to accelerate the process of inducing real myopia. Wearing your -1.75 glasses won't ever get you close to being at -2.00 which you want to end up at. You can only induce approximately half of the value of the glasses your wearing. So that would be right at -1.75 or maybe even -2.00. But either way you could certainly wear -2.00 glasses if you want. So I just went back and looked up a few things and back in may you were concerned about objective refraction and said that it could be awkward. has that come and gone or is that coming up? Is that a class or a vision check?

Well it seems we were both about right about what prescription your sister might need for her glasses if she in fact needed glasses. She is off to a pretty good start considering she is only 13 and she is almost certain to be needing an increase every year from now until she is in her mid twenties. She's really not far off from needing her glasses full time now even. I know you're trying to keep her eyes from getting worse by telling her not to wear them except when she needs them. But it really isn't going to change anything if she were to wear her glasses full time, that is with the exception of when she is reading or doing other close work which would be better for her to remove her glasses for, or if she does as you have encouraged her to do. So only wearing them in school isn't really enough because she can't see very well outside of class without glasses. And the more her eyes adjust to her glasses in class the ore she is going to notice how blurry things away from class are going to be. You really don't want her to be straining her eyes either. Let her decide if she is more comfortable wearing her glasses or not. Like I said wearing her glasses isn't going to make her eyes get worse, but the truth is her eyes are going to get worse and you can't do anything to stop it from happening. Does she seem okay with wearing her glasses? Has she adjusted to them yet or is she still getting used to them? She almost certainly is going to be more nearsighted than you will be.

oopsI 13 Jun 2017, 12:19


I'd actually like the glasses to look a little less strong, I must admit. As I stated in the beginning I like a low to moderate prescription best. I know -3.5 isn't super heavy or anything, but I think I'd like it best to wear something around a -2. I loved the look of the -1.75's.

I thought my vision hadn't really changed yet, but that was because I haven't compared my actual prescription with the -1.0's recently. When I take the -3.5's off it feels like I have perfect vision after a few seconds, but I think that might be because I'm getting more used to blurry vision because with this amount of overcorrection my vision does get more blurry when I'm not trying to focus on anything. I don't mind, though, because pseudo myopia's not what I'm trying to achieve in the long run. Anyways, I compared my old glasses and the -1's today and it was obvious that I'm seeing better with the -1's now. I think I might be at a -.5 or something by now, which would be nice.

My sister got her eyes checked and got a pair of glasses that she uses in school (she's at sph -1.25 and -1) and said they make a big difference when looking at the board. She doesn't wear them when she doesn't need them which is something I encourage in order for her prescription to not go up a lot. We'll see.

love, Linda

Soundmanpt 12 Jun 2017, 12:28


So good to hear from you again. I was wondering about you since you weren't around for a while. I was wondering how your eeys were doing with adjusting to the stronger glasses. You were basically wearing your -1.75 glasses as your everyday glasses so going from -1.75 to -3.50 is quite a jump for your eyes to adjust to. So i'm really glad to hear that your now fully adjusted to them and you don't get any headaches or distortion wearing your new glasses. I'm sure your eyes probably do look smaller now through your lenses. At the same time I have a feeling you liked it that some people noticed that your glasses looked stronger. How do you feel about that? But so far you're not noticing any change in your real eyesight?

Did your sister get her eyes examined yet?

oopsI 12 Jun 2017, 12:05

Sorry for being absent for a while, I was really busy.

I'm doing well with the -3.5's. I've gotten a few comments on them (that my eyes look smaller (friend whom I told that I got my prescription changed), that they do look thick (the frame is very thin and the lenses are pretty big, so it makes sense. the sunglasses don't even go over the edge of the frame)) but that was alright. I'm fully adjusted to them, don't get headaches or anything.

My vision doesn't stay blurry, I've been spending a lot of time outside since the weather is nice, so I'm guessing they won't have much effect at the moment, anyway.

Love Linda

-17.25, -4.5, 110, 24, out and -12.25, -5.00, 040, 24, out and an add of +2.

I live in Ohio, just completed my 1st year of college, and I am the worst at math and am not a fan of science.

Cactus Jack 06 Jun 2017, 16:09


It might be possible, but you DO NOT "just get some -25 glasses". It does take some "training"

May I as a few questions?

