Focus Dailies Contacts Highest Power
Wearing lower refractive power nearsight prescription glasses, will this help make my eyes healthier?
Use monovision w/some blurring at distance & computer. Could single vision contact for distance eye & bifocal contact for near eye improve vision?
Monovision: is very effective of roost people. Variations for the optimum distance (far, intermediate and near) can be obtained through single vision contact lenses or a combination of single vision lens and multifocal lens. Your eye care provider will be able to determine the power and variations from your examination. Be sure to verbalize your needs and illustrate to him/her the distances involved. ...Read more
Night glares+starbursts worsened even after using artificial tears.Anti-glare glasses - no help.Eye power perfect.Not cataract/glaucoma. Cause/remedy?
Incipient cataract : Early lens changes typically cause glare and star bursts .However, at age 30 corneal pathology can cause visual symptoms. Tears are a treatment for dry eye but not a cure. Superficial punctuate keratitis seen in dry eye is rarely eliminated by artificial tears alone. Anti glare glasses may reduce visual symptoms due to ocular pathology but minimally. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Used monovision contacts for years& now want improved clarity & less glare with night driving. Are bifocal contacts a good alternative & comfortable?
No sure way, but...: If a person's nearsightedness correction power is "increasing rapidly", she should be reevaluated by an MD ophthalmologist to see if anything unusual is going on. Usually, a child's, teen's or young adult's nearsightedness slowly increases each year until her eyes stabilize. There is no proven way to naturally stop the progression of one's nearsightedness. ...Read more

Hv mild myopic astigmatism + nystagmus. Far vision perfect w glasses. Near vision slightly blurry with glasses even before presbyopia set in. Why?
No magic fix yet: There is no magic trick or special way to stop one's degree of nearsightedness from changing. One's eyeballs change shape slightly, over time, until they stop changing. It would be nice to have a way to stop myopia from increasing (that sounds like a Nobel Prize type of discovery). We think that reading too often too closely to the eyes may increase nearsightedness. More research is needed. ...Read more
No definitely not. : Current glass correction will only make you see better, to say it will cause a worsening of myopia means that that source of information does not know the principles of optics. Be carefully these sources have an alternate agenda to get money from you for a unproven program. ...Read more
