Robert Pattinson Wearing Glasses
No: However if you get used to wearing glasses and see better with them, then you'll want to wear them all the time and thus without them your eyes will seem worse (like deterioration). Glasses only correct a refractive error, not change the eyesight. Eyesight changes with a lot of near work without breaks, or with age as the cornea/lens changes, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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.

No: You will not become "addicted" to your glasses if you wear them all the time. If you are near-sighted enough to need glasses, it is best to wear them all the time. If you are far-sighted or just need reading glasses, you may be able to wear them occasionally but may notice that you see better if you wear them more consistently. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, if you live.: While it may seem that glasses are causing your eyes to deterioriate, it is actually the wear and tear of aging that causes your eyes to lose their ability to see well up close. I sometimes say that it is a birthday present from mother nature and father time that should be accepted graciously, then attacked by glasses, contact lenses, refractive surgery or possibly lens replacement surgery. ...Read more
Several: 1. Eye may actually not be worse, but you now know what better vision is and feel your uncorrected vision is worse when it actually has not changed. Your benchmark for good vision changed.2. Your refraction (nearsightedness, farsightedness , astigmatis, presbyopia ) is actually getting worse. 3. With age your focusing ability is decreasing not allowing you to compensate as well ...Read more
