I am looking into ordering contact lenses. I have my prescription in front of me, but I am confused as to how I should order them, First, I don’t know how to convert my eye measurements to contac lenses.
Ex. Left eye 20/40 Right eye 20/100. Secondly, when I order my lenses, do I order them with my measurements of corrective lenses or without?
Thanks for your question
You should have the refractive power of your eyeglasses and it should be there with your prescription. 20/40 and 20/100 is your visual acuity and it is nt the prescription. You should look for the power of sphere and astigmatism ( cylinder ) with axis.
