Question: sir, I am a male of 35 years. I checked my eyes in 25 May 2013 and brought the glass accordingly(Glass prescription is attached here with this query). After one month I again checked my eyes and the power was the same so the doctor advised me to use the same glass and check it again after 6months. After 6 months the power was still same and the doctor told me to use the same glass. I was wearing the glass only when it was required not all the time. Even if I was not using glass since 1 year(Only distant letters were not readable otherwise I was able to read the nearby letters.). Today I again checked my eyes with the same glass and the doctor told me that there is not any change in my eyes so i may use the same glass. But when I saw today's eye prescription then I discovered a change in axis(previously axis was 85 in right and 100 in left eye but in today's prescription it is 80 in right and 90 in left eye). I afraid that my glass is made as the previous prescription (axis 85 in right eye and 100 in left eye) but if I use the same will it hamper my eye sight ??? Is my eye sight is going to be worsen if I use the same glass ??? Does the axis factor of glass matter for eye sight worsening ???(both of the eye prescriptions are attached with this query)

Brief Answer:
Wrong axis can cause visual disturbances

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Sir.

I can understand your concerns.

I have gone through your attached reports as well.

Yes, certainly it not safe to use eye glasses with different axis.

This may cause difficulty in vision overall and further worsening as well.

I advise you to get a vision check up in a different eye center and use the appropriate glass parameters.

Post your further queries if any.
Thank you.
