How come my vision isn't twice as good when I wear my glasses and my contacts together?

Extra correction!: Unless you have specifically undercorrected with both your contacts and glasses, you essentially doubly correct for your eyesight problem. This does not give you twice as good vision as balanced vision for near and far sight requires specific adjustments. Essentially when using one method, you have normal vision, so another method distorts your vision-like when someone wears your glasses. ...Read more

Hi can you tell me if i can get glasses over my contacts to improve my vision. Im -18 in my contacts and been told my vision is as good as it gets.?

Hi can you tell me if i can get glasses over my contacts to improve my vision. Im -18 in my contacts and been told my vision is as good as it gets.?

Glasses and Contacts: Glasses can be used over contact lenses to fine tune a prescription if necessary. You are extremely nearsighted if your prescription is -18. Contacts can correct most of the nearsightedness, and then residual astigmatism or even more nearsightedness can be corrected with glasses. The optical effect with this combination would be much better than glasses alone. ...Read more

Do I need new prescription glasses for my worsening vision?

Possibly: If the reason for your worsening vision is a change in the refraction which is the optical correction available in new lenses, then that is all you need. If the change is due to pathology in the eye, new glasses might not help. Your ophthalmologist can help you find the difference between these two and give you assistance. ...Read more

My eyes always feel dry with contacts in why? Also my vision is not as clear with my contacts as it would be with my glasses... What could this be?

My eyes always feel dry with contacts in why? Also my vision is not as clear  with my contacts as it would be with my glasses... What could this be?

Dry eyes: Wearing contact lenses successfully generally requires very normal ocular surface, normal tearing & resident moisture, properly fitting eyelids with normal oil gland function, and proper handling and caring of the contact lenses. Prescriptions do change and therefore may need adjustment. Some people just can't get enough tolerance to wear contacts long enough and successfully. See an eye MD 4 help ...Read more

My peripheral vision is better when I wear glasses instead of monovision contacts. Why would that be?

My peripheral vision is better when I wear glasses instead of monovision contacts. Why would that be?

Monocular vision : The convenience of being fitted in monofocal contacts is to lessen need for glasses, at the compromise of reduced stereopsis (binocular vision). However I find improvement in peripheral vision when wearing contacts for optimum distance (binocular) vision, versus glasses. Each contact lens individual determines whether the reduction of stereopsis is satisfactory for their daily functions. ...Read more
