I bought new frame and was sent to update my prescription (by state law has to be done once a year).
So, I was perfectly happy with my old prescription, but optician changed it dramatically (astigmatism correction) for left eye. I am very uncomfortable with new prescription - everything is sharper, but smaller and like under microscope, gives me headache and dizziness, so I just want to close my eyes or remove glasses.
My old prescription: OD -5.75, -.50, 007
OS - 5.25, -.75, 163
New: OD -5.75, -.75, 12
OS -5.25, -2.0, 170
Is it ok to make such change not in .25 or .75, but 1.25?