1. What is your Complete prescription?

2. Where do you live?

3. Are you still in school or soon starting University?

4. How did you do in math and science in school?


-25 05 Jun 2017, 23:19

Hi, I am nearsighted and some other stuff, about -17 and -12 and I really want to get to -25. I am 18 years old, is there any way? Also do I just get -25 glasses and make mys lef used to them?

Soundmanpt 26 May 2017, 15:48


Just checking to see how you're doing with your new glasses? I know you have only had them a few days? I'm sure your eyes are still working hard to adjust to them.

Soundmanpt 22 May 2017, 16:36

Glad to hear that you got your glasses. So how do you like your prescription sunglasses? I'm not really surprised that your glasses feel a little bit weird. It would have been helpful if you could have wore your -1.75 glasses along with your -1.00 contacts while you were waiting for your glasses to arrive. I know you have been wearing your -2.50 glasses around the house but that's still not the same as wearing the stronger prescription full time. So what you're really doing is almost doubling what your eyes are used to. I am glad that your headache didn't materialize. Maybe by getting a fresh start tomorrow morning will help a bit. I'm sure things do look small now, but as you know as your eyes adjust to your glasses everything will soon appear normal size to you again. Try not to walk into any bike racks. lol

oopsI 22 May 2017, 12:55


my glasses arrived. They feel a bit weird, but I see pretty well with them on. Not much distortion or anything. Stuff seems a bit small, though. I felt a headache come on about half an hour ago, but it didn't come, let's hope it stays that way.

I'm interested to see how my sisters appointment will go. I don't expect her prescription to be much higher than a -1, because she hasn't been complaining about not seeing the board well or anything. We will see, though.

Love, Linda

Soundmanpt 18 May 2017, 14:28


I assume your still waiting for your glasses to arrive? I'm sure it must be different in Austria as for as delivery service than here in the US. Here I always knew that once he shipped out of California I would have them in my mailbox within 3 days.

I'm glad to hear that you have been wearing the -2.50 glasses during this time. It's too bad that your eyes don't seem to be able to tolerate wearing contacts for very long. Since you really favor your -1.75 glasses for comfort and looks having the -1.00 under your glasses would have been perfe4ct all this time. But if you were able to wear your -2.50 glasses for nearly a full day inside and outside quite comfortably that should help when your new glasses arrive.

And nice that your sister has an eye appointment scheduled for next month. So what prescription do you think she will come away with? I have already said that I think maybe something like -1.00 or maybe -1.25. I really don't think she is going to need any stronger.

antonio 17 May 2017, 21:35

How much Astigmatismus correction do you wear currently, OopsI ? Just interested, habe a nice day,

love, Antonio ;-)

antonio 17 May 2017, 15:19

Wow Oopsi,

sounds funny Ehen you said you felt drunk without then :-)

Do you know it feels normally Mord difficult to give away your glasses the more the stronger your lenses get?

Guess you Start really needing Them to See? :-)

I sometimes like to look oder my lenses, toojust now I found out doing it I read the clock at the wall in this chamber wrong bareeyed, not a surprise With my -6.5 :-)

What do you like to look at over your lenses?

I had a female friend wearing glasses maybe like -2 who looked at me like that if I weren't too far :-)

Best regards, Antonio

oopsI 16 May 2017, 15:58


One of my friends loved the so much I told her to go on Zenni and order a pair. She's one of the people that had tried my old glasses and she nearly fell over because she couldn't handle the astigmatism (back then it was +.25-.5 in both eyes). Some people just seem very sensitive (she wears a light minus without cylinder herself).

I'm still going -1.75's outside and -2.5's at home and recently when i spend most of the day studying i wore the -2.5's for everything (including going for a walk and stuff) I barely notice them anymore.

