Slight Cylindrical power in both eyes. Reading glasses for Tv, Computer, Reading etc.

Question

 

 

Hi,

I'm seeing a shadow sort of a thing above objects. It doesn't happen all the time, but sometimes.

I have a slight cylindrical power for which I'm wearing glasses. I recently got my eyes checked. It's happening the maximum with distant objects even when I'm wearing my glasses.

When i cover my right eye, the phenomena is less but when I cover my left eye, it's the same as it was. Even the lights appear to be very flashy.

Can this be because of eye tiredness? Could you please recommend what should be done and is it something to worry about or not? Also, if you could tell me how can I correct this issue at home itself.

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

 

 

Most Likely you have something called shadow astigmatism in which multiple images are formed in retina. it seems that you have uncorrected cylinder. You have to visit your eye doctor again and recheck your refractive errors and eyeglasses.

Eye tiredness and dry eyes and also cause temporary cylinder. Try to use Lubricant Eye Drops.
