I have double vision and nearsightedness, will lasik do any good for me? My vision improves 70 % with glasses but i get a hard time focusing anything.
Probably not: There are two issues that need specific answers, one is do you really have double vision(that is seeing two separate or partially overlapping images and not just ghosting or blur) and if so, what is the cause? The second is to find out why your vision only improves 70 per cent with glasses. Until then you should not have lasik. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Should i wear my glasses all the time or only when i need them most like driving etc? And can they improve my vision in any way?
Yes: Your vision will improve, get worse, or remain the same. Please forgive me, no disrespect is intended. These things are unpredictable. You'll be doing yourself a favor if you do wear your prescription rx's, and i hope that you will at least wear them when you are driving a motor vehicle. Many men will like the serious, thoughtful look that glasses give you; or you have a contact lens option. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If I want colored contacts. I have astigmatism, and the bc and dia is lower, will that effect my vision?
No: Base curve (bc) has to do with the steepness (or flatness) of the contact lens. Special soft contact lenses called toric contact lenses are required for clear vision in people with significant amounts of astigmatism. They are required to stay 'tighter' on the cornea and this can be accomplished by a steeper (lower) base curve and a smaller diameter (dia). Visial quality isn't affected. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can happen: Significant changes in myopia (nearsightedness) can ceratinly occur in a short time period, especially in childhood. There may be some association with intense near activities like reading, computer use, hand--held video games etc. Some medications can cause myopia as a side-effect, and there are some eye problems, notably cataract, which can increase myopia too. See an eye md to sort it out. ...Read more
