Over The Counter Glasses Near Sighted

Unlikely: What you are implying is the common perception that the wearing of eyeglasses will cause a need for them to increase. The eyes will do the best whether or not the need for eyeglasses is corrected. At your age the most significant change will be presbyopia, the need for near vision correction as one advances over age 40. ...Read more
I ve near sighted (myopic) vision and I wear glasses for that but should I wear these glasses while reading?
Contact lenses: Yes, contact lenses can solve your problem. ...Read more
Myopic correction: If the myopia is of lower magnitude, it is possible for a person to read comfortably at a reading distance. However, if someone has moderate to high myopia, reading without any correction may be uncomfortable since one has to bring the reading material very closes to their eyes. ...Read more
Near sighted, -1.00, 20/40 distance acuity. Is my vision still good enough so I won't need reading glasses?
For awhile: Near vision changes typically occur around age 40-45 and progress into our late 60's, called presbyopia. Nearsightedness does help the reading vision even into those early years, but because presbyopia progresses a -1.00 will eventually not be strong enough. ...Read more
No: People who are nearsighted can often read quite well without their glasses on. Their reading vision actually gets worse when they wear their distance glasses when they try to read. This typically happens when they get into their mid-40s. They develop a loss of focusing power up close called presbyopia (happens to everyone). ...Read more
Local Optical Shop: Once you have your prescription, glasses can be ordered from a variety of places including mall chains, optical shops, optometrist or ophthalmologist's office, and even the internet. The actual lens cutting is becoming more of a commodity but good customer service for frame fit and aesthetics as well as trouble shooting for problems with vision or specialty lenses will be the best w/ a local shop. ...Read more
No one place: A careful refractive exam, with careful measurements for the glasses usually yields a good pair of glasses and a happy patient. This can happen at a chain or discount store just as easily as in a boutique optical, but I have found that owner opticians generally do a better job at complex eyeglass prescriptions. ...Read more
Uncertain: Every state is different, but in ca, you must be able to see a 20/40 target with each eye in order to pass their screening. If you don't, they ask you to obtain an eye exam to document why you can't see 20/40. If the reason is nearsightedness, your license will have a requirement that you wear corrective lenses while driving. Inability to see 20/40 would translate to about -1.50 or greater. ...Read more
I have good insurance, but terrible vision. How much should I expect to pay out-of-pocket to get lasik done? I'm 27-years old, and I am near-sighted. I currently wear glasses to work, drive, watch tv, etc. I'd like to get lasik surgery in the near future.
Will my prescribed glasses correct my nearsightedness? I play lots of video games and that's how I became nearsighted
Sort of: Your prescribed glasses will correct your vision while you wear them, but they will not make your nearsightedness go away. Playing video games on a hand held device or near computer screen might make nearsightedness a little worse, but it probably didn't cause it. Playing on a screen 3 feet away or farther won't affect your vision. At 17, you can have fun with many other things also. ...Read more
I have nearsightedness and an astigmatism. Should I wear glasses all the time, even for close up activities? Or will this make vision worse?
Myopic spectacles: Yes, prescription glasses refine the refractive error of the eye, whether nearsighted, farsighted, astigmatism, or presbyopia. In your case, your myopia allows you to see more clearly up close, but blurry at distance. Wearing properly prescribed glasses will refine your distance vision, &, By the way, wearing glasses doesn't deteriorate your vision. If you see clearly upclose without them on, great ...Read more
I've been diagnosed with normal astigmatism with nearsightedness. First time wearing glasses! I'd like to know, if I need to wear it all the time.
Is it possible for my nearsightedness to go away I have prescribed glasses only from far. Anyway to correct my vision without LASIK Do exercises work?
Not by itself: It is usual for those who are nearsighted to need glasses mostly for distance and not for near. Exercises will not work as a nearsighted eye is optically too strong and exercises would only make it stronger and increase the nearsightedness. LASIK is pretty terrific when you reach the proper ago (usually around 23). Meanwhile you can try contact lenses. ...Read more
Too many options: There are too many factors that determine a glasses prescription to allow for mass manufacturing. Generally you need a unique prescription for each eye that is combination of distance prescription, close prescription, location of the lenses on your face and any muscle imbalance correction. There is also tinting, anti-reflective coatings, anti-scratch coatings, polarization and more. ...Read more

Is it normal for a nearsightedness to feel a little dizzy or headache after fitting new glasses? It just increased by 100.
Change in glasses Rx: It is common to have some difficulty getting used to a new glasses prescription. Usually, this should get better in a week or two. If it doesn't, then you should have the glasses checked by the place that made them and have the prescription checked by the eye doctor that did the exam to make sure the power is correct. ...Read more
What happens if you have really bad eye sight at age 10 and need thick glasses for nearsightedness already?
Glasses/CLs: Some kids develop nearsightedness (myopia) early. In order to see better, they wear glasses and, when they are mature enough, can use contact lenses (cls). Kids are not appropriate candidates for any laser vision correction. Myopic people in general are slightly more at-risk for some eye diseases like glaucoma, so your child should be checked by an ophthalmologist at least yearly. ...Read more
I have double vision and nearsightedness, will lasik do any good for me? My vision improves 70 % with glasses but I get a hard time focusing anything.
Probably not: There are two issues that need specific answers, one is do you really have double vision (that is seeing two separate or partially overlapping images and not just ghosting or blur) and if so, what is the cause? The second is to find out why your vision only improves 70 per cent with glasses. Until then you should not have lasik. ...Read more
Can a lensectomy help with both astigmatism and nearsightedness? I have astigmatism and I am very nearsighted; I've worn glasses for years. What kind of results could I expect from a lensectomy, and is it as safe as cataract surgery? .
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's your choice: Your doctor's suggestion might have been based on the degree of your nearsightedness. Perhaps he felt you would appreciate seeing better. I think it would be fine to wear them when you feel you need to see better. Don't be surprised if you end up wearing them more and more as you appreciate the improvement in your vision. By doing it this way, your adjustment may be easier. ...Read more
Which laser eye surgery correct both my nearsightedness and astigmatism? Do either of the popular types of laser eye surgery, lasik or prk, fix these issues so that i'll have 20/20 vision or close to it? I can't wear contacts; I've worn glasses since I wa
Too many options: Stores carry reading glasses because these come in discrete steps with few possibilities. An inventory of near sighted glasses would require hundreds of eyeglasses to cover the most common powers, and that does not include the need for astigmatism correction. So glasses for these needs are fabricated through optical shops due to this complexity. ...Read more
