Definition Of Pure Cylinder 5 In The Eye.?
my eyes are pure cylinder 5 and minus one, what does that mean pure cylinder 5?
Hello Ardilah, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
In general, in the medical world there is no type of pure cylindrical eye disorder. Maybe what your ophthalmologist intended as a pure cylinder here is a cylindrical lens that will be made for the glasses you will be using.
Pure cylindrical lens is a cylindrical lens that is made so that the shadow of the object in front of the lens falls at different intersections when viewed from various angles. This lens is deliberately made so that when used it produces clear shadows in the eyes of people who use the lens.
As for the number 5 that is intended, is the strength of the cylindrical lens that will be made for you, which means that your eyes will only see an object clearly when assisted by the use of a lens with a power of 5 diopters (lens strength units) in front of your eyes.
However, it is highly recommended that you inquire about this further with your eye doctor because he understands better about your eye condition and he writes the diagnosis.
I hope this helps.
