Hallo! I am 47 yrs.old. Recently my reading glasses were changed, the earlier was RE -1.25 SPH, +2.00 CYL Axis 175. LE -0.75 SPH and +1.00 CYL Axis 5. Current power is RE -0.75 SPH and +2.00 CYL and Axis is 170 LE -0.25 SPH and +1.00 CYL and Axis is 5. Has my eyesight improved ? How did it get reduced? Thankyou. A.G
