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
My child had a 20/40 near vision and 20/30 far vision- should we expect to buy our 6 year old eye glasses?

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

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

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
