If glasses are so near the eyes so much so that eyelashes touch the glass lens often...does it affect the eyesight /vision in any way??

If glasses are so near the eyes so much so that eyelashes touch the glass lens often...does it affect the eyesight /vision in any way??

No: No, the position of your glasses doesn't adversely affect your eyes, but will alter the proper focus of the light entering through the lenses. Of course, it also depends on how strong the prescription is, with extremely high degrees myopia or hyperopia the vertex difference does make a difference. Also, the eyelashes do flick moisture onto the lenses altering clarity. You should make sure lenses fit. ...Read more

Why can't they make a progressive eye glass lens where the vision for intermediate and reading is wider... Even to the edge of the frame?

Why can't they make a progressive eye glass lens where the vision for intermediate and reading is wider... Even to the edge of the frame?

Not optically done: Progressive lenses have two issues: 1) giving a continuous grind to allow for several distances of clear vision and 2) cosmetic optics so that the continuous grind is not evident. They could make a lens with a much larger optic as you are hoping for but this would produce obvious optical distortions that would make the lens look odd and would not reach the edge of the lens anyway. ...Read more

Woke up during night; centre of vision both eyes completely blurred, as though looking through crystal glass. Passed when turned on light. Eye dr asap?

Yes, get an eye exam: I would get an eye exam to rule out any problems that might cause this, although it is likely that the eyes will be found to be completely healthy. There are a few relatively rare conditions that could cause bilateral central vision blurring upon awakening, and it would be good to rule these out. A complete exam should be done, including dilation, to check the retinal and optic nerve health as well. ...Read more
