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 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.
