Is It Ok To Wear Reading Glasses All The Time
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.

Shouldn't: All depends on what you define as perfect vision. If that has been assessed by an eye care provider, then reading glasses are merely extra magnification and shouldn't interfere with your vision.

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.

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

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 depends: Depending on the reason for the glasses, you may be better wearing them full-time. If you are nearsighted (can see close but not far), you may only need glasses for driving.
