to Soundmanpt:

Thank you for taking this right, and thank you for your friendly answer!

This should not be too much critizism towards your question, I just wanted to point out, that Jennifer has found her way now, in balance with herself, her own personality and her wishes. We are all free to look back, but it is also important to look forward, and she is looking forward now, with many vision experiences now, day by day.


Soundmanpt 02 Apr 2018, 09:27

I get your point and honestly hope and certainly didn't intend for my question to make her feel the way you think she might. The point of my question was why now after she admittedly stated that she needed to be wearing glasses much sooner than when she finally got them. I guess what I was curious about was what was the final straw that made her go for an eye exam and get her glasses? I in no way intended to make her feel guilty and I hope she didn't take it that way.

Commenting Soundman's remarks:

".... why did you put off getting glasses for so long? You seem to have clearly known that you needed to be wearing glasses for quite a while. Was it just that you didn't want to be seen wearing glasses or something else? ....".

Why are you asking this poor girl so many questions, she might feel a kind of guilty after reading your questions!

Every morning is a new morning, and we are lucky when we get the opportunity going into the new day, avoiding yesterday's errors. She's proudly wearing here glasses now, she is convinced, not forced into wearing her glasses. Such shortcomings in vision creep in slowly over time, and we are not aware of it from the very first moment. Sometimes we're astonished, and asking a friend: "can you see this?", and fences or rooftops are just surfaces without structures, and trees might be green balloons.

Of course she did not avoid wearing glasses intentionally, as she did not know, which world of clear vision would be open to her, when a myopia of 1.50 with an astigmatism of 2.50 would undergo correction!

So, every day is a new day, and Jennifer can start her day, with a precision of seeing things unknown before, and she can discover a new world of vision every morning.

So don't ask these questions, a glasses wearer could go a step back to seeing without glasses, but most of them would not go backwards - every day is a new day, and we all try to avoid yesterday's errors and shortcomings.


Maxim 01 Apr 2018, 11:05

PS.:

remark on Voice of Sanity's remarks

Your advice might be o.k. for much lower prescriptions with less than 1.0 diopter of myopia, but less with astigmatism-

Astigmatism is a lens deformation, and the eye tries to cope with that deformation using certain muscles, and it can not compensate for it. When the lens is correcting this deformation, the eye (these muscles) can relax. You can not only see better, but a cause of headaches is gone as well. I know this from my first glasses with an astigmatism of then 1.50 from own experience.

When Jennifer wants to avoid headaches, and fulfill certain vision requirements (e.g driving) there is no solution without vision correction for her!


Maxim 01 Apr 2018, 10:52

Hello Jennifer, my best wishes and gratulations.

Your prescription is not dramatic, it is what the experts say, a 'low' prescription. But on the other hand, it is quite substantial, and, as you agree now, without glasses you just see nothing compared to wearing your glasses.

For example, without your glasses, you can't see that a fence is a fence - it might have been all over the years a greyish surface, but not a fence. So I understood from your writing, that you are quite happy with your glasses.

Don't be afraid, there might be not very much increase over the years to come, and the astigmatism might very well stabilize and not grow, just the myopia (nearsighted) might increase a bit, but not too much - this is my opinion.And still, this prescription gives a very nice looking and attractive appearance to young ladies, at least this is my preference (between -2.00 and - 6.00 or -7.00).

So all the best, and happy Easter holidays!

Congratulations on being a newbie glasses girl !

I am glad that your adjustment period went well.

In about six months or so, you may notice that you are not seeing quite as well as you are now. That is totally normal, as many times the optometrist will slightly under correct you, to aid is getting used to a first time correction, or sometimes it is just that your eyes get a bit worse. When that happens, be sure to have another exam, and then the adjustment to the new glasses will not be as drastic, as with your first pair.

Depending on your age, you certainly can look forward to a few increases to your prescription over the next few years.


Soundmanpt 31 Mar 2018, 14:21

Jennifer

Glad to hear that your eyes have adjusted to your glasses and that you're mow comfortable wearing them. It's normal when your first pair of glasses has quite a bit of astigmatism correction that it can often take several days for your eyes to fully adjust to your prescription. I'm sure that everything looks a lot more blurred now when you take off your glasses that it was before you got your glasses. Before you were aided by something called accommodation. But what it really means is that your brain was helping you see better than you really could. Now after wearing your glasses for a week your eyes are much more relaxed and not using any accommodation and your not straining your eyes trying to see things anymore.

