See an eye doctor: It depends on the reason your eyesight is poor. There are many possible reasons, some serious and some not. You need to see an eye doctor regardless if you have poor eyesight.

Depends on the cause: For most people, it is glasses. However you should visit an ophthalmologist to determine why you have poor eyesight and what can be done about it.

No: There is no harm in trying to function without needed glasses but the eyes will not be changed and the vision will remain the same.
