    Hi, I wear eyeglasses, which is about 10 years old, I like to get a new
    pair, the current eyeglasses work ok, the left eye see quite well, but
    the right eye seems can't focus well, if I cover my left eye and look
    at computer screen, my right eye can't read the text. I went see a
    optometrist, here are the old (10 years old) and new eys exam results:


    old result:

    right: -2.50, -1.25, 171
    left: -4.25, -0.75, 17

    new result:

    right: -2.25, -1.50, 170
    left: -4.50, -1.00, 30

    now I am a bit confused, seems like the biggest change is on the left
    eye, which looks just fine, the right eye I don't see anything changed
    much (I don't know what these numbers mean), which is the reason I like
    to get a new pair of eyeglasses in the first place. if with the new
    prescription my right eye still can't see clearly, I am concerned. the
    optometrist said he doesn't know why my right eye can't see clearly
    like my left. any suggestions appreciated!

    Does this happen with the old glasses?

    If not, suspect that the new glasses aren't correct.

    I haven't got my new glasses yet, both tests are done without
    eyeglasses, wearing my old pair my right eye can't see clearly, I plan
    to get a new pair using new prescription, problem is the new
    presciption changes the "left eye", not much difference on the right
    eye. the old glasses is made by "zeiss" lab which I think (hope)
    shouldn't make much errors :p, it's the eye exam results that I mostly
    worry about
