Can there be special eye-glasses available for driving at night even if the person has pretty good vision?

Can there be special eye-glasses available for driving at night even if the person has pretty good vision?

Best Vision: Decreased vision may be due to uncorrected refractive errors, meaning you need glasses to see your best. Even a slight degree of nearsightedness can further reduce vision at night. Sometimes small cataracts can blur sight. An examination by an ophthalmologist can resolve the question. ...Read more

If I have cataracts that are not even in the advanced stages, can eye glasses improve my vision?

Often: The early phases of cataract are usually "reversed" or "compensated" by glasses. You'll find that vision is restored yet there is a change in your prescription. At some point, changing glasses may no longer suffice and cataract surgery may need to be considered. ...Read more

I see double vision 24/7. I'm 20. And i did get prism eye glasses but they give me eye strain and headaches. Will I have this forever now? I'm worried

Adjustment: It may be that you haven't fully adapted to the prismatic correction in your glasses, or adjustment may be necessary. Call your eye doc to have a checkup. You may need more or less prism power. Double vision can be very frustrating and adjustments are often needed early in in the treatment. Hopefully your symptoms will resolve quickly. ...Read more

I have demo eye glasses with clear glass. When I wear them, my eyes hurt. Is this normal?

I have demo eye glasses with clear glass. When I wear them, my eyes hurt. Is this normal?

It can be: If you are in need of prescription lenses and wear clear glasses, you may be straining through them. Alternately, the plain lenses may actually not be of very good quality and may be warped. This can create a "fake prescription" in the lenses that is just enough to affect you. You are better off not wearing the glasses. ...Read more

Is there a certain amount of time you have to wear eye glasses before wearing contact lenses?

No: It does make sense to be wearing glasses full time prior to changing to contact lenses.

I wear eye glasses. I feel that plastic glasses are a little blurry as compared to glass. Is it so?

I wear eye glasses. I feel that plastic glasses are a little blurry as compared to glass. Is it so?

Slight possibility: Although glass lenses offer a subtle advantage in clarity over high index or polycarbonate lenses, typically the advantages of plastic far outweigh glass. Polycarbonate essentially can function as 'safety ' glasses. The drawback however is that plastic tends to scratch more easily no matter what over glasses. Again though, the functionality of plastic is superior. ...Read more

My 4 yrs old son is dgnosed with short sightedness & astigmtsm(-6,+2.25x90)both eyes.What are risks if he doesnt wear prescrptn  eye glasses for this?

He wouldn't learn: or live properly, his eyesight would be affected more. If you are worried about social interaction while wearing glasses, he would suffer more if not having correct eyesight. Talk to a Pediatric Opthalmologist, if you have access to one, or his regular Ophthalmologist for alternative treatments / long term care, your son will be just fine, best wishes ...Read more

If i wear eye glasses and for the left eye a "prisme" glass thats my physician prescriped should I always wear it and for always or my eye will heal ?

Depends on cause: Prisms are prescribed to alleviate doubling of vision and to provide relief for temporary paralysis of a muscle. If the muscle is expected to recover, then the prisms can be abandoned eventually (usually in 6 months). If the doubling is permanent, then the prisms might be needed long term. Surgery might also be considered for this situation. ...Read more
