I just went in for my first ever eye exam today after work and explained that I have been getting migraines and headaches a lot lately. I had the exam and the doctor said I had a slight Astigmatism. I picked out frames and ordered my glasses. I came home to research my prescription on here and it doesn't sound like my Astigmatism is bad at all. My S says Plano for both eyes and I looked that up and it says non corrective?? Why would they give me non corrective lens? I wanted to get a medical opinion from someone else not selling me the glasses. My C was -0.50 which also is very low according to WebMD. My Axis R: 150 L:027. If someone could help me figure out if these glasses are truly worth the money please help!!View Thread
