Do myopes need glasses?

Depends

Eyeglasses
Myopes see things blurry at a distance. The degree of blur depends upon how myopic they are. Glasses will clear up the image but are not a medical item. If a myope does not wear glasses, then things at far will be blurry and if that degree of blur does not bother them, they can get by without glasses. High myopes of course need them to see at all ..

What are prism glasses?

Prism

is a type of lens feature that bends the light to adjust for misaligned eyes. Prisms are also those interesting lenses that can separate white light into the rainbow colors that make it.

Dr. Tod Haller answered:

How much are eye glasses?

Depends!

Head-eye
Depends on your prescription, brand of frames, brand of lenses, and extra features ( transitional lenses, progressive lenses, coatings, prisms, etc.). Sorry, but there is no real answer to your question. It's like buying a car.... Year, make, model, color, hybrid, fully loaded, navigation system, etc. the more you add, the more the price goes up.

How to get me new glasses?

Evaluation at eyedoc

Ophthalmology
New glasses can be made for you at optical shops and in some cases on line. You will need an evaluation, preferably at the office of an ophthalmologist who can best detect if there is anything else wrong with your eyes. Then you will receive an eyeglass prescription which has the information need to make proper eyeglasses from wherever you choose to go.

Are reading glasses suggested?

Depends

Eyeglasses
if you never had problems with seeing up close there could be other causes of shortening the focal distance of the eye. I would suggest a full Ophthalmological workup. Most people do not become presbyopic ( hardening of zonules of the lens) until their 40"s. If you always had problems seeing up close and were never refracted properly you could have just been born with a short eye

Dr. Daniel Quon answered:

Why do doctors wear glasses?

Different reasons

Glasses
Some doctors wear glasses because they need them to correct their vision. Most if not all doctors wear glasses to protect their eyes while performing a procedure where there may be a potential risk of something possibly affecting the eyes.
