I even showed up with 5 glasses in front of her and she never saw a difference, which gave me confidence to wear them in front of other people with whom an explanation would be more complicated then with her.
My new prescription is (slightly modified over the months, and slightly different in three different shops - I have an appointment for 'objective' measurement): R 0.50 / - 2.00 A 103 degrees, and L - 0.50 / -0.50 A 102 degrees, and, of course, an add for near vision.
This is really near nothing (especially in the left eye), but however, I enjoy wearing glasses, because there is more sharpness in the image.
One remark only: I feel, that the contact lenses on the eyes are much easier to detect with plus glasses, as they have a substantial magnifying effect.
With the 6.00 glasses, this effect might be an estimated 150 percent.
