    Do you think there being over the top?

    Favorite Answer:

    Not sure why your parents have a thing with eyeglasses??  It is pretty strange that they are more concerned about your looks than your vision.  Of course you don't have to take your glasses off, especially in the pub!!  And if you're old enough to go to the pub, then you certainly can decide for yourself!  You need to see in a place like that, as there's lots going on all around you.  As for at home, you should also wear them all the time, except maybe when you're right at your computer.  I also wear glasses for distance and only take them off at home, when I'm reading up close.  Another suggestion is contact lenses.  I actually switch between glasses and contacts depending on what I'm doing. If you're happy with your glasses, just keep wearing them. They make people look smarter too:).

    Why was I told to wear glasses full time?

    I'm 23 years old. I'm near sighted. I had a eye test as I was getting severe migraines. I wore glasses when I was in school for distance work then stopped wearing glasses shortly after leaving school. The optician told me I need glasses full time despite being able to see clearly for close up. My prescription is -0.50. My brother has the same prescription as me and not told to wear glasses full time. Why was I told to wear glasses full time?

    Is it normal for people to have one eye that appears smaller (or is squintier) when smiling in photos?

    Favorite Answer:

    Facial asymmetry is very common . Unless your face is one of the few that is perfectly symmetrical, it's not unusual for your facial features, including your eyes, to appear uneven. Most of the time, uneven eyelids are a cosmetic concern rather than a medical problem.

    can my eye doctor stop me from buying contact lenses from other places?

    Favorite Answer:

    No, they can not. Some may discourage it and give you reasons why you should buy it from them.   However, they can not prevent you from going somewhere else.  

    If they do things such as refuse to give you your prescription or charge you extra for it you should then report them to the FTC.

    when you get older, can't you use your computer as much ?

    Favorite Answer:

    There are some changes that may make it harder to use your computer as you age:

    Presbyopia means that even in your forties, you are not able to focus at near as well as you used to. Fortunately, there are glasses that will accomplish this for you. If you see great at distance and are having trouble at your computer, a pair of low powered over the counter readers will help. If you wear glasses, you may need bifocals. However, normal bifocals may not be the best for you to look at your computer with. In bifocals designed for normal use, the power that you can see your computer the best will be below your line of sight. You may need to do something special to see your computer without tilting your head back. The cheapest way to deal with this situation is PC Peekers. these are basically readers that are designed to fit inside your glasses. You could also have a custom clip made to go on your glasses. My office uses Chemestrie Clips. Single vision glasses could be made in the right power to see your computer clearly. There are also no line bifocal designs specific to computer use. Talk to your optometrist about these options at your next exam.

    You may also suffer from dry eye. Computer use decreases your blink rate so dryness is more of an issue when on a computer. Start with artificial tears when your eyes are uncomfortable.

    Should I go to the hospital for cornea abrasions? ?

    I went to an urgent care yesterday and the doctor there said he found very shallow scratches on my corneas. He prescribed me antibiotic eye drops and recommended that I should go to the ER. Is this something that I should go to the ER for, or let my eyes heal? 

    Any advice is appreciated, thanks.

    Laser treatment after cataracts!?

    Favorite Answer:

    Laser eye surgery works by reshaping the cornea. 

    It does not affect the lens of the eye. 

    So in theory, your gramps may be able to have laser eye surgery. 

    In reality the scarring of the cornea left over from the surgical incision made during cataract surgery may make him an unsuitable candidate for any form of laser eye surgery. The results are also never guaranteed: he could have surgery and find that he still needs glasses, but not as strong a prescription as before.
