How strong are your glasses/lenses?

Just curious. This year was the year that my decision to work with computers and then to work with them in a television environment got the better of me, and I have glasses.

Thing is they are only 0.25 in strength, which is the weakest you can get I think. Short sight in one eye and astigmatism in the other, but both 0.25. That said the difference is noticable, I can read the train boards in Charing Cross as I come through the door now

So if you have glasses how strong are they?

No idea, one lens is just plain glass, the other is like the bottom of a pint jar - very strong

Similar to puntomatt, plain in the left eye, but a medium strength in the right... don't ask me the value!!

-4.25 in one and -4.0 with astigmatism in the other.

I use extended-wear contact lenses, put them in on a Monday morning and leave them in until the following Saturday night / Sunday morning.

Ditto, prefer contacts meself, 5.25 - both eyes with a 0.5 prism in both (one plus one minus) to correct the astigmatism in both.

Mainly cos glasses, even with the poshest lenses out (Nikon), leave dents in yer nose at that measurement!!

We'll call it near on blind, eh?

Re: How strong are your glasses/lenses?

-5.75 right and -6.75 left. A friend said I must have good eyes to see through my glasses.

Contacts are the way for me though..

Re: How strong are your glasses/lenses?

Not too sure? Just know they are are useless bits of kit,(new ones await colection at VE) looking through my new milli-dot scope! Much better with the naked eye, setting focus,parallax,and magnification,with no glasses, all becomes clear, rather than boss-eyed crosses and dots with the things on.
