Can My Eyesight Gradually Change So That I No Longer Will Need My Glasses
Eyes: Yes. In some people, the prescription gets better with time. This is not common, but it may happen. ...Read more
Sight is the sum of the light receptive and integrative capacity of the eye including best vision, color vision, night vision, depth vision, field of vision and the ability to track objects in motion. An ophthalmologist can measure these and determine the function of ...Read more
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
Second Sight: Most of the time, the answer is no. A small subset of the population, that has low-power or latent hyperopia, will go through a period when the near vision improves spontaneously as a cataract develops and causes a myopic shift. 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
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

No: This is a common "old wives tale" that wearing glasses will somehow cause permanent changes in the eyes. This is not true; the utility of wearing eyeglasses is simply to see better but there will be no changes in your basic eye power that would not have occurred anyway whether you are wearing glasses or not. ...Read more
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
Which kind: Apparently you need eyeglasses for a female relative or acquaintance. Check with your ophthalmologist to determine the style and power for her. ...Read more

Some options: You could try contact lenses as a non-surgical option. Otherwise, you can be evaluated to have refractive lens exchange, which is a surgical option. An implant with your prescription can be placed so that you are less dependent on glasses. It won't always eliminate them in every situation. This is considered cosmetic unless you have cataracts that are affecting your vision. Good luck. ...Read more
Eye growth: The eye can compensate for errors of refraction in many cases from infancy to young age. But as the body grows, so does the eye and eyeglass needs commonly develop. Also the child can in this circumstance have the sophistication to realize he/she does not see so well. See your pediatric ophthalmologist to evaluate this. ...Read more
Growth: It doesn't take much, and children are growing at an amazing rate. A small change in the shape of the lens or the eyeball itself can make a difference. Plus, many kids compensate for a long time, and most likely eyesight was going bit by bit, but it was hard to notice until compensation was no longer possible. ...Read more
Depends: If both your eyes are rather similar in the image they present to the brain,you are likely to do okay.You'll go through life with fuzzy vision but if it works for you it's your choice.If one eye is noticeably better than the other, over time your brain may decide to "turn off" the poorer eyes input, creating a preventable vision loss called amblyopia.Clear this up with your eye doc.It's important ...Read more
Perhaps: Blurred vision is not normal. Make an appointment with an eye doctor to discover what is going on. ...Read more
Is it true that if you stop wearing your glasses, your eyesight gets better? (My eyesight is pretty bad)
Not at all: The quality of your vision/focus is a relationship between your eyeball contour and the parts within. Glasses just move the visual image forward or backward on your retina in a way your brain sees a clearer image. Not wearing your glasses just leaves the image out of focus. You may work to squint some which helps a little for some, but that requires physical effort & doesn't last. ...Read more
