I just started wearing glasses (2wks), my eyes r now really dry. What r the best eye drops?

Artificial tears: Artificial tears. There are many brands and they are over the counter. I would avoid those that use benzalkonium chloride as a preservative as they can be irritating. Use them at least 4-6 times a day. ...Read more

Scratch?: You may have scratched your cornea. Use non preserved tears purchased over the counter every hour until symptoms fade. Don't put contacts in until you are symptom free and your eye looks normal. If not better in a day you should have it checked by eye doc, as these injuries may result in infection. ...Read more

If you stop wearing glasses all the time will your eyes get stronger?

If you stop wearing glasses all the time will your eyes get stronger?

Glasses weaken eyes?: No. People over 40 often think that wearing readers made their eyes weaker. Presbyopia is a natural condition that occurs around 40 where the focusing power (accommodation) gradually declines over 30 years due to gradual hardening of the natural lens of the eye. The amount of reading power you need to replace gradually increases every 2-3 years. Vision w readers is better; they want glasses. ...Read more

Does wearing glasses make eyes sunken?

Does wearing glasses make eyes sunken?

May be an illusion: Wearing glasses will not physically change the eyes, it just optically corrects the focusing of the image so that it is clear to the eye. Wearing nearsighted glasses (myopia) can give the illusion that the eyes appear to be smaller and possibly sunken back, while farsighted glasses (like reading glasses) make the eyes look larger. This is a magnification effect based on the power of the lens. ...Read more

Can you get tired looking eyes from not wearing glasses when you can't see clearly?

Can you get tired looking eyes from not wearing glasses when you can't see clearly?

Yes: Some people squint all the time to see clearly taking advantage of the pinhole effect this offers. Chronic squinting can cause permanent furrowing and creasing of the thin lid skin resulting in wrinkles and a look of fatigue. It's very easy to get clear glasses designed for the task at hand - see your ophthalmologist. ...Read more

What can I do to boost my eye sight without wearing glasses?

Contacts, LASIK: I am sure that you are aware that contacts and lasik surgery are options. You probably want to know if there are dietary or exercise means to improve the vision. However, these will not work. Discuss this with your ophthalmologist. ...Read more

Is it possible to get misalignment of your eyes when wearing glasses for the first time?

Yes: Your eyes may feel misaligned with certain glasses prescriptions, especially those where the lenses are very different from each other or the axis of astigmatism is different on each side. If the glasses are made poorly and the optical centers aren't lined up with your pupils, you can see the effect of induced prism, causing double vision or eye strain. ...Read more

Does wearing glasses stronger than I need for 7/8 days permanently increases my eye-power? How much harmful it is?

Does wearing glasses stronger than I need for 7/8 days permanently increases my eye-power? How much harmful it is?

Nope: Glasses neither hurt nor help your eyes. All they do is focus light on your macula to see clearer. They may relieve eye strain but will not harm nor cure your eye. Not so simple in kids with amblyopia or potential amblyopia. That's another lesson! ...Read more

I have short-sightedness with degree of 150-200 for both eyes. How can I improve my eyesight instead of wearing glasses?

Options...: For correcting near-sightedness include glasses, contacts, and surgeries. Surgeries can be broken down into two broad groups: laser-based surgeries such as lasik or intraocular-based surgeries such as refractive lens exchange. Your near-sighted prescription should be stable before considering any type of surgery. ...Read more

My child is 12 years old and he just started wearing glasses with about 225 degrees for both eyes, can his eyesight improve?

My child is 12 years old and he just started wearing glasses with about 225 degrees for both eyes, can his eyesight improve?

No, glasses improve: vision, but do not correct the underlying eye focus problem, which is related to a mismatch of the depth of the eye and the shape of the lens. At this age, myopia is the most common cause, and often tends to worsen at puberty. ...Read more

I meant that my left eyeglasses lens is closer to my left eyeball than my right glasses lens to my right eyeball. Is this harmful to eyes or vision?

I have myopia. I am wearing glasses but what would help to regain my vision. And my eyes often feel irritating and are red?

You may be straining: And doing too much computer work, which means you are staring at the screen and not blinking much. Lubricating eye drops can help (without preservative) that are also called artificial tears. They will moisturize your eyes, and are easy to use. Post a note to blink more often by your computer. Be kind to your eyes. Myopia may be from the shape of your eye, and that's harder to reverse by itself. ...Read more
