Help me decipher a new eyeglasses Rx

Just got an eye exam and am crossing over into needing my first progressives. Doctor also wrote me a scrip for single vision for at the computer. I know the basics of reading these but is there anything amiss with the Sph here? Or is it normal that the Sph differs between SV and progressive because of the ADD factor?

Just want to make sure there wasn't a mistake here

I'd have the doctor take a second look, I'm betting one of those is transposed.

The Single Vision Rx was written for a +1.00 diopter working distance. If your computer monitor is approximately 1 meter away, it makes perfect sense.

Interesting....and that would make sense. He did have me sit at his desk and show him how far I sit from my computer. I'd say it is closer to 24" than a meter but in the ballpark. Thx

1M = 39.37 inches; that's a roomy ballpark eek2 smiley

I bought single vision for computer use and wore them a few times. I preferred just keeping my progressives on all the time.
