Some people believe that wearing corrective eyeglasses worsens their vision, and others say they will become more dependent on them than when they first began. The truth is that glasses do not make your vision worse. Instead, they help improve your vision. So do not be hesitant to wear your prescription eyeglasses. Wearing the wrong prescription glasses may lead to eye strain in adults. At the same time, in children, it may cause faster myopia progression and lead to lazy eyes (amblyopia), crossed eyes, squinting, and other issues. You may also experience blurry vision, tired eyes, and headaches. Improper retina development may also occur in children requiring prescription eyeglasses but not wearing them. It is essential to use the right prescription to correct your vision impairment.
Wearing the Wrong Prescription Glasses and Uncorrected Vision Can Result in Eye Strain Which May Cause the Following Symptoms:
Soreness in or Around the Eyes.
Itching or Burning Eyes.
Blurry or Double Vision.
Soreness in the Shoulders, Neck, or Back Due to Poor Posture.
Dry Eyes or Excessive Tearing.
Inability to Keep Your Eyes Open.
Various Factors Can Cause Your Vision to Worsen or Decline Over Time, Including Severe Eye Conditions That Can Be Managed and Treated. Vision May Decline Due to the Following:
Eye Trauma: Wear Protective Gear to Prevent Injury to Your Eyes if You Work in a Hazardous Environment.
Age: Aging is Inevitable and Comes With Various Challenges to Your Vision. Taking Good Care of Your Overall Body Health Goes a Long Way in Maintaining Eye Health.
Surgery: if You Have Undergone Eye Surgery, Ensure You Follow Your Doctor’s Instructions Keenly.
Eye Disease: Various Eye Conditions Can Affect Your Vision, Such as Cataracts, Diabetes, or Glaucoma.
Ultraviolet Radiation: the Harmful Ultraviolet (Uv) Rays Can Harm Your Eyes. Wear Sunglasses Whenever You Are Outdoors to Protect Your Eyes From Sun Damage. The Best Sunglasses Should Have a Uv Protective Coating to Protect Your Eyes From the Sun’s Rays.
Taking Care of Your Eyes Helps Keep Your Vision in Good Condition. Regularly Go for Eye Tests and Check-ups. If You Have a Regular Prescription, You Can Talk to Your Ophthalmologist About Alternative Treatments for Your Eyes. Such Options May Include Laser Surgery, a Minimally Invasive, Quick, and Painless Procedure That Can Effectively and Permanently Correct Your Vision.
Consume a Healthy, Balanced Diet to Maintain and Improve Your Eye Health, Such as Eating Vitamin a, Which Improves Eyesight. Vitamin a Protects Your Eyes, but It Does Not Improve Vision.
Exercise Regularly and Avoid or Quit Smoking.
Do Not Sleep Without Removing Your Contact Lenses; Avoid Keeping Them in Longer Than Recommended. Disinfect Them Accordingly and Follow Your Doctor’s Instructions on How to Take Care of Them.
Get Your Regular Eye Exams to Know When to Get New Prescriptions. You Should Get Eye Exams if:
You Wear Contact Lenses and Should Visit Your Ophthalmologist Annually
First Exam Before Age 3
Annually for Ages 3 and Older
More Frequently if You Have Certain Vision or Eye Health Disorders Such as Myopia, Amblyopia, and Dry Eye.
