Do Eyeglasses Really Help Bad Night Vision
Yes: At night, your pupils dilate. This (along with a few other changes that occur at night) may cause a temporary change in your glasses prescription leading to "night myopia" or slight nearsightedness at night. This makes many people feel as though they have "bad night vision" but really a small glasses prescription to be worn at night particularly while driving can help night vision. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is this chronic?: If this is a longstanding condition (as far back as you can remember) it is likely permanent. If it started recently (over the last few months or a few years) there may be a cause that can be treated. I recommend having a dilated eye examination. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Glasses options: Luckily there are many options for you today. First there is the contact lens option. You can be in contact lenses by tomorrow. After that there are all the refractive surgery options: lasik, prk and many more now. Last option is to get a new pair of glasses. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Been using eye drops, but they only make my eyes feel good. The blurred vision is getting really annoying, can anyone help me out?
Not too much to do: Glasses are needed to compensate for the eye being too short, too long, the front lens (cornea) being too round or too flat, and/or the inner lens becoming stiffer with age. Non of these factors can be significantly affected by exercises or supplements or eyeglass use frequency. The only way to make a big reduction in eyeglass/contact lens dependence is laser vision correction. ...Read more
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

Do i need to fix my lazy eye? When i don't wear my glasses (pretty often), my lazy eye drifts sometimes and i get double vision. Is there something i need to do about this?
Things to ponder: When you don't wear your glasses & you start having double vision, your brain doesn't like it. Keep it up and your brain can decide to turn off the eye causing the double vision. If it happens often enough you can loose some vision permanently. Work with your eye doc to keep your eyes in the best shape possible. Wear your glasses or get surgery. What you are doing now could cause long term harm. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What shall I do to improve my eye sight every time my eye glass increases I am short sighted i really want to watch tv without eye glass?
Probably not: Lazy eye responds best to treatment when detected at an early age. Our visual system is more flexible when we are young and we can -retrain your brain to use the lazy eye with the appropriate treatments and patient cooperation. At the age of 48, it is highly unlikely that your lazy eye is going to change much, even with the correct prescription ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I get daily headache, tired eyes, can barely stay away while looking over 15 feet away, or reading. Glasses, eye drops haven't helped, any advice?
Prescription change?: Depending on the last time you've had your eyes checked, you may have a refractive error, that may have changed in terms of your history w/ astigmatism.So you might want to have this rechecked, so that you're wearing the best possible visual corrected glasses/contact lens possible.Also make sure that your eye doctor checks for dry eye syndrome, as that can also sometimes cause those symptoms too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Binocular vision: The prescription maybe wrong, or you may have a problem with the alignment of the eyes. There are several possibilities. See your eye doctor to find out. The fact that you wear bifocals at your age suggests that some binocular (using the two eyes together) disorder exists. ...Read more
