Confused with eye prescription?
Hi all, I am hoping you can help me with my recent eye prescription. I have known for a while now that my left eye is lazy (although it doesn't look it, it just doesn't do much work) and my right eye makes up for the left eye. I thought I was short sighted as I find looking at things in the distance harder than focusing on things close up. I can read etc. without aid, but cannot read signs far away that other people can read. My optician has told me I am far sighted, my glasses do make things close up more clear and they help with distance, however I feel the distance could be better.
Aided VA: Dist: 6/4.5 Near: N5
Aided VA: Dist: 6/6 Near: N5
I have tried doing some research and I think + means can't see close up and - means can't see distance. My Sph is + and Cyl is -, does that mean my prescrition says I am both?
eyeprescription.com says my right eye is mixed astigmatism and my left is Compound hyperopic astigmatism.
Should I wear my glasses all the time for both near and distance? Or just near?
Thanks for your help.
I don't know what my visual acuity is without glasses. My visual acuity with glasses is 6/6 for left eye and 6/4.5 for right eye. I was told my right eye is between lenses.
