I had a general check up yesterday to get a contact prescription. I had one years ago but stopped wearing them. I purchased new glasses (with a prescription I cannot remember) in 2017.
They sent me home with two brands of trial contacts. These trial contacts are
OS: -3.25 BC: 8.6 DIA: 14.0
OD: -3.75 BC: 8.6 DIA: 14.0
I put them in and immediately noticed my right eye while it was okay vision, didn't seem better than my glasses. I put in my left eye and that one was incredibly blurry. I'm talking I need to get within 5 feet to read one inch tall text clearly while my right eye is 8-10 feet. I decided to check the prescription on the sheet the doctor gave me (which the sheet is labeled “eyeglass Rx”)
OS: -3.00 CYL: -0.50 Axis: 067
OD: -3.50 CYL: -0.50 Axis: 093
And under special instructions AR Coating: Yes
I know glasses and contact prescription are usually different however I thought the glasses rx is usually stronger. Am I missing something here?
