I went for a check up with my opthalmologist the other day. I noticed that my vision had become worse and I was right. I'm having new glasses made that were sent out. It will take two weeks for them to come in because of the lenses that I need. They were sent out to a lab. My new prescription will be -7.25 and -7.00 with 50 prism base out so split between both eyes is 25 prism. My prescription also may have to be even stronger than that because I noticed with the corrective lenses my left eye was still blurry. I rushed because I was there for over three hours and had class that day. I'm going to call them on monday to try making sure I have the correct prescription that I need. Without my glasses my vision is 20/800 and with the glasses that I was wearing I was at 20/70. I'm nearsighted and read at newspaper print my doctor told me. For those who don't know what prism is, it is a type of lens that bends light. It moves things for people who have double vision. One prism diopter is equivilent to one centimeter. Prism is not made into contacts. I was told that my glasses are going to look ridiculous because of the fifty prism diopters that my vision requires. My glasses are going to be made even thicker than before. I obviously have to wear my glasses constantly. I can't have contacts made because prism isn't made into contacts. Please do not suggest any surgeries or Lasik because not only do I not like the idea of something inside of my eyes but also I know a lot of people still need glasses afterwards. Lasik will not help me with my eyes crossing. I have a muscle spasm in my eyes and a muscle problem. My vision flucuates. My question is will my prescription make my eyes appear smaller and how thick or ridiculous will I look wearing 50 prism split between both eyes?
Update: Your answers are very rude and disrespectful. I'm disappointed in consideration that you refer to yourselves as opticians. I asked this question looking for a serious answer, not your arrogant remarks. I currently have been wearing -5.00 and -5.25 with 30 prism split between both eyes. My new prescription is stronger and has increased by 20 more prism diopters. I can imagine this will make a noticeable difference with my glasses. Also when I was looking out of -7.25 the letters looked very tiny. This is why I am asking what my glasses will look like because I would like to know. There has been a jump in my prescription. If you have nothing nice to say then simply don't respond to my question. Quite honestly I am glad I do not have you as eye doctors because you sound like idiots and are jerks. Perhaps you should learn more about your own professions.
Best Answer: Like what degree prism are you using now, (I find it hard to believe you suddenly needed 25* for each eye all at once) I'm thinking your new glasses will be only "slightly more ridiculous" than whatever you are currently wearing.
*Not even sure this # for prism is even possible, maybe there is some confusion about the numbers, anyway, peoples' eyes just don't get like super-bad all at once, the new glasses are probably only a little stronger than the ones you are already wearing so I wouldn't obsess over it much.
Katrina, please chill:
The problem is, we can't predict exactly what your glasses are going to look like, the thickness will depend not only on the prescription but, on how big the frames are and what index of lens you are getting and even your PD. It would be best to ask whoever you are getting the glasses from about this as they would know your particular situation best. Some of the places even have a sort of computer program that will estimate lens thickness (not sure if your place has it or not). Keep in mind, you were the one that broached the subject "...how thick or ridiculous will I look..."so, there is no reason to be getting all upset about peoples' answers on that topic. As for the letters looking tiny, when there is a significant jump in the power of glasses for nearsightedness, things will look smaller, but your brain will get accustomed to the new glasses within a week or two (I know how this works because had this same thing happen a couple years ago). I'm not sure exactly what the effect of the stronger prisms will be because my glasses don't need them, but if you have gotten used to your existing glasses, you should be able to get used to the new ones too.
