Prescription Changed

Q: My prescription changed a lot and now I can't read text on the computer well?
Old and new Rx attached.

A: As I see your prescription did not change a lot, only 0.25 on each eye, so if you cannot read computer now it means there is another problem. Depends how old are you.

If you have more than 40-45 years old, I would say you have presbyopia and need close vision glasses. These are different diopters than the far vision lenses this is why you cannot see clearly at the computer.

If you are younger and have no presbyopia, I would say the glasses are the problem, so the prescription is not right, or the lenses are not mounted correctly in the frame.

Either way, you should visit your optometrist.

Hope this helps,
