Use Of Eyeglasses Or Contact Lenses For Minus Eyes And Cylinders.?
, I want to ask my eye is minus 3.25 and cylinder 1.50, I want to use contact lenses or glasses? Which is better to use, many say the eyepiece is dangerous, so I’m a little confused
Good morning, thanks for the question
Astigmatism or astigmatism is a condition where the funds of the ray are not transmitted at the same focal point on all meridians due to abnormalities in the cornea or lens.
This condition can be corrected with glasses or contact lenses. Both have advantages and disadvantages of each. For comfort it is better with contact lenses because it attaches directly to the eye so that no field of vision is blocked, whereas if you use cylindrical glasses peripheral vision will look blurred. However contact lenses require higher care and costs compared to eyeglasses.
The type of contact lens for cylindrical eyes is also adjusted to the degree of severity due to several types of contact. There are types of torid, rigid, or hybrid. If you also have complaints of astigmatism and want to use contact lenses, it is advisable to consult an ophthalmologist to adjust the type and size of contact lenses that are suitable for your needs, because the selection of contact lenses for cylindrical eyes is not as simple as in general contact lenses.
That's all, hope you can help
