Is there some kind of term for having one near sighted and one far sighted eye? I have one of each and I can't remember if there is a term or not. :\
And does anyone else wear contacts or glasses? :D
If so, do you have a prescription? Mine is -2.50!
I have both contacts and glasses and my eyes keep getting worse :P

S C x Axis
Degree of nearsightedness/farsightedness (Spherical), degree of astigmatism x curvature placement of astigmatism (Axis)
RIGHT: -3.50 -1.75 x 010
LEFT: -2.75 -1.75 x180
In more basic terms, my vision is about 20/500 or what someone can read at 500 feet away, I have to be 20 feet away to read.
I wear contacts. I don't really like glasses. I think they look ugly, but other people seem to look good in glasses.. so maybe I just suck at picking them out.
The term is antimetropia. Yes you have anisometropia-- but that is when you just have different levels of nearsightedness, or different levels of farsightedness. I also have anisometropia even though both eyes are nearsighted. Antimetropia is the specific instance when you have one nearsighted and one farsighted. It's kinda like, yes we're both mammals, but I'm a Golden-mantled tree-kangaroo and you're a Pika.1
