Can your eyesight gradually change so that you no longer need glasses?

Can your eyesight gradually change so that you no longer need glasses?

Yes.: As you age, there are natural changes that occur in one's eye that can result in one no longer needing glasses because their refractive correction has changed. An example would be a far sighted (hyperopic) patient requiring less of a hyperopic correction as a result of cataract development as one ages. This results in the lens of the eye becoming thicker resulting in a more myopic correction. ...Read more

Could your eyesight improve natually  so that you no longer need your glasses?

This situation is not very common, but can essentially neutralize the effect of presbyopia. A routine eye examination is indicated. See index of refraction of the lens. ...Read more

My daughter absolutely refuses to use her glasses. Will this affect her eyesight long-term?

It might: If both are similar in their strength, there is less worry than when one is a lot stronger. The brain could decide to turn off the weaker eye in that case, causing a permanent vision loss. If the brain turns one off, it looses the stimulus to be lined up and could start turning in or out.Have a talk with her eye doc and decide how much risk you are dealing with. ...Read more

Does irregular use of glasses worsen eyesight?

Does irregular use of glasses worsen eyesight?

Not at all: Glasses are like crutches - their job is not to heal you, only to help you with what you've got. The eye's prescription is essentially a product of its shape; glasses correct the prescription caused by the eye's shape, but do not cause the eye's shape to change for the better or for the worse. In young children there is a possibility of worsening vision from not using glasses, however. ...Read more
