Definitly time for a specialist. Have they tried prisims on his lenses? Is there any type of eye surgery he can have? An old acquaintance used to wear contacts & glasses(no idea what her specific issues were). She ended up with some sort of eye surgery & only had to wear contacts after that.
If he didn't see a tractor that's major & I would keep him from driving.
I am nearsighted too & have a slight astigmatism. My nearsightedness is bad, -7 & -8.25 though I know something has changed & I have to get rechecked. My astigmatism doesn't affect enough to need correction in my lenses. They've changed the charts since my last exam, but at an exam I can't see the big E with my glasses off.
My mom, otoh, is nearsighted but has a bad astigmatism. Her nearsightedness is not bad, -3 & -4. Her astigmatism is horrible though & she has prisims put on her lenses to help with it, though they no longer help as much & she has some muscle issues now.
