Question

 

 

Hi,

My left eye prescription is: - 2.0 D sphere and -0.50 D cylinder and 160 axis.

So which number i should have to use for left eye? because minimum -0.75 cylinder is available in the market for contact lenses and my is -0.5 cylinder in left eye.

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your question

The right thing to do if to follow up with an optometrist for contact lens fitting trail. In this trail the optometrist can determine if you can use -0.75 D astigmatism instead of -0.50 D. You can adapt -0.75 D but some people can have blurry vision, eye pain and headache
