    Finally got a new pair of glasses, everything's in HD now :daydreaming:
    I find it's a bittersweet feeling: I can see the world perfectly...but it also means I'm one step closer to being blind. :lol:

    Just wondering, do people after having laser eye surgery see as well as they do with glasses on?

    Tbh I'm not sure, but assuming that both glasses/contacts and laser eye surgery aim to correct vision to 20/20, then no. But being to lie down and see clearly simultaneously would be great

    Might consider getting contacts so I don't have to act like an owl with all the head swiveling

    I presume my glasses are correct to 20/20 then... It's incredible how clear everything is! I can count the number of bricks on a building quite far away and without glasses it's like looking at a blur :lol: If you don't mind me asking, how severe is your myopia?

    Haha ikr, when I got glasses for the first time I was like 'Wow, I can actually see my friends' faces without looking like I've swallowed a lemon' Um it's about average, -1.75 and -2.25. What about you?

    I have no idea what any of this means but...
    I don't have any numbers in the 'Near' row but in the 'Distance row':

    Right:
    Sph -1.50
    Cyl -0.50
    Axis 165.0

    Left:
    Sph -1.25
    Cyl -0.50
    Axis 170.0

    It's a pain. Myopia does tend to get worse as you grow so hopefully it should stabilise somepoint after you turn 20.
    But I'm not an expert guys

    Sph is Sphere, the 'power' of your lenses (measured in diopters) needed to correct your vision. The larger the negative number, the more short-sighted you are. Likewise, from 0 onward the bigger the positive number the more long-sighted you are. That was my prescription I gave you from the top of my head so I'm not sure if it's right, but since my Spheres are larger neg numbers, you'll be pleased to know my eyesight's worse than yours lol.
    Cyl is Cylinder, also measured in diopters, which is how much astigmatism you have. Astigmatism is uneven focusing due to the cornea or lens not being a perfectly curved shape, so the light rays do not meet at one focus. Not all people have it, but it's quite common. (Including moi)
    Axis is just an angle that describes where the astigmatism is taking place. It's important as to how the lenses are placed in the frame.

    Ooh, that was really interesting, thanks! I've covered lenses in Physics recently but I'm not too big a fan of it
