Doctor insights on: Is it legal to wear an eyepatch while driving
Should I wear my glasses all the time or only when I need them most like driving etc? And can they improve my vision in any way?
I got new glasses the other day. I only need to wear when driving and doing work at the computer. Yesterday I happened to have them on most of the day?

You might get a headache from it or your eyes might get bloodshot and feel very sore but in the end it will not cause any permanent damage. You should avoid wearing your glasses when they are not meant to be worn. In your present situation no long-term harm has been done. ...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.
