How Fast Does Vision Worsen With Glasses
Possibly: If the reason for your worsening vision is a change in the refraction which is the optical correction available in new lenses, then that is all you need.

How can I prevent my eyes from worsening? I already wear glasses. Im a boxer so vision is important if i want to be at the top of my game

Not at all: This is an old wives' tale. Your eyes' prescription is a result of their shape and normal changes that occur over time.
