Yes. Definitely.
I wear glasses since I'm 15. I started with -0.5 dioptrics - almost window glass. I always wore my glasses and my eyes got gradually worse. I had to have new glasses every other year. I have -4.75 dioptrics now and I can't find my shoes without my glasses.

You should have your eyes checked regularly and if your vision changed, you will need new glasses.

Can you read any traffic signs without your glasses? Can you read car plates? Can you see the expression peoples faces when they are more than 5 yards away from you? Would you see a pothole or a head-sized stone on the road when driving at 30 mph?

If no, you should really not be driving without glasses.

If yes, you probably got a different measurement system than I have.

ANSWER #6 of 7

Your eyes will gradually get worse. For most people, they need a check up every 1.5-2 years. If you have some sort of underlying eye condition then you might need more check ups.

I have Nystagmus and have had it since I was born (didn't find out until I was 17) and I need a check up 2-3 times a year. In the span of only 5-6 months, I went from 20/50 without my glasses to 20/80 without my glasses.

If you're experiencing a lot of vision change, then ask your doctor about it since it may be an underlying problem.
