Isekonia, you say 'wha?'

Attention glasses/contacts wearers! Do you have a major difference in the prescription between one eye and the other, aka anisometropia
? Have you found any benefit from iseikonic lenses

So, the theory goes that when people who have a difference in the refracting power of their eyes get glasses, the magnifying power in each lens is slightly different, and so the final result is an imperfect image that leads to persistent visual deficits, tiredness, etc., unless the lenses are made in such a way as to compensate for these differences. The optometrist linked above doesn't seem to be a huckster, but I'm curious if anyone's had any practical experience getting iseikonic lenses versus regular lenses and if it's made any difference.
