Optometrist do not correct you vision fully. It makes people feel uncomfortable.

I doubt that very much.

My source is my optician and optometrist at a reputable high end establishment.   I'm afraid I have no further source or technical details, and what they mean by full correction.  Possibly they are talking about 20/15 being full correction.  I do not know.  And the context is myopia.

20'/20 is an arbitrary standard and many people have 20/15.  So it could be what they are talking about.

I Googled, and undercorrection is often used with kids on the theory that it will slow the progression of myopia.   This has not been confirmed by studies, however, and has no relevance for adults.

When I next go there, I will get a more technical description of what they meant.

My next pair of glasses, I will have them correct my sight fully, at least, for the sake of seeing details when I photograph.
