    Hello everone,

    I am corresponding with an OD over email. He said:

    "I would NOT like her to have -1.00 lenses with -1.50 astigmatism... I am OK with her having plus undercorrection to plano -1.50 in both eyes...
    When the PO suggests minus lens over-correction or surgery... that is the time to make the trip to see me. "

    Can you please explain

    minus over-correction
    plus under-correction

    Thank you.
