Is it true that nearsighted people won't need reading glasses when they get older?

Is it true that nearsighted people won't need reading glasses when they get older?

Possibly: It depends on how nearsighted you are. If only a little or a lot then you may still need glasses for reading. If you happen to have an amount of myopia (nearsightedness) in the same range as what you would need for readers than you would not. The natural nearsightedness would then offset the loss of reading vision (presbyopia). ...Read more

Is it true that wearing glasses will actually worsen your vision when you start wearing them?

Not at all: This is an old wives' tale. Your eyes' prescription is a result of their shape and normal changes that occur over time. This built-in shape is not affected by outside sources (except for injury/infection). Glasses correct the prescription that the eye has; they do not alter the eye's shape. As your prescription naturally changes, you will need a stronger prescription, and not the other way around. ...Read more

Asking for someone.what are the consequences of wearing an expired contact lenses?my friend said that they're ok to wear beacuse she's not wearing them often. Is that true?

If glasses are so near the eyes so much so that eyelashes touch the glass lens often...does it affect the eyesight /vision in anyway??

If glasses are so near the eyes so much so that eyelashes touch the glass lens often...does it affect the eyesight /vision in anyway??

No: No, the position of your glasses doesn't adversely affect your eyes, but will alter the proper focus of the light entering through the lenses. Of course it also depends on how strong the prescription is, with extremely high degrees myopia or hyperopia the vertex difference does make a difference. Also the eyelashes do flick moisture onto the lenses altering clarity. You should make sure lenses fit. ...Read more

If we do not wear glasses and we need them will it make our eyes more blurry or improve our eyesight?

Myths about glasses: Not wearing your glasses can contribute to eye strain but, in adults, will not affect the refractive status of the eye. You can not make your vision "better" by wearing or not wearing your glasses. Children are different, however. If a young child is prescribed glasses, then he/she should wear them as instructed in order to avoid amblyopia (in lay terms called "lazy eye"). ...Read more

Is it true what people say about shampoos that is hair develop immunity against them overtime? So that we should change shampoo often.

Is it true what people say about shampoos that is hair develop immunity against them overtime? So that we should change shampoo often.

Hair is dead: Hair is composed only of dead tissue. It can't "know" what you put on it a few days ago. It can only respond to what you have on it now. This is like saying that your nails become "immune" to your nail polish and so you have to change polish brand frequently. Use s shampoo that makes your hair feel/smell like you want it to feel/smell and don't be fooled by all the ads. ...Read more

Elective: When laser vision correction is offered as an option to the standard treatment of refractive error (glasses, contact lenses), it is elective surgery. Providing that there are no contraindications to the procedure, people may choose this option for personal needs/reasons. Cost, however, seems to be the biggest deterrent for the procedure.

My glasses makes things look smaller but when wearing contacts everything looks normal. So what is the correct one?
