Can You Wear Glasses And Contacts At The Same Time
Yes, but: Why would you want to do such a thing?
No: For most eyeglasses provide improved vision and you will want to wear them to see better. For a few the eyeglasses provide corrections of things like eye misalignment in which case you will need to wear them. Not wearing the glasses for most cases simply prevents you from seeing clearly but does no harm to the eyes.
No difference: If your eyes are normal and can be corrected with glasses or contact lenses to good vision, then there is no difference between the two. If your cornea is abnormal, vision is often better with contact lenses. Glasses wear does decrease peripheral vision some but not to a clinically significant amount.
No: There is nothing bad about wearing glasses. They help you see better. This is a good thing.
Like you can see: For most people, there are no symptoms when wearing glasses for the first time (or changing glasses). A few people have a feeling of distortion or dizziness that usually goes away by continuing to wear the glasses for a few weeks. If you get nauseated or get a headache, then return to the place you got the glasses for evaluation.
If you wear glasses all the time and you take them off for a shower and you become like off balanced feeling?
I wear glasses, sometimes I don't wear them, either way my vision at night time is wrose off then day time, does that mean anything?
Night vision: Most people see worse at night than by day. This is common for a few reasons. For one, many people are more near-sighted at night, since it is harder to pick a point of focus. Also, at night people rely more on the rods than the cones in their eyes, and rods are not as good at perceiving sharp details. If you cannot see at all during the night, this might indicate a true eye disease...
I am short sighted and was told to wear glasses for lectures. But I can't identify people's faces. Should I wear glasses all the time?
Depends: This power can be worn all of the time, but many who need this slight correction wear glasses only to see better when conditions are not good, like driving in the rain or at night or attending a ball game (unless you have really good seats).
Not to my knowledge: As long as you achieve clear ; comfortable vision, it should be fine to use whenever you wish.
