What do the numbers on the prescription mean?
The dr. told me I have an astigmatism (so I'm nearsighted) and I'm farsighted too. Is the prescription below THAT bad? I'm also 6 months pregnant so I am weary of getting glasses since my eyes may change afterwards. Not sure what to do. The dr. didn't mention anything about my eyes changing since I am pregnant.
Here is my script....
Sphere Cylinder Axis
+075 -050 170
+075 -050 010

Just looking at your spherical power (+.75 in both eyes), I might classify you as farsighted. If you were a -.75, you would probably be nearsighted. You do have an astigmatism in both eyes (-.50) but that does not mean that you are nearsighted. The astigmatism correction has nothing to do with whether you are near or farsighted. People have astigmatism because their eyeballs tend to be more "football" shaped rather than perfect "globe" shape. Your astigmatism is very light. I have had experience with patients with astigmatisms as high as -4.00. Whether you are myopic/ hyperopic/ presbyopic also depends on what type of prescription the doctor wrote for you. It could be for reading only, Mid-range, distance only, or reading AND distance, or all of the above. Your prescription in general is very mild. And yes, I have heard of pregnancy often changing the woman's eyeglass prescription.

You have several options here. 1) get your eyes checked again and get glasses after you give birth. 2) get glasses now and if after you have the baby you feel like you can't see, go back and have your eyes re-checked. 3) go to the drug store and get you some over the counter "readers" that are a +.75 magnification power. They will NOT correct your astigmatism, but they may help you see up close better for the meantime if you're strapped for cash.