My sister has an appointment about a month from now.

love, Linda

Soundmanpt 16 May 2017, 14:10


That's one thing that must make you feel good when people complement you on how awesome your glasses look on you. And didn't you simple love when they tried your glasses on that they said they felt really drunk wearing them? When people tried on your old glasses I think most hardly even noticed that they even had a prescription in them. Just think when you get your new glasses how much more drunk they will feel wearing them? And of course you're going to feel a lot more drunk as well when you take your glasses off. It doesn't sound like you have been wearing your -2.50 glasses very much at all recently? Don't you think that might make going from -1.75 to -3.50 pretty hard on your eyes? That's twice what you're wearing now you know. You might have to wear the -2.50 glasses for a few days so your eyes can better adjust. What do you think? Do you think your eyes can handle it okay straight away? Has mom or dad made an appointment for your sister to get her eyes checked yet? Is she out of school now and if so when does she go back? If she is going to be nervous about having to wear glasses i'm sure getting them just before starting back at school would make it that much harder for her if she barely even had them long enough to get used to wearing them. If she didn't say anything about your glasses feeling even slightly strong to her eyes i'm thinking that she probably need about -1.00 or even -1.25 glasses. I'm sure she liked the over correction just like you. But -1.00 or -1.25 is still about enough for full time wear. Too bad your -1.00 glasses have astigmatisms in them or you could let her try those for a while to see how they work for her.

oopsI 16 May 2017, 12:55


no, I'm wearing the -1.75's. I just like to look over the lenses sometimes.

Today a bunch of people told me how awesome the glasses looked and a few even tried them on. They all said they felt really drunk in them. I felt drunk without them.

Love, Linda

antonio 16 May 2017, 11:19

Hi Oopsi,

does that mean you are going around sometimes bareeyed again or do you use your old glasses then, those you have worn for a year now ?

Best regards, antonio

OopsI 14 May 2017, 13:20


Hey :)

No, the test is going to be at the end of June, I was just looking at two schedule and saw that there will be objective refraction done. I'm not sure if everyone will be doing it, though.

As I'm expecting the new glasses I have been a bit sloppy with wearing the ones I have at the moment and I've been testing my eye sighed all the time. I know, not effective, but as it still seems to be working and the changes will be more rapid with the stronger glasses I guess it's okay.

Soundmanpt 14 May 2017, 13:02


Okay so if they already shipped out of Hong Kong they should arrive this week sometime I would think.

Based on your own testing you're eyesight isn't as good as it was just 2 months ago before you started.

This is what you were expecting to come up but just a bit sooner than expected? Do you know what day they will be doing this? Well it shouldn't be too awkward. You certainly can't go in wearing your -1.75 glasses because your eyes could be slowly changing the longer you have your glasses off during the testing. So I would suggest that you pull out your old -.25 -.50 / -.25 -.50 glasses and wear them that day day at least until they finish testing you. Then you can put your -1.75 glasses back on. It would have been better if they were testing you next month.

oopsI 14 May 2017, 12:26

Just looked at my classes. We will be doing objective refraction... That could be awkward...

oopsI 14 May 2017, 09:45


I don't quite remember when it was that I placed the order, but tracking says it has left Hong Kong.

My vision without glasses was quite good when I started, I hardly noticed blurriness in good lighting using both my eyes. When it was darker/when I closed one eye there was some blur (in the dark) or ghosting (when closing one eye in good lighting). Now I think there is some blur when I wake up when I look out of the window. That's pretty subjective, though. I used an online eye exam thing this morning in good lighting to test it. My vision was better with the -1 glasses (instead of my regular glasses) for my left eye for sure, I think it was better for the right eye, too, but it's wasn't an obvious difference.

Love, Linda

You seem to be noticing some changes in your eyesight since you started wearing over correction. Were you able to see the leaves on a tree without your actual prescription glasses being on? And it's a very good sign that when you take off your glasses now it is taking longer and longer for your vision to recover and even then only partially. Apparently your left eye must be slightly weaker than your right eye. Interesting since your actual prescription is the same (-.25 -.50) in both eyes, I had to look that up to sure all the way back to March 14th) in both eyes. You mentioned recently that your vision is a bit more blurry in the morning than it used to be which is another good indicator of change. Once you get you new glasses it should even speed things more for you. How long ago did you place your order for them? Have you checked the tracking to see where they are? I know you said that you wear your -1.75 glasses as your everyday glasses but are you still wearing the -2.50 glasses around your house so it won't be as shocking to your eyes when the -3.50 glasses arrive and you start trying to wear them.

Have a great weekend Linda.