So if you don't mind my asking why did you put off getting glasses for so long? You seem to have clearly known that you needed to be wearing glasses for quite a while. Was it just that you didn't want to be seen wearing glasses or something else? Since you got your glasses and have been wearing them have you gotten lots of nice complements on how good you look wearing glasses? I'm betting that you have. Are you sorry that you didn't get glasses much sooner instead of putting it off? You really do seem to be enjoying being avle to see so good now.


Jennifer 31 Mar 2018, 09:20

It has been a week, and I now feel comfortable with my glasses. I notice how bad my eyesight is more now because the difference between having my glasses on and off. Before I had nothing to compare to.

The glasses are great, I can actually see small and far away things for the first time in such a long time!

I no longer see the imaginary steps or slanted letters which is great. I had no idea vision was supposed to be this good.


NNVisitor 26 Mar 2018, 22:41

Jennifer

It will certainly take time to get used to wearing your glasses. You have a lot of astigmatism in addition to being nearsighted. Hopefully in time you will have adjusted to them. See how it goes during the next week-two weeks. If you absolutely cannot adjust to them after 10 days or so have the eye doctor you went to check your glasses. If you are told that they were done correctly and you still cannot adjust to them then consider getting contact lenses. Contact lenses take time to get used to as you would have to learn how to insert them, take them out and disinfect and store them using the appropriate solutions. Also at first you will feel them on your eyes. Vision typically is great with contact lenses and what you see will be more natural than what you see with glasses. Glasses are easier to deal with as contact lenses do in fact touch your eyes and even if you are tired in the evening you still must take them out using good hygene techniques and properly cleaning and storing them. Never sleep in contact lenses. Good luck Jennifer on whatever you decide to do.


Likelenses 26 Mar 2018, 21:13

Soundmanpt

I totally agree.


Soundmanpt 26 Mar 2018, 10:53

Voice of San

My comments to Jennifer is based on what is fact in her case. If she had only been prescribed with say -.50 glasses for distance I would maybe suggest that she wear her glasses for a week to 10 days so she gets used to wearing glasses and so her eyes could adjust. And then she could wear her glasses as needed. But her prescription is considerably stronger than that and she really needs to be wearing glasses full time now based strictly on her prescription and not because I simply want her to wear glasses. If you knew anything about optics you would know that adjusting to a rather high cylinder isn't that easy and the only way to adjust is by wearing your glasses as much as possible. Yes, in the end between her nearsightedness and astigmatisms she is almost certainly going to want and need to continue wearing her glasses full time. Of course if she wants doesn't want top wear glasses she can opt for contacts, But for her she would need "toric lenses" which are considerably more expensive than regular contacts. Actually about 3 or 4 times more expensive. That's totally up to her.

You're right this forum is about glasses but sometimes the advice provided is based on fact and not fetish.


Voice of Sanity 26 Mar 2018, 08:26

Jennifer

Glasses simply change the way light is refracted to your eyes. It has largely been proven that wearing glasses regularly won't change the physical structure of the eye. It is physically impossible to do that. So the arguments that you need to keep wearing glasses are spurious.

I suggest you disregard the damnations here to constantly wear your glasses. This is a glasses fetish website where people whack off to women who wear glasses. Do you think they would tell you to stop wearing glasses? Of course not. If you don't want to wear your glasses, you will be just as fine as wearing your glasses. Nothing will change. Don't worry.


Soundmanpt 25 Mar 2018, 14:01

Jennifer

It sounds like you're already tolerating your glasses a bit more than when you first put them on? Unless you have already been wearing your glasses all day which if you have then just continue to wear them. But if you aren't currently wearing them then it probably isn't a good idea wearing them in the car on the way to the theater. but once you get seated and not moving around you should put your glasses and hopefully it's a a movie that will keep your interest and you won't even think about your glasses being on. When the movie ends and your hopefully still wearing your glasses try keeping them on the rest of the evening. If you keep them on for the entire movie that should be close to 2 hours and by then your eyes should be feeling a lot more comfortable wearing glasses. Good luck and enjoy the movie.


Jennifer 25 Mar 2018, 12:10

Thank you guys, I will try keeping them on while I go to the movies tonight. Hopefully they will help.


Soundmanpt 25 Mar 2018, 10:08

Jennifer

You have needed glasses for a while. Your eyesight isn't terrible but it is for this being your first prescription. Your distance part of your prescription is the first numbers in each row of numbers. So your right eye your distance vision is -1.25 and your left eye is -1.50 so more than bad enough that you shouldn't be driving a car which I hope you weren't. The other numbers are your astigmatism numbers and normally those numbers are usually much lower. Usually around -.50 or -.75 is average. So you are considerably past those numbers. That's why you're having so much trouble adjusting to your glasses. So unfortunately the only way to adjust is by forcing yourself to keep your glasses on. Like Likelenses said find something where you're not changing focus with your eyes. Things like reading is good or sitting watching TV is also fine. The more you move around and look at something in the distance and then look at something close the more your glasses are going to bother you. Trust me once your eyes adjust you won't have this problem again. Likelenses is right once you need to be wearing your glasses full time and once your eyes adjust I don't think your going to want to be without your glasses anymore.


