Hi, 

I have -1.50 power(cylindrical) in both my eyes

Question

 

 

Hi,
I have -1.50 cylindrical power in both my eyes. Doctor suggested that I wear toric lens of -1.25 power(Bausch and lomb).

But my vision would get blurry every time I stepped into dim light area, I consulted my doctor about this, he said my eyes seemed fine. Now doctor says that I can use regular lens (spherical) of power -0.75, which I tried, but I could not see clearly.

Is it okay if I tried to get -1.25 spherical? Would it harm my eyes/vision?

Thanks in advance!

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

You said that you have 1.5 cylinder power in you eye so why you are using, 0.75 spherical power. Did visual acuity test show that you have cylinder and spherical refractive errors ?

Blurry vision at night or in room with dim light might by due to dry eyes. Lubricant eye drops can be helpful
