Question
Hi Doctor,

I have a question for my clarification.

I had a brand new crizol specs which i lost it. so i went to a nearby hospital to check and change the glass. my new prescription is given below
  SPH   CYL   Axis
Right Eye   -2.50   -0.75   170
Left Eye   -2.50   -0.50   60

I was using a cheap glass. then this morning i found the lost one and i was trying to use the crizol i sense some difference but no head ache and all when i check with near by optician its found that there is a difference in axis by 10. can i continue the same glass or do i need to buy a new lens with the new prescription.

Please advise.

Thanks in advance,
sabaresh.

Answer
Hi Sabaresh,

sorry i was on a holiday with no internet access !.

Sometimes for people with cylindrical number like in your case, a change of 10 degrees in the axis also can make a big difference !

make sure you ask him to put both glasses and check them once more before deciding which one suits you the best.
