Need followup: You're being treated with a antibiotic-steroid preparation for some type of eye disorder (?). If, after a rather short period of treatment, there is no improvement or worsening, you must call your eye doc and return for follow up exam. Eye diseases can be very serious and can affect vision permanently. Your question does not inform me for what you're being treated. Call asap!

What do you recommend if I have 3.00 in both eyes. Is there a way i can improve eyesight?

Shape of eye: Most people have that level of prescription because the shape of the eye is either slightly too long or too short for the focal length of the eye. Your best bet is to get an accurate prescription.

A 46-year-old female asked:
My eyesight is -10.25 in both eyes. how bad is this? is this legally blind

Probably not: A level of -10.25 is highly myopic but if correctable to 20/20 with proper eyeglasses or contacts, then you definitely are not legally blind. Legal blindness refers to the best corrected vision/ not to the uncorrected vision. Your level of myopia is high but not extreme. Contact lens manufacturers pre-make soft lenses in the most common powers from 0.00 to -12.00. So they think -10 is common.
