Is It Bad To Wear Reading Glasses A Lot
No...: ...But it may cause undue strain. Up until the 40s, the eyes can normally focus for near work. By the late 40s, near focus becomes difficult. Reading glasses are essentially magnifiers that help you focus up close. If you can focus up close on your own, there is no reason to use readers, and they can give you headaches. There is no danger, however, in using them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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 have -0.50 in one eye and the other one is perfect. Should I wear glasses? If so, is it possible to wear contacts instead of glasses.
You may only need: one contact, if that. If you can see relatively well, you don't need to wear glasses. For perfect vision, your one eye would need a lens. However, many people are perfectly happy with 20/25 or 20/30 or 20/40 vision in one eye. So, you can wear glasses with a plano (clear) glass for your 20/20 eye if you want. Know that with contacts, you need to take good care of your eye and not overwear them. ...Read more
Probably not: If you are wearing disposable, one day contacts that you throw out at the end of each day, that is the proper procedure. If you are re-using them, then what is the point? But wearing them properly is safe for your eyes and vision, and some feel safer than the alternatives. ...Read more
