Playing on computers is unlikely to affect a person's ultimate refraction, but reading at a too-short distance may affect it. ...Read more

Any methods ,precautions supplements to make myopic eye power contant???,power increasing rapidly

There is no proven way to naturally stop the progression of one's nearsightedness. ...Read more

I have given a 0.5 cylindrical power in my left eye with 20° axis .
My question is should I need to wear a spects .
Depends: If you otherwise see well enough without spectacles in with both eyes, you likely can just monitor your vision.

Have your eyes monitored. You can always wear spectacles if your vision is blurry. ...Read more
