I am nearsighted but with no astigmatism, and have 20/10 vision with correction.
How do I get a prescription in the US that gets me the absolute maximum supervision?
That is, I've seen my prescriptions over time vary by I think 0.25, but never less than that. I'm assuming this is the limit of measurement ability at an optometrist's office. Is that so?
Would a more precise measurement make a noticeable difference with glasses? Do optometrists even have the equipment to measure more precisely? And can lensmakers work with more precise measurements than standard?
(Feel free to hit me with the sordid details of the world of optometry, lens equations, etc. I'm a geek)
