DOES WEARING GLASSES WORSEN MY VISION?
Wearing glasses does not cause any harm to your eyes or make your vision worse. These misconceptions often stem from misunderstandings about how glasses work. Glasses do not weaken or strengthen your eyes; they simply assist in correcting refractive errors and provide clear vision. Wearing the appropriate prescription glasses can alleviate eye strain and allow your eyes to relax while focusing.
Also, Refractive errors, such as myopia and presbyopia, are common conditions that can affect anyone at various stages of life. These conditions result in blurred or distorted vision due to the shape of the eye affecting how light is focused on the retina.
Glasses work by compensating for these refractive errors, allowing light to properly focus on the retina and providing clear vision. They do not cause further deterioration or make the underlying condition worse. In fact, wearing the correct prescription glasses can greatly improve visual clarity and reduce the associated discomfort and strain, such as headaches or eye fatigue.
It's important to consult with an optometrist to ensure you have the right prescription and to address any concerns or questions you may have about wearing glasses.
