Why can't the optimitrist correct my vision to 20/20?
I received my new prescription eyeglasses yesterday and I can't see any better with the new ones as I could with the old ones. I asked the technician and she said that my vision was corrected to 20/30 in the left eye and 20/60 in the right eye. Why can't they make lenses that give me perfect vision?

Nah Z
20/60 corrected vision is absolutely nowhere near normal. You need to be seeing an ophthalmologist to figure out if there's a non-refractive disease causing the decrease in BCVA.

so as to let your eye feel better?too much pressure on the eye may hurt them

you may have a condition that glasses cant fix. I have a condition where I have to wear bifocal contacts to see.

Astigmatism is a common one. it can only be cured with lasik. I do highly suggest getting the procedure done asap. The earlier you get it, the less chance you have of becoming blind later on in life.

See another doctor to start with but as odd as it might sound wear a eye cover for 3-4 hours on the good eye it will make the bad one grow a little stronger.

Do you have any eye problems that you have been diagnosed with ?

Like cataracts , or macula degeneration ?

For the tech to know you are only corrected to 20/60 , there must be a reason for it. I doubt they would leave you at that level on purpose if better vision was possible .

There must be a reason that they haven't communicated well enough to you.

20/20 isn't always possible, but there is always a reason why not.

You need to check with the optometrist what the expected acuity was and if less than 20/20, the reason why.

Not everyone can get 20/20, with even the best glasses, if there is something other than a focussing error limiting the vison in the eyes. But that would normally be mentioned during an examination, and referred for further assessment (if it hadn't already been noted and understood on a previous occasion).
This could be such things as cataracts, macular damage, lazy eye (amblyopia)... the list is almost endless.
but while 20/30 is the best some perfectly normal eyes can achieve, with 20/60 there almost has to be some underlying reason.

This doesn't include the other simple possibility that either the optometrist or the technician made an error in writing or reading the intended Rx. It happens, and can easily be checked and corrected.
