I have fine vision but I've been getting some eye strain using my computer. I got some cheap readers, settling on 1.50, and they've worked really well to reduce eye strain for me. But when using the computer, I obviously have to lean forward, so I also got some intermediate-distance readers online (using the same 1.50).
Well, they got here today, and they seem to be exactly the same as the cheap readers. If anything, the cheap readers are actually better. Using the intermediate ones my computer screen is actually blurry w/ normal posture, where with the cheap readers it's a little blurry, but not as much as the new intermediate readers. They have the same distance where things are most clear, which is abt 18 in. My computer sits at 26-28 in from my face.
Did I screw up? Or did they? Did I need to put a different sph for the intermediate distance? When I ordered them, I put sph 1.50, cyl 0, add 0. Or did they screw up and accidentally give me near-distance reading lenses instead of intermediate-distance? I looked all over the place for info before ordering, as I've never worn glasses before, and I didn't see anything other than 'order intermediate ones for computer use and normal reading ones for reading use'. I didn't think there was an adjustment period for reading glasses that aren't bifocal/progressive/etc, and there certainly wasn't for the cheap ones.
(And yes, I will be having an eye check up soon, but I haven't had access to vision insurance and won't for a few months. I just want to know if I screwed up on ordering or if they gave me the wrong lenses)
