One Eye Near Sighted The Other Is Far Sighted
Anisometropia: Any big difference in eyeglass power (>2.50) is called anisometropia, and makes it difficult to wear glasses successfully. Often the patient wears contacts. If the difference in near and farsightedness (example r eye -0.50 and l eye +0.50, difference 1.00) is small, then the fact that one is slightly near and the other is slightly far shouldn't bother the patient too much. ...Read more

Location of focus: Near sighted means you see better at near and your distance vision is blurry. Far sighted is just the opposite. In near sighted eyes, the image is brought into focus in front of the retina and a diverging lens is needed to push the image backward to focus on the retina.

Is it harmful to your vision if one lens is closer to the eye than the other lens to the other eye? I guess my L & R ear-eye distance isn't the same
More important that: both eyes work together so you can SEE out of both eyes and have binocular vision. Has nothing to do with ear to eye distance. If only one eye sees, or is pointing to an ear, there is something wrong. You'll need to see an eye surgeon to have this examined further. The interpupillary distance varies between individuals but it's our binocular vision that let's us see stereoscopically in 3-D. ...Read more
