How do I get into the habit of wearing glasses?

How do I get into the habit of wearing glasses?

Use them: If they are for distance vision and you see much better, start using them all the time. If they are just for reading, keep them in your pocket or around your neck so that they are readily available when needed. When trying bifocals for the first time, sometimes they take a bit getting used to, especially the progressives lenses (in some people). ...Read more

Can you get headaches often from bring far sided but not wearing glasses?

Yes: Being far sighted, or hyperopic, and not wearing your glasses is a common cause of headaches. The more reading, texting, or close-up work you do, the worse it will get.

If you stop wearing glasses all the time will your eyes get stronger?

If you stop wearing glasses all the time will your eyes get stronger?

Glasses weaken eyes?: No. People over 40 often think that wearing readers made their eyes weaker. Presbyopia is a natural condition that occurs around 40 where the focusing power (accommodation) gradually declines over 30 years due to gradual hardening of the natural lens of the eye. The amount of reading power you need to replace gradually increases every 2-3 years. Vision w readers is better; they want glasses. ...Read more

I've been wearing glasses since 2nd grade. Both of my parents wear glasses. Is it normal for my vision to get slightly worse each year?

Vision changes: It is not unusual for vision to change over time. However, if you notice a change, it is a good reason to see your eye doctor. It may be normal, or you may have an underlying disorder which is causing the changes. The doctor can differentiate these two possibilities. ...Read more

Can you get tired looking eyes from not wearing glasses when you can't see clearly?

Can you get tired looking eyes from not wearing glasses when you can't see clearly?

Yes: Some people squint all the time to see clearly taking advantage of the pinhole effect this offers. Chronic squinting can cause permanent furrowing and creasing of the thin lid skin resulting in wrinkles and a look of fatigue. It's very easy to get clear glasses designed for the task at hand - see your ophthalmologist. ...Read more

Is it possible to get misalignment of your eyes when wearing glasses for the first time?

Is it possible to get misalignment of your eyes when wearing glasses for the first time?

Yes: Your eyes may feel misaligned with certain glasses prescriptions, especially those where the lenses are very different from each other or the axis of astigmatism is different on each side. If the glasses are made poorly and the optical centers aren't lined up with your pupils, you can see the effect of induced prism, causing double vision or eye strain. ...Read more

There : There may be a problem with your eyeglasses, e.g., the optical centers of the lenses may not match your pupil location, or the eyeglasses may no longer be the correct prescription. A comprehensive eye examination by your ophthalmologist would be the best way to determine the cause of the headaches. ...Read more

How do I get rid of the pain on my nose from getting hit while wearing glasses?

How do I get rid of the pain on my nose from getting hit while wearing glasses?

Patience: You probably have a bruise on the bridge of the nose. Assuming that the vision is fine, there are no cuts or anything which might endanger the eye, and the nose is not fractured, then you just have to wait it out. Ice for a couple of days and then it will get better. A modest pain reliever might help like tylenol (acetaminophen) (not Aspirin as it can stimulate bleeding.). ...Read more

Recheck: Go back to the prescribing eye doctor and have refraction rechecked and the fitting of your glasses analyzed. Often a cycloplegic refraction and ocular alignment assessment resolves the problems. The glasses may be too strong or astigmatism off axis or an undetected phoria that has decompensated to a tropia with the glasses. The latter two ideas would have double vision symptoms. ...Read more

I have dark marks on my face that I just can't get rid of. They are mostly near both sides of my nose due to wearing glasses. What can I do?

I have dark marks on my face that I just can't get rid of. They are mostly near both sides of my nose due to wearing glasses. What can I do?

Ecchymosis: If the marks are in fact due to constant pressure from the glasses, you will need to consider changing your glasses, using contacts or giving your skin as much rest as possible and changing the rest position of the glasses often. You can also try applying Arnica lotion you can get from health store (GNC, Whole foods, etc.) since it may be due to ecchymosis rather than PIH. ...Read more

Why can't i get near sighted eyeglasses in stores?

Why can't i get near sighted eyeglasses in stores?

Too many options: Stores carry reading glasses because these come in discrete steps with few possibilities. An inventory of near sighted glasses would require hundreds of eyeglasses to cover the most common powers, and that does not include the need for astigmatism correction. So glasses for these needs are fabricated through optical shops due to this complexity. ...Read more

Can wearing prescription eyeglasses continuously make your natural eyesight get worse?

No effect on sight: If you think of your eye as a camera, having a properly focused lens gives clearest picture possible, but the lens itself does not change the camera. The need for glasses comes from the eye not having the right shape or length. Glasses compensate for the physical abnormalities of the eye, but do not change the eye. So, using glasses does not help or worsen the natural sight. ...Read more

New eyeglasses, right eye vision still blurring at the edge of the lens. When will this get back to normal?

Adjustment period: All eyeglasses have "edge" effects due to the difference in power between the center and the edges. This frequently produces some edge blur and changes which, for instance, mean you have to re learn where your feet are when you walk. Your brain will rapidly adjust to this in several days or so. ...Read more
