Is it recommended that a person wears glasses all the time?

Is it recommended that a person wears glasses all the time?

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. If you are farsighted, you may need the glasses all the time. And if you are a child, you should wear glasses full-time. Special cicumstances, like lazy eye, would be much better with constant glasses wear. ...Read more

Subconj. Hemorrhage: Mostly like a subconjunctival hemorrhage which is like a bruise on the white part of the eye. Because the skin is thick, a bruise looks bluish, but because the outer covering of the eye is thin, it looks blood red. Usually takes 2 to 3 weeks to resolve. ...Read more

Not in adults: In children, the appropriate prescription should be warn so that the vision centers of the brain develops normally. In adults, a weaker prescription can be worn with the trade off that the vision won't be as sharp. Take care. ...Read more

How does a girl who is 12 years old and weighs 90 pounds, who wears glasses get better eyesight? Will she eventually not need glasses from doing this?

How does a girl who is 12 years old and weighs 90 pounds, who wears glasses get better eyesight? Will she eventually not need glasses from doing this?

It depends: Glasses are given to children for many reasons. Sometimes it is for eye crossing or to help fix a "lazy eye" or amblyopia. Many of these children "outgrow" their glasses when they become teens due to eye growth. Many do not. Most children with significant nearsightedness or astigmatism will always need optical correction to see optimally. ...Read more

My aunt wears glasses but she still has vision trouble, could an eyelid lift help? I wonder if my aunt’s drooping eyelids are starting to interfere with her ability to see clearly. She is in her 70s, but I am concerned that the procedure may cause more se

Take a look at her: There are many reasons for lowered vision which her ophthalmologist can discover. Drooping lids can interfere with vision if they fall over the lash line. Does she need to lift her head up to see, or can you see the pupil from a straight on gaze. If there is obstruction, then lifting the lids will clear the vision (try taping them up). Otherwise there is another issue. ...Read more

Is it normal for the white of a 2 year olds eyes to have a blue tint. My 2 year old has medical issues and she wears glasses and we just noticed this?

Is it normal for the white of a 2 year olds eyes to have a blue tint. My 2 year old has medical issues and she wears glasses and we just noticed this?

May be abnormal: Usually if a patient notices that their eyes become lighter or more cloudy/white then that could mean that some of the normally clear reflective parts of the eye have become cloudy. This could include the cornea (edema)or lens (cataract) or vitreous/retina. This should be checked with an eye doctor to rule these things out. ...Read more

Could you who wears glasses restore their vision through eye exercises?

Could you who wears glasses restore their vision through eye exercises?

No: Unfortunately, we cannot make our eyes better with exercises. Our glasses needs are based on the amount of refractive error our eyes have from nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. There is no way (besides surgically) to improve this. ...Read more
