You may not need to wear glasses while using computer, if you can read screen. You need glasses to watch TV to get a clear picture. Wearing glasses will not make your vision worse. For healthy diet: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/., exercise 30 minutes/day, drink enough water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. Get HPV vaccine.