Likelenses 24 Mar 2018, 22:23

Jennifer

To get used to your new glasses, it would help if you pit them on, and read a book for a few hours.

Most likely you will find them very comfortable for reading. You may feel a need to push the book farther away than what you would usually read at, and that is good, but try to hold it no closer than twelve inches.

After a few hours or reading things in the distance should not be so distorted. It may hake a few days of doing this , before all seems to look normal.


Likelenses 24 Mar 2018, 22:09

Jennifer

You are nearsighted, but you also have a boatload of astigmatism in each eye.

The astigmatism correction is what is making it difficult to adjust to your glasses.

I agree with Soundmanpt on the importance of leaving them on.

When you do get used to them, you will need them all the time.


Jennifer 24 Mar 2018, 21:54

I do have my prescription it is Top row: -1.25, -2.75,110 bottom row is : -1.5, -2.5, 100

My eyesight has gotten horrible, I was too busy with other things and never went to the eye doctor, but i have been having trouble seeing for a long time.


Soundmanpt 24 Mar 2018, 20:03

Jennifer

I wish that you would have asked for a copy of your prescription because that would really be a huge help in providing you with advice. But I have a few questions that you may know the answers to which could be of help. First of all when you went to get your eyes examined were you having some type of vision problem or was your exam just an annual checkup which found that you needed to start wearing glasses? Did the doctor say anything about your having astigmatisms? Your reactions to your glasses really seems like what some people experience when they get prescribed with their first astigmatism prescription.

I can tell you one thing for sure. Going back now their only going to tell you that your eyes need to adjust to your glasses and that you should wear them constantly for the week to 14 days. Then if you're still having issues with your glasses you should come back and they will check things out. Honestly about 99% of the time they are right and by wearing your glasses your eye swill adjust and you will be seeing fine with them. So I would suggest as soon as you open your eyes tomorrow morning that you put your glasses right away and keep them on as long as possible. All day into the evening if possible. but if you do need to take them off to rest your eyes put them back on as soon as possible. Do that every day and I think you''re going to find that each day your glasses re going to work better and better for you.


Jennifer 24 Mar 2018, 19:01

Hi,

I just picked up my long overdue first glasses.

I had them on at the shop, but took them off as I left because it was making me see weird things looked weird. I saw stairs that were not there, and weird dimensions in pictures.

I tried them on a couple of times later at home, but it was not any better as I experienced the same thing.

Any advise?


Lou 22 Mar 2018, 12:23

Hi

I've just ordered myself a new pair of glasses, the same style as I'm already wearing but with brown reactions, as the British spring seems to be making an appearance after two separate bouts of recent snow, although apparently it is going to get cold again!

This is what I've gone for, as I find this frame very comfortable and I like how I look in it:

I've also gone for the anti-reflective coating. I pick them up next week.

The nature, and wording of your posts indicate one of two things. Either you are a very immature troll posting from your mommies basement, or that you are a mentally broken machine, brought on by a sexually perverted lifestyle, and potentially dangerous to yourself,and possibly others.

Your imagination regarding sex leads me to believe the latter. If this is the case you are in need of professional mental health treatment.

This will be the last post from me to you, as I feel that continued communication is pointless, and actually could feed your already defective mental state.

NNVisitor 13 Mar 2018, 21:42

Some optometrists say their patients should wear their glasses all the time. If the prescription is a low one some say wear them for driving, TV and movies while others yet say to wear them all the time. When patients already are wearing glasses and get an increase often the examining doctor hands them a prescription with no advice on wearing time.

In any event some people religiously follow their eye doctor's advice as to wearing their glasses. Others partly or completely ignore the advice. I have seen no evidence that wearing or not wearing one's glasses all waking hours if myopic will make one's eyesight worse.


 13 Mar 2018, 16:19

Likelenses, the guy probably was laughing at you because he saw you talking to the imaginary Cheryl. So pathetic, really.

Or maybe Cheryl is the name you put to your wanking hand, I don't know.

Opt O. Metrist

When I went to my optometrist yesterday I mentioned your remarks about taking a break every day from my glasses, and he actually began to laugh about it. He said that he had never heard of such nonsense.


