Cylindrical Power In Eyes Symptoms
I was diagnosed with a spherical +.075 power and cylindrical -.1.90 power for both my eyes. Is that very bad?
OnlyMeans NotPerfect: Focus. Values=magnification, in diopters, which examiner felt were effective to compensate focus (from what you said: clearer vs. Less clear) & better read characters. The Phoropter used to arrive at values=simply an arrangement of lenses (quickly changeable glasses, if you will) used, trial & error, to rapidly check what worked better at time checked. Spherical=overall; cylinder+axis=astigmatism. ...Read more
My son was 6 yrs old and he was told that he has -0.75 cylindrical power in both the eyes. Will it increase? How to reduce it?
Myopia: Well, you cannot change your son's myopia, he has been born with it. It is very important to make certain his eyes are developing normally and that he receives the proper prescription spectacles when he needs them. To that end, make sure he sees a pediatric ophthalmologist routinely & then you can be reassured that his vision is maturing on pace with his age. A well fitted spectacle is very likey. ...Read more

My son is 5yr & both eyes has -1.50 cylindrical power. Right eye axis is 10 & left eye 175. Is Spec needed at this age or can cure through right diet?
Astigmatism.: Your specialist was referring to astigmatism which is a situation where your eye is not perfectly round like a basketball, but it is slightly ob-longed in one direction as in comparison to a football. This is very normal and almost every one has some amount of astigmatism, depending on how precisely you measure the difference in two different axis's. ...Read more
I have given a 0.5 cylindrical power in my left eye with 20° axis. My question is should I need to wear a spects.
Depends: If you otherwise see well enough without spectacles in with both eyes, you likely can just monitor your vision. Astigmatism tends to have more symptoms of blur of too high and especially at nighttime. 0.5 cylinder at 020 degrees axis is low order, but oblique in nature, which also tends to be more symptomatic. Have your eyes monitored. You can always wear spectacles if your vision is blurry. ...Read more

I have a sph power of -0.75 in left eye and -1 in right eye. My right eye also has cylindrical power of -0.5, axis 100. Should I wear glasses always?
Your choice: Glasses are an optical improvement but not a medical item. If you need the clarity of vision these glasses can provide, then by all means wear them. But you do no harm living with a little blur and your powers indicate that reading should be no issue at all. Either way, the health of the eyes will not compromised. ...Read more
What is Keratoconus, I went for general eye check up have a little cylindrical power 1.75 (LE) 2.25 (RE), doctor suspected for KC worried help, me pls?
Examination: First of all, keratoconus is mostly a sporadic disease with an incidence of 1:2000. It is bilateral & not due to inflammatory conditions. Less frequently it's due to hereditary factors. Corneal topography is very helpful in diagnosing the condition, although other clinical signs are picked up during examination. Improving vision generally requires ridged contact lenses, although some néed surgery. ...Read more
I wear glasses cylinders 0.25. Why do my eyes often feel like get something in my eyes, and itching? How do I treat it?
Really???: That is virtually a no prescription glasses! I would not have personally placed 0.25 diopters of astigmatism in any glasses! It is too little to help and more likely to irritate one's vision. The eye strain may be your issue! Wear the glasses solid for 1-2 weeks. If not better, they may need to be redone without the astigmatism. ...Read more
I have astigmatism on both eyes, with left eye a cylinder of 1.0 I am told there are no brands with 1.0 which makes it blurry. What can I do?
0.75 OK: If you are referring to contact lenses, then one with a cylinder of 0.75 would be fine. The number does not have to be exact, and the contact lens itself will mask the final 0.25. ...Read more

I have right sphere -5.5 cylinder -0.5 axis 175. Shall I need tropical or bifocal lense for right eye?
Probably not: At your age I assume the power for the left eye is similar. You would need ordinary spectacles and do not have to consider multifocals until you reach your 40s. ...Read more
I have eye floaters and their shapes have turned cylindrical and segmemted like a worm. This was the first time they looked like this. What to do?
What does a sphere number of +0.50 and cylinder number of -0.25 mean (axis 179 degrees) (left eye is +0.25, -0.25, 14 degrees respectively)?
Eyeglass powers: These are small numbers and probably means the vision of this person is good without glasses. The first number (sphere) is whether a magnifying or minifying lens is needed. The cylinder is the amount of ovalness and the axis is the orientation of the oval (vertical is 90 degrees and horizontal 180 degrees and other numbers are in between). ...Read more
