Is It Normal To Have Double Vision Often When I Am Wearing My Glasses
Usually not.: Unless there is a big difference in the prescription between the two eyes, you should not experience double vision when wearing your glasses. There may be a problem with the way that the glasses were made or the prescription itself. It could also be something unrelated to the glasses. Your complaint warrants further investigation by the individual who prescribed your glasses. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Blurred vision: The most common cause of occasional blurry vision is dryness of the eyes. The use of lubricating tear drops should help. If this continues after the use of tear drops or if the blurry vision is associated with loss of color or any portion of your field of view, seek the care of an ophthalmologist promptly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have astigmatism and I am nearsighted. I wear glasses for astigmatism but I still have it when wearing them. Is that normal or do I need new glasses?
When I wear my contacts and I look at a light, I often see double vision in the light. Is this normal?
I tend to open my eyes wide when wearing contact lenses, which causes some eye fatigue. Is this normal? Should I consciously close up my eyelids a bit as if I am wearing glasses?
It is common: to open your eyes wider while wearing contact lenses, especially while getting use to them. If your eyes are becoming fatigued while wearing contact lens, you should decrease the amount of time that you are wearing them, in order to allow your eyes to adapt. Try wearing the contacts for only 4 hours/day for a few days, if your eyes do not feel fatigued, gradually increase the number of hours/day ...Read more
I wear daily contacts most days but wear glasses once in a while. When I wear my glasses though my eyes become red and burn. Why is that?
Dry Eye Syndrome: If you wear contacts they act as a moist sponge to retain water and keep your eye lubricated. When your contacts are out your eyes are succeptible to the drying effects of the air. Since the tear film is such a critical layer for eye health, I would recommend adding a supplemental lubricating eye drop (such as Systane Balance) two or three times a day. It is safe to use with your contacts too. ...Read more
I have noticed, that sometimes I close one of my eyes when reading an sms when I am without my glasses. I this a bad habbit? I wear glasses constantly
Depends: The eyes have a normal, physical resting position in the bony orbits in which they sit. Bulging can be a problem but is not an indication of a need for eyeglasses. The need for glasses called refractive power is a totally separate issue. In extreme myopia only, the eyes can bulge forward a little. ...Read more
Sometimes: You are probably experiencing edge effects. A new eyeglass, frequently with a higher power lens than before, will distort the vision around the edges (you will have to relearn where your feet are). This causes some strangeness but if the prescription is ok (can you see clearly straight ahead with each eye?) then you will quickly adapt with regular wear. ...Read more
I have noticed my vision is somewhat blurry in the normal part of my glasses but if I take them off things seem to clear up. I still need my bifocals ?
Eye power change: This sounds like you have had a change in the eyeglass power needs. Check with you ophthalmologist and get the current set of numbers. At that appointment you can get checked with anything else that might be wrong. ...Read more
Do i need to fix my lazy eye? When i don't wear my glasses (pretty often), my lazy eye drifts sometimes and i get double vision. Is there something i need to do about this?
Things to ponder: When you don't wear your glasses & you start having double vision, your brain doesn't like it. Keep it up and your brain can decide to turn off the eye causing the double vision. If it happens often enough you can loose some vision permanently. Work with your eye doc to keep your eyes in the best shape possible. Wear your glasses or get surgery. What you are doing now could cause long term harm. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