Likelenses 12 Mar 2018, 22:02

Had an eye exam yesterday, and received a -.50 increase. which brings me up to - 11.0 for each eye.

Cheryl wears bio concaves as her Rx is higher, but when we went to pick out my new glasses she suggested that I ask the optician to make mine in bio concave.

He said he could do it, and we are both excited to get them in about a week.


Likelenses 10 Mar 2018, 23:33

Opt O. Metrist

I am myopic, and have worn glasses for many years. My optometrist advised me with my first pair, to wear them all the time, for all activities distant, and near.She wore strong minus glasses herself, and commented that she put hers on in the morning when her alarm clock went off, as she could not see it, and that they stayed on all day, and evening.

When I first put them on, I realized how much I needed them, and ever since they are on with the exception of sleeping, and showering.

Why would you as an optometrist want someone to remove their glasses, and be unable to see?


Cactus Jack 10 Mar 2018, 12:19

Opt O. Metrist.

Thanks for your comments. I agree with you. I debated that suggestion for a while before I wrote it and later wished that I could edit it. I never pretend to be an ECP, but in this case, I did not include a disclaimer, but I should have.

I am very curious about several things, but didn't want to overload him with too many questions. I doubt he will actually wear his glasses full time no matter what anyone suggests.

I am having trouble understanding how he has managed in school. With that much Myopia and Astigmatism, his "visual world" must be pretty small, probably less than 2 feet or 60 cm..

Because these were likely his first glasses, do you think his ECP under corrected him or he will have trouble focusing close, when wearing his glasses, until his Ciliary Muscles get conditioned?

One would think that his ECP would have given him some instructions about what to expect with his glasses.

C.


Opt O. Metrist 10 Mar 2018, 05:47

You are wrong this time, Cactus Jack. No one should ever wear glasses that much time during the day. Not every waking moment. We always recommend giving your eyes a break from glasses at least once everyday. This is the problem with pseudo-eye doctors here. Their advice differs from actual medical advice, while appreciated, it's much preferable to listen to the latter.


Cactus Jack 10 Mar 2018, 01:18

Jake,

You should wear your glasses from the time you wake up, until you go to bed.

You are pretty nearsighted or shortsighted the Medical term is Myopia. Lots of people have Myopia it is corrected by the 1st number in your prescription using Minus lenses. Let me explain your prescription:

By tradition, the top row is for your Right Eye. Sometimes it will be designated as OD (Oculus Dexter) (from the Latin).

OD Sphere -3.50, Cylinder -1.5, Axis 135 degrees, Prism 6, BO (Base Out)

The bottom row is your Left Eye. Sometimes it is designated as OS (Oculus Sinister)

OS Sphere -2.75, Cylinder -1.25, Axis 100degrees, Prism 6, BO (Base Out).

Sphere, in your prescription, corrects your Myopia which is usually caused by your eyeballs growing a little too much. More about that later.

Cylinder corrects what is called Astigmatism. Astigmatism is a bit hard to understand, but it messes up your vision at all distances, near and far. It is usually caused by your Cornea, that is the clear part of your eye that is the first part you see. If you can imagine this, it should be evenly shaped like a slice from the side of a glass marble or sphere. If you have Astigmatism the curvature is not even. It is a steeper curve in one direction than it is in the other. Image a glass American Football. Astigmatism would look like a slice from the side of the glass football.

The Axis is the direction of the Long Axis of the Cylinder. By tradition, the 0 degree Axis is Horizontal. If you are looking at the glasses wearer, the degrees increase in a Counter or Anti Clockwise direction to 90 degrees is Vertical and one around to 180 degrees (same as 0). By tradition, Axis numbers are NOT specified above 180 degrees.

Prism corrects you problem of seeing double or two images. Your eyes tend to turn inward or converge or cross. It is likely related to your very significant Myopia. More about that Later.

The Base Out (BO) specifies the direction of the Base of the Prism correction. You may have seen a prism in science class in school. Prisms can do a lot of things. One of which is break up white light into the spectrum of colors. It can also help you NOT see two images. Called fusing the images.

I would like to as you a few questions that will hep me explain how your vision works if you are interested.

1. Your age?

2. What is your grade or level in school?

3. Where do you live? Country and State or Province)

4. Have you taken any Math or Science classes?

I understand that you are concerned about wearing glasses. Almost everyone is apprehensive about getting glasses. Really, glasses are just tools to help you see better. There will be some questions and perhaps comments. Also, your siblings or friends will be curious and want to try them. That will only last a couple of days and that will be the end of it. Once other people are used to you wearing glasses, the only comment you will get is if you get a different frame style. If you get a prescription change, but keep the same frame style, they probably won't even notice.

