Question

 

 

 

Hi,

I just have a quick question. I have two current eye exams, overlapped by about three months.

My contact prescription:

OD: -1.50/-1.25/170

OS: -1.50/-1.25/020

My Eyeglasses prescription:

OD: -1.50/-1.25/170

OS: -1.50/-1.25/016.

On my new eye exam they added -0.25 to the cylinder on the glasses, but left the contacts the same. Shouldnt the contacts have been changed with it?

Thanks

Thanks for your Question

They should do that but if you don't feel any visual differences between the eyeglasses and the contact lens or eye strain then no need to add it.
