What Is The Cutoff For Needing Glasses Nearsighted
Depends: It all depends on your visual acuity test at the dmv. If you score low enough, the dmv will require that you get glasses/contacts before being issued a license and it will be marked on your license that you are required to wear corrective lenses whenever driving. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Progresses: Nearsightedness (myopia) mostly starts in late childhood and adolescence with progression at a gradually slower rate through the mid 20's. For a while you might see better with glasses every two years but less frequently as you age. You may find the one you get at age 25 is the last change until you hit middle age stuff at age 40. ...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.
I have astigmatism and I am nearsighted. I wear glasses for astigmatism but I still have it when wearing them. Is that normal or do I need new glasses?
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 wearing weaker prescription glasses for when I am on the computer a bad thing to do? I'm nearsighted but I still need glasses to see the computer
Not bad: You don't need your full correction to see the computer. As long as you are comfortable in them and you are seeing the computer screen well, then you should be fine. Don't use someone else's glasses ad they might have astigmatism or prism correction that you don't need. Take care. ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Today the eye doc said I'm borderline nearsighted. What does this mean and will I need glasses in the future? Family history of myopia and astigmatism
Which kind of lasik is appropriate for me? I am nearsighted and worry i may develop a need for reading glasses later in life. I have read that there are two types of lasik eye surgery. Is conventional or wavefront best for me?
Wavefront LASIK: Wavefront lasik and conventional lasik both work very well to help improve vision. You would need to see your own doctor to see which option is best for you. The answer is made more difficult, because the visx laser works best with wavefront, while another popular laser (allegretto) works best with conventional lasik. So - please see your own doctor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
