Bruce, Do check with your strabismus doc. The prisms althogh making it hard to see through do stop the wandering eye to a great extent. My right eye used to do a great camelion (? Lizard) imatation. My left eye was rock steady and the right eye would stroll around the room checking out the sights. The prism forces the eye to focus and stops the wandering. Give it a try. One other tip and I am sure the lens companies will not like this is to check your insurance and see if they pay for ground in prisms. If they do go to a major eye glass company (Lens Crafters, Pearl etc.) and have the prism ground into a lens. It is easier to see and if they change the prism within six months it is a prescription change and most major eye glass companies will change your lens free if your prescription changes within six months. Most insurance companies do not pay for the temporary press on lenses. They cost about $25 and my ground lenses after insurance cost $13 and they made free changes for six months. Just a money savings tip you may want to look into.
Thanks a bunch for the info Jake! I really want to be as knowledgeable as possible before I go in to see him next week so I can better evaluate him. I’ve seen enough docs with this stuff to start out not trusting them!
I have secure horizons and I think they will cover special “appliances”.
My right eye doesn’t wander quite as much as it sounds like yours did but it is also tilted, everything I look at with it leans in to the left. Do you have any of that too? Wondering if that will complicate correction with prisms.
