Success with Bates method -- from -8 diopters
#5
catsup Wrote:My prescription from another optometrist 3 years ago was -6.00 x -2.00 x 05 / -4.25 x 2.50 x 1.75.

Recently I went to an ophthalmologist for an eye exam. He found after measuring my vision several times with the optometry machine (including with dilation) that my current prescription is -7.25 x 1.75 x 0.95 / -6.00 x 1.75 x 0.70

Just so you know, the two prescriptions are written in different forms, the first one in minus cyl, the second in plus cyl. To compare both in minus cyl form:

Your three year old prescription:
R -6.00 -2.00 x 005
L -4.25 -2.50 x 175

Your newer:
R -5.50 -1.75 x 005
L -4.25 -1.75 x 150

So they are both similar and your eyes likely have stabilized.
