We consider intervention for eyes that look bad or are hurting. See your ophthalmologist to assess your current situation and you should be seen regularly to protect the remaining eye. ...Read more

I don't know : You have myopic astigmatism in both eyes, left more than right. This alone doesn't answer what you are actually seeing (vision) in each eye. Your eye doc can measure that in the office. Good luck and I hope you're seeing well with your spectacle correction. ...Read more
