When I first got glasses, my prescription was a lot weaker. Even when I first got contacts, my eyes were better. Since I haven't made any changes to how I use corrective lenses since then, it's really easy to forget that my eyes have gotten worse. Easy to forget until I put my glasses on over my contacts. People used to accuse me of having fake glasses since they couldn't see any difference. They wouldn't anymore. I still consider my eyes to not really be so bad, but I wonder if that's even true. There will always be people with worse eyes than mine, but is it time I admit that I have bad vision?
Mostly it doesn't matter, but perhaps I'm lying when I say, "My eyes aren't really so bad." Where's that objective line? On the spectrum from perfect vision to blind, what is less than perfect but not yet "bad?"
Glasses: sphere:-1.50/-2.00 Cylinder: -0.50/-0.50 Axis: 0.90/0.75 [these last numbers are for astigmatism correction]
Contacts:-1.75/-2.25 In both cases, the left eye is weaker.
Really, I don't care how bad they are now as long as they don't get worse. I wouldn't even mind that so much as long as my vision/astigmatism doesn't get too bad for contacts.
If I started wearing glasses earlier, I think it would bother me less. But as it is, my eyes getting worse make me feel like I'm