You are in for a BIG surprise when you get your glasses. Without your glasses, everything beyond about 30 cm or 12 inches is pretty blurry. You can probably read or use a computer if you hold the book close or get close to the display. The reason your eye are trying to turn inward or converge is because you are used to holding things very close.

When you put on your glasses for the first time. You are going to see things that you have not seen clearly in a long time. Frankly, things may look a little distorted until you get used to wearing them. The reason for this is that Vision actually occurs in your brain, Your eyes are just biological cameras and they have been delivering distorted images to your brain and your brain has been fixing them for you. It will take your brain a few days to learn how to deal with images that are in focus. Don't let it worry you.

One thing that may happen, because your eyes are not used to having to focus close, you may have trouble at first reading or using a computer. Close things may be blurry. If that happens, there are ways to fix that until your Auto-Focus System (yes you have one) learns how to work again.

Having Myopia can mean that your focusing muscles have not had to do any work for a long time and they may be very weak and unable to focus. If you experience that, please let me know and I may be able to offer some suggestions.

Do you know what your siblings prescriptions are?

When are your glasses supposed to be ready?

There is lots more to learn about vision. You have a great adventure ahead of you.

C.


Jake 09 Mar 2018, 22:11

Hello

My siblings and I just got our first glasses a couple of days ago. I would like to know if you guys think I should wear them all the time or not. The doctor did not specify, nor did I remember to ask. He gave us or prescruptions, not quite sure what they mean. However, I do know that I apparently have the worst eyesight of all of us (my younger brother asked). The doctor was pretty shocked I did not already have glasses. I knew once I was asked to read the chart that I must have bad eyesight because I could only see black on the white at the top, but could not make out the "E." It kind of just looked like a black line. I also have a question about the part when the doctor opebs both eyes and asks if you see one or two images. After asking my siblings I realized I was the only one who saw two, also my siblings said their exam ended after that. Mine kept going with this long test using a bar and the doctor kept covering one eye and then the other again and again. My question is why did I see two while my siblings saw one? Also was the test part after that because I saw two? I kind of always wanted glasses, but now that I have them I am kind of nervous about wearing them. The numbers on my prescription chart are as follows: top row -3.5, -1.5, 135, 6, BO and the bottom row is -2.75, -1.25, 100, 6, BO.

Hi, I just got new glasses, and they look so different than any of my old glasses. The optician said they are called myodisks. Apparently they are all my insurance would get because of my prescription. Is that true? My prescription is -16.50, -10.75, 120 and -19.25, -11.5,145. Also, contacts are a no go for me.


Lou 23 Dec 2017, 13:14

Hi again

Hubby has commented on my change of glasses.

He said that he prefers the Superdry pair, because they are smaller (They are narrower rather than smaller overall) and more brightly coloured. Although my Karen Millen pair have a pattern, he reckons that the pattern isnt noticeable and they just look dark and plain.

Anyway, since he likes my Superdry pair better, I've swapped back. In my opinion, the Karen Millen pair are a little more sophisticated, so I think I'll wear them with smart outfits, keeping the Superdry pair for everyday wear.

Best wishes

Lou

Hi SoCal

Nice choice of frame, and I particularly like the emerald colour. Enjoy your new glasses.

Hi

Not exactly new glasses, rather a return to a previous style.

I've been wearing this style since February:

http://www.pretavoir.co.uk/superdry-ashleigh-102.html

Although I really like the dark tortoiseshell colour with a deep pink behind, I've never thought that the shape is quite right for my face shape, and have had my old glasses reglazed.

I'm now therefore wearing this style again:

https://en.specsavers.es/glasses/karen-millen-12

I've always really liked this style, and they are so light and don't keep slipping down my nose like the Superdry pair, despite having had them fitted loads of times.

All the best

Lou


SoCal 20 Dec 2017, 16:37

Just ordered a new pair of glasses because we needed to use our FSA $ before we lost it. I'm excited about these new glasses because they are fun and colorful. They are going to be a nice departure from the standard black or tortoise I always choose. I decided to stick with Moscot again but this time I went with emerald green. They will be fitted with poly lenses so I hope they look okay with the crystal frames.

Here are the frames I chose in the color Emerald.

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...or 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.

I recently got a couple new pairs from Coastal.com. My glasses collection is ridiculous - but that's another story! One pair gives me a slight headache - a sort of "pulling" feeling at the back of my eyes after a couple hours. I wonder if they made a mistake with that one, or theres some other reasons. 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. But they are different frame styles, slightly different lens sizes...
