I am myopic. For a couple of years, I've noticed that my present\nglasses don't work very well; specifically, to focus on anything from\nthe tv set to infinity, I have to hold my glasses two to four inches\naway from my face. I recently had my eyes examined, and got a\nprescription for glasses that was a couple of diopters less in absolute\nvalue than my previous prescription (the one my present glasses are\nbased on). For example, my current glasses have -3.25 on one eye, and\nthe new script says -2.75.\nMy question- since I'm myopic, I should have a diverging lens\n(according to what I've read on the internet). Wouldn't moving my\nglasses away from my face increase the total divergence, and wouldn't\nthat indicate that I need a stronger, not a weaker lens? Or am I\nthinking about something backwards?\nI'm very reluctant to spend a couple of hundred dollars on glasses that\nmight be worse than what I have, so I'd like to be sure.\nThanks for any insights.
