    Received my first pair of glasses....

    that I ordered today from ....

    pm me if interested !

    They came in a nice case. I paid about 20$ for normal lenses. There
    you can plug in your own values for Rx.

    The OD gave me this for full strength glasses.

    Sphere Cylinder Axis
    OD (right) -300 -025 180
    OS (Left) -350 -050 180

    I ordered these, which I evened out for sphere and cylinder. In
    theory I am hoping to even unassisted vision out. I also read that
    lazy eye could occur if both eyes don't see the same thing. Have to
    do more research on that.

    Sphere Cylinder Axis
    OD (right) -100 -025 180
    OS (Left) -100 -025 180

    and you need to know your PD-Pupillary Distance in mm. Mine was

    I notice that they are very lightweight and flexible even with the
    chrome finish. I put them on and I can see with them at the range I
    want. Just enough to work on the computer at home and tomorrow I will
    test them at work which is computer work again, but I needed a little
    bit on range for seeing all my charts for billing.

    Tv watching is fine from 10 ft. The words on screen are slightly
    blurred, just the way I want it for therapy.

    I am now tempted to see if Cylinder and Axis part of the Rx would
    help me see about the same distance with +1 lenses which I could order
    for an experiment, since no one could tell me how to make a Rx out of
    plus lenses. Not just put plus lenses over minus lenses. Makes me
    think glasses should be given Rx for +3/+2/+1/-1/-2/-3 up or down to
    where you need to be with both sides even. Or something adjustable to
    do some real therapy.

    Where from did you ordered these glasses ?
    (if I may ask). It is a nice price if
    the lens are not plastic (easily scratched)
    and if the price includes shipping.

    I guess one can easily order glasses from the far east
    with no questions asked about "who gave this prescription".

    Lazy eye (amblyopia) is not a risk if you are over age 12.
    Your cyl is so small that it will make virtually no difference compared to
    +1 alone, if you mean to order +1.00 -0.25 x 180. You can buy +1 sphere
    ready made at any drug store.

    Not just put plus lenses over minus lenses. Makes me
    How far away do you want to see clearly? +1 OU for you would be equivalent
    to +4 for an emmetrope and give you a furthest clear point at 12 to 18
