Is it bad that I need glasses but I don't want to wear them? What are the effects of that? Would it worsen my vision?
Hard to say: If both eyes are at a similar strength the brain would probably just give you fuzzy vision.Over time, all vision can gradually change anyway.If one eye is stronger than the other, or gives a sharper image, the brain may eventually turn off the vision in the weaker eye.Without vision, that eye may no longer track or line up straight with the other, leaving you cross or wall eyed. ...Read more
No...: ...But it may cause undue strain. Up until the 40s, the eyes can normally focus for near work. By the late 40s, near focus becomes difficult. Reading glasses are essentially magnifiers that help you focus up close. If you can focus up close on your own, there is no reason to use readers, and they can give you headaches. There is no danger, however, in using them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi can you tell me if i can get glasses over my contacts to improve my vision. Im -18 in my contacts and been told my vision is as good as it gets.?
Glasses and Contacts: Glasses can be used over contact lenses to fine tune a prescription if necessary. You are extremely nearsighted if your prescription is -18. Contacts can correct most of the nearsightedness, and then residual astigmatism or even more nearsightedness can be corrected with glasses. The optical effect with this combination would be much better than glasses alone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Shouldn't: All depends on what you define as perfect vision. If that has been assessed by an eye care provider, then reading glasses are merely extra magnification and shouldn't interfere with your vision. However, if you have any residual farsightedness or other type of prescription at distance, sometimes this can become more manifest, or noticeable, after wearing reading glasses. ...Read more
What do you suggest if i got my glasses today. My vision isn't terribly bad, they were mainly for them for a few days consistently to get my eyes acclamated, is this ok?
May need a check: Return to see you eye doctor If you are still having problems after a week. The prescription may be off or the glasses could have been made incorrectly. There is usually no charge for this and most optical places will remake a prescription at no charge if done with a certain time. Usually, 90 days. ...Read more

Minor distance power: Your distance correction is small and you could function well without correcting that. You did not state your age, but apparently are over 40 and need near magnification for presbyopia which is age related. You could get this over the counter. A bifocal could be made which would give you the convenience of having one eyeglass for all distances. ...Read more
Have 2 diff. glasses- near and far glasses. Near vision getting just as bad as far vision. Optometrist says too young (20yr) for bifocals. Presbyopia?
