45M, Myopia diagnosed at age 9. I'm 1 week in. Prior to this, had to wait far too long (plus 1 extra year, thanks COVID-19) to have an exam and have my prescription checked. Vision was noticeably strained & blurry. Fine print and product labels completely illegible without a magnifying glass, but road signs & driving still OK, though less so at night.
I've been getting used to the new lenses and, 90% of the time, they're spot-on perfect. Yeah, moving causes motion blur and stairs are no fun, but that's apparently par for the course. Walking around outdoors, everything looks great. Driving, everything looks great. Hand-held items, devices, labels, fine print, all sharp as can be. The screen at my desk, spot-on.
But I have a “fun” computer in the den (an old hand-me-down instead of using the laptop & a Chromecast to stream TV). When I use it as a computer, as I'm doing now, I can't quite get the text into focus no matter how big I make it.
Images & video are pretty good. But reading on this screen wears my eyes out, makes them water incessantly, and never gets sharp no matter which part of the lens I look from. I CAN read on it; it's just not pretty.
Things I've tried with some minor, but not complete success:
- Straightening the angle
- Inching closer
- Bigger font size
- It is worse when my eyes are tired, noticeably so… but persists, if less so, when they are fresh
All these things help, but nothing quite brings the text into focus, even at 40 point font (text is legible far smaller than that; I wanted to see if there was a point at which it got sharp; there isn't). It's an oldLCD TV, probably no more than 720p, roughtly 10 feet from my face. 55 inches.
All I want is opinions: Is this circumstantial, from what I'm trying to do, or is the prescription imperfect? Is there a way I could tell? It seems odd that I have basically zero issues anywhere but this one application.
