Hi docs, would not wearing glasses harm your eyesight if you need them?

In brief: Not at 39

The only time wearing incorrect glasses, or not wearing them can hurt (damage) your eyes is under the age of nine, when the nerve pathways are still developing.
You may feel eyestarin if you don't wear your glasses, but you will not harm the eyes.
