You are better off not wearing the glasses. ...Read more

I wear eye glasses. I feel that plastic glasses are a little blurry as compared to glass. Is it so?

I wear eye glasses. I feel that plastic glasses are a little blurry as compared to glass. Is it so?

Slight possibility: Although glass lenses offer a subtle advantage in clarity over high index or polycarbonate lenses, typically the advantages of plastic far outweigh glass. Polycarbonate essentially can function as 'safety ' glasses. The drawback however is that plastic tends to scratch more easily no matter what over glasses. Again though, the functionality of plastic is superior. ...Read more

Depends on cause: Prisms are prescribed to alleviate doubling of vision and to provide relief for temporary paralysis of a muscle. If the muscle is expected to recover, then the prisms can be abandoned eventually (usually in 6 months). If the doubling is permanent, then the prisms might be needed long term. Surgery might also be considered for this situation. ...Read more

How long to wait to wear contact lenses after gonioscopy (or whatever the exam is called where ophtalmologist puts a glass lense on your numbed eye)?

How long to wait to wear contact lenses after gonioscopy (or whatever the exam is called where ophtalmologist puts a glass lense on your numbed eye)?

The numbness usually disappears in 10 minutes at most and the normal tear flow will clean out the residual gel. So you can start to wear you contact lenses by the time the exam is completely over - probably 15 minutes after the gel aided exam. ...Read more
