|I know what my glasses prescription is (-4.25 / -4.25), but what does that mean in terms of vision.
It's better than mine.lol
right eye is -6, left is -8. I can't see the big E. It's a blur of 3 lines.
My 7yo is getting glasses, they should be in next week. Hers are a -1 and a -1.25.
My moms eyes are worse than mine. My actual vision hasn't changed in 8 or 9 years but my astigmatism is getting worse which makes me need new lenses(so do the scratches,lol). Girls typically don't need glasses until they're 10ish so my dd is doomed to have my eyes.
Kids inherit 60% of their vision from their mother.
When I had my eyes checked last week with the correct lenses(mine aren't 100% due an astigmatism but it doesn't affect my vision) I can see 20/13 which is farsighted where a person ideally is. It's better than perfect vision. Without the astigmatism added I can still see 20/13 with my current prescription but it's slightly fuzzy.
The bigger the 2nd number the more you can't see far away(nearsighted).
Something to watch for it you have eyes like mine is spots in your vision or floaters. It's a sign that the virtous gel in your eyes is falling due to it being elongated. This started for me a few years ago, I don't see them anymore so it's fallen below the level of my eyesight. It is very common in nearsighted people. Unfortunatly it also increases the risk of retina detachment as it's pulled away too. So if you see any black curtains get into an eye specialist ASAP.
