    Best T design for Eye Med redo...

    Old Rx
    R +.50 -.50 x 91
    L +1.00 sph
    Add +2.50

    New rx which definitely improves distance
    R +1.00 -.75 x 115
    L +2.00 -.75 x 75
    Add +2.50


    Fit with a Comfort Max softer design which is not as comfortable in distance. Unrecognized T form from previous glasses not made by us.

    Laser has an "H" with a curved line over it. Made with no prism thinning. Hoya?

    Pts wants similar design so merging onto the highway the peripheral gaze is not as blurred.

    Needs to be in Eye Med family of designs.

    Claims the reading cards letters look lighter and not as sharp.

    PD is a little off (3mm) from the lab so when I bent the bridge to narrow it she noticed improvement at near.

    I'm leaning toward the old Younger Image w/ no prism thinning.

    What do you suggest?

    Love this old threads explanation for dummies like me by Sharpstick over progressive design differences like the above referenced "T Shape". Post #11:

    Too much plus prescribing. Cut it 1/4D and that will solve most of it.

    Then just go to the grinder Physio and be done with it.

    Rule out adaptation to having being underplused at near for x number of years- hold the reading card 2-4 inches closer...clearer? Alternately, place -0.25 flipper lenses over when reading J1. If true, cut the add or instruct the wearer to hold near objects closer than before.

    I don't know what Eyemed allows, but if you can get the Varilux family consider the Physio for better distance periphery clarity.

    Hope this helps,
