My old prescription from 2 yrs ago was:
OD - 12.00 -150 x 042
OS -11.50 -175 x 158
My new one is:
OD - 11.50 -150 x 042
OS -11,25 -150 x 158
I can tell I can't see as well as I was, and he did my exam and said as much, saying I needed to increase it slightly.
But from what I see, he reduced my prescription instead of increasing it as I expected. That is, unless the difference in the prescription is not as I perceive it. Certainly welcome anyone with optician experience to comment, as you can see I am functionally blind, and my glasses take 2 to 3 weeks to make and usually 3 or 4 tries before they are "right". So want to make sure my Ophthalmologist didn't write down the new prescription incorrectly.
Last time I had glasses made, the optician after several tries was frustrated and called my doctor. They agreed on a change to the prescription though I never actually saw what that was. Since it was over the phone, not sure if the Dr's office noted the change for last time. The nurse did put in my prescription on the phoropter when I came in, and she did the initial ballpark test. He came in and said it looked like I didn't need a new prescription, I said I had to have one anyway since I have a huge scratch on my Lens. That was when he did the complete exam and said I did need to slightly increase it. (as I certainly could tell anyway). So just wondering if he was basing his whole analysis on the old, incorrect prescription from the beginning and whether I should go back to him or my old optometrist instead to get a second opinion. Thanks!
