Is Double Vision After Wearing Goggles Anything To Worry About
Unlikely: Double vision lasting only a few moments and specifically related to a particular situation - in your case, wearing goggles - is unlikely a significant problem. The goggles may be fitting too tightly or may unintentionally have a mild prescription in them that is straining your eyes. If the double vision persists or occurs at other times, you should have your eyes examined. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Need better Rx: First I am goung to assume these contacts are not bifocal cl's. Halos whn using bifocal contacts are normal. If you see halos arouond lights, this usually means the prescription is not as accurate as it can be. Rarely halos can be caused by corneal edema from a poorly fitted contact lens. ...Read more
No: Contact lenses are one method to correct the refractive error in your visual system (eyes) so that you can see more clearly. If your best corrected vision becomes more blurry with contacts then there is an issue. This is usually due to the wrong prescription, poor fit of the contacts, dry eyes, or intolerance to contacts. The best course of action is to have your eyes examined and vision tested. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it fine to wear a glasses all the day if I am short sight person. Is better to wear contact lenses?
Doesn't matter: You can wear either - doesn't matter. It's really a matter of personal choice and appearance. Contacts require more discipline in hygiene ; routine however. I started wearing glasses - initially when necessary but then all the time - for near-sightedness around your age. It will take time for your eyes to adjust ; u may have headaches initially but that will pass. Contacts also require adjustment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
After eye exam, doctor suggested that I wear eye glasses all the time (for nearsightedness) is this true? I want to wear in school & driving only.
It's your choice: Your doctor's suggestion might have been based on the degree of your nearsightedness. Perhaps he felt you would appreciate seeing better. I think it would be fine to wear them when you feel you need to see better. Don't be surprised if you end up wearing them more and more as you appreciate the improvement in your vision. By doing it this way, your adjustment may be easier. ...Read more
Contacts: At age 18 contacts are a good option. Hopefully you vision is 20/20 with your glasses, if so you should be able to achieve 20/20 vision with contacts. For lasik the minimal age is 18 years, but the strength of prescription has to be unchanging and stable for 6-12 months before doing lasik. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Do glasses correct vision for myopia? If so about how long my vision is actually pretty good close up I only use my glasses from far
Myopic spectacles: Yes, prescription glasses refine the refractive error of the eye, whether nearsighted, farsighted, astigmatism, or presbyopia. In your case, your myopia allows you to see more clearly up close, but blurry at distance. Wearing properly prescribed glasses will refine your distance vision. By the way, as long as you see clearly, it's a good idea to read without your glasses. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What to do if I have a double vision in both the eyes,and it is not going evenafter putting glasses please help?
Consult a eye doctor: You may have a palsy of one of the cranial nerves causing dysconjugation of gaze. A formal eye exam will be able to rule out a nerve injury as a cause of the symptom. If it is a nerve injury, it may be temporary & treatable with an eye patch over the affected eye for a period of a few weeks. Ultimately, you need to consult a specialist for a full eval to determine the cause & the right treatment. ...Read more
No problem: You probably wonder if such lenses will alter your color vision. The pigments in colored lenses are of very low density and will not alter color perception. The lenses otherwise are fit, and wear just like any other lenses and the risks are the same. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does it mean if I'm able to use reading glasses even for "distance" ... that is things "far" away are not "blurry," just "bigger"?
Your glasses: Some people have a prescription of + numbers and some have - numbers. If your eyes are far-sighted, your actual prescription may be a + number therefore making your "reading glasses" actually correct your reading and distance vision. This is more common than most people think. ...Read more
My peripheral vision is better when I wear glasses instead of monovision contacts. Why would that be?
Monocular vision : The convenience of being fitted in monofocal contacts is to lessen need for glasses, at the compromise of reduced stereopsis (binocular vision). However I find improvement in peripheral vision when wearing contacts for optimum distance (binocular) vision, versus glasses. Each contact lens individual determines whether the reduction of stereopsis is satisfactory for their daily functions. ...Read more

Is wearing weaker prescription glasses for when I am on the computer a bad thing to do? I'm nearsighted but I still need glasses to see the computer
Not bad: You don't need your full correction to see the computer. As long as you are comfortable in them and you are seeing the computer screen well, then you should be fine. Don't use someone else's glasses ad they might have astigmatism or prism correction that you don't need. Take care. ...Read more
