Eye Exam Sphere Cylinder Axis
Eye glass measures: The sph is the sphere. This is the amount of nearsightedness or farsightedness, measured in units called diopter. Cyl is cylinder. This is the amount of astigmatism. Astigmatism is created when the cornea is not shaped evenly...Egg instead of a ping pong ball. There are other causes of astigmatism. The axis is an angle that indicates where the astigmatism is located. ...Read more
An eye exam consists of checking the vision. If this is not normal a manifest refraction is done to determine if any glasses are needed. This is the test where the patient is asked which lens is better number one or two. Then the health of the eye is evaluated with a microscope called a slit lamp. To be able to see the back of the eye, the retina, ...Read more
My prescription is right eye- Sph +1.75. Cyl -2.00 axis 104. Left eye- +.25. Cyl -.25. axis 115. Add +2.00. Can I get away without glasses??
Probably but: its important to check with your state DMV as to the minimum vision requirements for driving. In most states, if you are 20/40 or better without glasses, you are fine. Your left eye prescription is minimal. Otherwise, if you feel like you function well without glasses then don't bother. Be safe. ...Read more
My perscription for glasses: OD -0.5 D Cyl ax95 OS -0.5 D Cyl ax70. Because there are no toric lenses -0.5, what power spherical contacts can I wear?
My daughter's eye prescription is od -3.00 sphere +2.00 cylinder 110 aaxis and os -6.00 sphere +2.50 cylinder 30 axis what does this mean?
OD is right eye,: OS is left eye. The first #s. sphere, are negative, meaning she is nearsighted. The second #s (cylinder) is the amount of astigmatism that is present. Since astigmatism means the eye is focusing light at an angle, astigmatism comes with a rotation axis. The cylinder is rotated to this axis so that the light can be focused straight on. ...Read more
Spectacle power is RE -5.25 SPH -1.50 CYL 180 AXIS LE -5.50 SPH -1.50 CYL 180 AXIS. Age 32 What do you suggest for long term good health of my eye?
Annual exam: Because your eye is more nearsighted than average, you may have a longer eyeball which can put you at higher lifetime risk for retinal detachment. Have an annual dilated fundus exam to detect any weak spots in the retina. Sometimes the weak spots are repaired prophylactically. If you have warning signs of a dark curtain coming over the vision, flashes of light, or new floaters, go see the eye MD. ...Read more

Am I a candidate for Lasik? Right eye: SPH -6.50, CYL -1.75, Axis 003 // Left eye: SPH -4.75, CYL -1.50, Axis 003.
Probably : This prescription is one that Lasik could certainly correct but it depends on how thick your cornea is in each eye. Whether you are a candidate or not also depends on other medical factors such as Eye dryness and history of previous by infections. ...Read more
I'm 43 and feeling eye strain lately. My prescription in both eyes: sphere +25, -.50 cylinder, od axis 85, os axis 105 with a +1.00 add. Will glasses help?
Not equivalent: 6/6 is the metric system equivalent of 20/20 in Snellen notation. If your eyeglasses correction is -2.00, then you will not see the 6/6 line with the uncorrected eye. If wearing -2.00 allows you to see that line, then you probably have normal, healthy eyes with a little need for optical correction only. ...Read more
I have astigmatism. My perscription: OD -0.5 D Cyl ax 95 and OS -0.5 D Cyl ax 70. Can I safely wear -0.5 ordinary spherical contacts instead of toric?
Lasik results. Pre-op myopia. Left eye now +0.5, with -0.5 astig. Right eye -0.125 with slight astig. Right eye strains close up/distance. What to do?
It depends : How long ago did you have the surgery. You may need some time if you eyes will adjust post operatively. Because of asymmetry between the two eyes refraction you may have some eye strain. Your refraction is very minimal, the time may help with goos lubrication. If your symptom persist or get worse pls see your surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Use monovision w/some blurring at distance & computer. Could single vision contact for distance eye & bifocal contact for near eye improve vision?
Monovision: is very effective of roost people. Variations for the optimum distance (far, intermediate and near) can be obtained through single vision contact lenses or a combination of single vision lens and multifocal lens. Your eye care provider will be able to determine the power and variations from your examination. Be sure to verbalize your needs and illustrate to him/her the distances involved. ...Read more
My eye power pres. Is, od:sphere+0.75cylinder-1.00. Axis 120, os:+1.00.-0.75., 075. Add.+2.50.What power reading glass(temporary one, drug store)?
+2.50: +2.50 would probably be the closest, but try them on. Pick the weakest ones that let you read at a comfortable distance. Remember, the stronger the glasses, the closer you have to hold the reading material and the smaller the range of vision. So, for a computer distance you might try a 1.25. ...Read more
Different areas: Basically each eye can be near (myopic) or far sighted (hyperopic) and then have loss of reading vision (presbyopic). Glasses can correct for the distance vision on top and then have additional reading power to help with near vision on the bottom. These terms are confusing as someone who is farsighted could have blurry vision at all distances and not see far. It would be best to ask your eyedoc. ...Read more
