Question

 

 

Hi,

My O.D SPH is -2.75 D. My O.D CYL is -1.25 D. My O.D AXIS is 004

My O.S.  SPH is -4.75 D.My O.S  CYL is -0.50 D. My O.S AXIS is 150.  

What does that mean?

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

OD means right eye, OS means left eye. You have myopia in both eyes with astigmatism. Myopia in right eye is -2.75 D while in left eye is -4.75 D. Astigmatism in right eye -1.25 D is and in left eye -0.50 D. Axis means the direction of astigmatism.

You should wear your eyeglasses all the time even when you read otherwise you will have headache and eye strain. Instead of eyeglasses you can wear contact lens or do lasik eye surgery.
