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.
Well just did cause my glasses broke so i went in and when she was checking them she told me my prescription is way to high. Even said how am i walking with with out my glasses.I have the same prob to cant find anything without my glasses on. I was 12 when i started wearing mine but never weared them so as i got older my eyes got worse. Then when i was around 17 they told me i need to have them on so i just weared them now im 21 she said mine is -5.00 that i shouldnt be even driving or going any where till my glasses come in.What - The eye docter has no clue how to fix my eyes?
-5.00 is a lot"
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.Eye pain w/o contacts
In know it is a lot in the day time i'm fine i can drive around i cant read the traffic signs with out my glasses but i know the colors of them so i'm good with that, plates nope i cant read either. People i can see a little if i focus really hard on them i can see there facial expressions. If it's in the dark time then no i wouldn't be able to see it i know i can rive okay in the day night time heck no everything is pitch black to me. So i'm not driving till i get my glasses,To be safe than sorry.When I wear my glasses more will my eye sight get better?
AgreedCan werein glasses
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.A question about my eyes...
I didn't even know i had a change in my vision the last time i went to they eye doctor was when i was 18 now that i'm 21 and just went in this week she told me i got worse and i must have them on no matter what.Glasses or contacts?:)
