Why Wearing Glasses Makes Eyes Sunken
May be an illusion: Wearing glasses will not physically change the eyes, it just optically corrects the focusing of the image so that it is clear to the eye. Wearing nearsighted glasses (myopia) can give the illusion that the eyes appear to be smaller and possibly sunken back, while farsighted glasses (like reading glasses) make the eyes look larger. This is a magnification effect based on the power of the lens. ...Read more

Allergic rhinitis?: You get sunken eyes with dark circles if you don't get enough sleep, are exhausted and are not well hydrated. But if you feel normal, and still have those symptoms, do you also have runny nose, sneezing in the morning and at other times, without feeling sick? If so, you may have allergic rhinitis (or hay fever). See your doctor who can prescribe effective medicines. ...Read more
Yes: Some people squint all the time to see clearly taking advantage of the pinhole effect this offers. Chronic squinting can cause permanent furrowing and creasing of the thin lid skin resulting in wrinkles and a look of fatigue. It's very easy to get clear glasses designed for the task at hand - see your ophthalmologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When I take off my everyday glasses, I can see that I'm usually wearing glasses: I have kind of 'puffy' eyes. I see this with others too. How come?
Glasses weaken eyes?: No. People over 40 often think that wearing readers made their eyes weaker. Presbyopia is a natural condition that occurs around 40 where the focusing power (accommodation) gradually declines over 30 years due to gradual hardening of the natural lens of the eye. The amount of reading power you need to replace gradually increases every 2-3 years. Vision w readers is better; they want glasses. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Eyes are pretty tough and flexible. If the glasses you are wearing are incorrect in some way, the eyes will do the best to see and will not be harmed -- you simply will not see as well as you could. (honestly i don't know what you mean by 'grade' - you could re ask that if it is still an issue for you.). ...Read more

Yes: Your eyes may feel misaligned with certain glasses prescriptions, especially those where the lenses are very different from each other or the axis of astigmatism is different on each side. If the glasses are made poorly and the optical centers aren't lined up with your pupils, you can see the effect of induced prism, causing double vision or eye strain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have short-sightedness with degree of 150-200 for both eyes. How can I improve my eyesight instead of wearing glasses?
Options...: For correcting near-sightedness include glasses, contacts, and surgeries. Surgeries can be broken down into two broad groups: laser-based surgeries such as lasik or intraocular-based surgeries such as refractive lens exchange. Your near-sighted prescription should be stable before considering any type of surgery. ...Read more
