Just recently got a new script for my glasses. I've had an astigmatism ever since I can remember. But at no time did a new pair of glasses cause everything outside of the text I might read to go out of perspective: Tables slanted downward. Items in my peripheral vision were different from items in my front vision.
When I went back to Vision World to ask about it, the eye doctor said that that was the only way to correct for the way my astigmatism had changed over time.
So I chose to not have the correction, and now EVERYTHING is just slightly blurry and reading (especially on the computer) (and even with a computer mid focal) is very hard. I have tri-focals, so distance, computer, and reading should all produce clear vision.
I just need to know if what he said is true -- that eventually you cannot correct for an astigmatism without distorting everything else.
