Night glares+starbursts worsened even after using artificial tears.Anti-glare glasses - no help.Eye power perfect.Not cataract/glaucoma. Cause/remedy?

Incipient cataract : Early lens changes typically cause glare and star bursts .However, at age 30 corneal pathology can cause visual symptoms. Tears are a treatment for dry eye but not a cure. Superficial punctuate keratitis seen in dry eye is rarely eliminated by artificial tears alone. Anti glare glasses may reduce visual symptoms due to ocular pathology but minimally. ...Read more

Accommodative spasm: Take more frequent breaks from near work: Rule of three "20's" Every 20 minutes, remove glasses, look at object st least 20 feet away, for at least 20 seconds.

Dsek prem.Iol & cornea slipped, vis 20/70. Dr. Lifted cornea & it wrinkled.  2nd cornea trnsplnt but dev. Cme.Shots ok but blurry distance vision.  ?

A lot of info here: There is a lot going on here, but sounds like some of the common problems with such a procedure. You will not have good vision as long as you have cme. Sometimes with dsek you can't get 20/20 but worse than 20/40 is unusual. If you have a multifocal iol with a dsek, i suspect that could give diminished vision as well. ...Read more

Could wearing my +1.25 reading glasses all day harm my vision?

Could wearing my +1.25 reading glasses all day harm my vision?

No: Lenses may correct the vision so that you can see more clearly. An eye with uncorrected or even wrongly corrected lenses will do its best but will not be harmed. If the +1.25 lenses help you see better, than by all means keep it up. See your ophthalmologist for the best correction. ...Read more

I can wear zero power plastic glasses after lasik?

I can wear zero power plastic glasses after lasik?

Yes: I presume you had successful vision correction (lasik) surgery and that (now) your prescription is "zero" or plano in your eyes. You certainly can wear protective eye glasses and I do advise this for outside activities and for uv protection. Also, because some individuals have dry eye symptoms following lasik, the glasses can help deflect airflow that speeds up evaporative tear loss. ...Read more

I'm -13.25. I've been fitted with -10.50 GP & soft lenses. This undercorrection will worsen my eyesight, correct? They should be -12, right?

I'm -13.25.  I've been fitted with -10.50 GP & soft lenses. This undercorrection will worsen my eyesight, correct? They should be -12, right?

No and no.: Two part question and answer: First, your negative power eye glass prescription will always translate into a less negative power contact lens prescription, since the eye glasses sit in front of your eye and the contact fits on your eye. If you see well, then you are not under-corrected. Second, even if you are under corrected, under correction does not cause progressive myopia. ...Read more
