My prescription is - 0.5 and - 0.75. How often should I wear glasses or spectacles?

My vision is pretty bad so I can answer this question as I have been through this stage with my first prescription glasses.

Your vision at this point would be 5 and 6, which is a bit more.

The first time I bought prescription glasses it was in this range, and in my experience without wearing glasses, I can see the time on the GPS while sitting in the back seat of a car. That was several years ago, and right now, I can't make out anything on the GPS even though it's bigger than before.

Until now, with the vision of, someone should be able (if you are in school) to see the blackboard well unless you are a

My vision is pretty bad so I can answer this question as I have been through this stage with my first prescription glasses.

Your vision at this point would be 5 and 6, which is a bit more.

The first time I bought prescription glasses it was in this range, and in my experience without wearing glasses, I can see the time on the GPS while sitting in the back seat of a car. That was several years ago, and right now, I can't make out anything on the GPS even though it's bigger than before.

So far, with the vision of, someone should be able (if you are in school) to see the blackboard well unless you are at the end. Basically, there should be no problem affecting normal life, such as not being able to distinguish facial expressions and read signs. -0.5 to -0.75 would be a little lower than average

A view of your range is not that bad at all. I look worse, where vision is greater than -5.00 on prescription (basically around mine). Those with this prescription depth cannot even see the ground clearly and cannot make out faces.

However, the problem is not about vision, it is about keeping it at that level. As long as you keep your eyesight in this range, you won't even need glasses (unless it's safer to drive) until it gets worse. You will only need to continue resting your eyes if you exhaust them excessively and might even repair yourself eventually. Well a vision of -0.5 and -0.75 is quite low.

Now there are SPH and CYL. If your CYL is disoriented, it is best to wear glasses that help correct astigmatism.

Just remember not to wear deeper prescription glasses as that would ruin your eyes.

As an optician with a lot of experience. I am licensed to dispense in Ohio. I have an advanced certification from the American Board of Optics. I am also certified by the National Contact Lens Examiners. I will tell you what I have said to many people in the last 35 years. You must wear your glasses when you want to see clearly. For most people, that is most of the time. Some people don't care if what they see is clear. For many people, even small changes to recipes can make a big difference in how well they see the world around them.

Your vision is unique to you. It is your perception of the world around you. If you have any objection to wearing glasses, is it style or comfort? If it is comfortable, consult your optician for an adjustment. Find a good licensed or certified optician. If it's the style, try a different style. If you just don't like glasses, consider contact lenses.

The bottom line is that you are the only person who can decide if you want to see better.

I'd say only use them when you need them.

Your vision loss is too small to be significant. Even watching TV from 10 feet would be fine without glasses.

With -0.50 and -0.75, you should be able to pass the driving test. It will pass the controller even with -1.00, so you don't have to worry.

Small refractive errors like -0.25 and -1.00 are negligible, even distance vision is not blurry enough to need glasses. Most people will need them, however, at -1.25 or -1.50. This is when the blur becomes noticeable and will most likely affect you.

My prescription is -1.0 and I never wear glasses.

My prescription is -1.0 and I never wear glasses. That's because I can see 20/40.

My actual glasses are -3.25 and I mainly use my deep focus reading classes which are -2.5 and -2.75, that is, with them I have exactly the same as you. I never wear my real long distance glasses at home. I could live perfectly without long-distance glasses (outside, I wear sunglasses most of the year). My first glasses were -1.75 and -2.0. I didn't use them only when I needed them, like when I was waiting for a bus so I could watch it and of course at school as well as on TV. Only in the military did I start wearing them regularly so I could see who to salute.

Never. Well not really, but seriously, use them ONLY WHEN NEEDED, which means:

1.Sitting away from the blackboard

1.drive at night

3.Watch a movie from over 20 feet

4.Walk the streets at night if you want to read street signs and recognize people

Other than that don't use them, ESPECIALLY not for close jobs

Use them in all situations where you find lack of clear vision a problem. Probably not reading and writing. Watching TV maybe almost certainly helps. You will most likely see a whiteboard / wall screen again. Live cinema / theater almost certainly. Driving for the good of all, please do it.

Obviously it's up to you, but the above should be a guide of sorts.

If you can pass a driving test, then you are not legally required to wear glasses. There is a phenomenon called lens-induced axial lengthening which basically means that wearing minis lenses makes the eyes more myopic. With proper visual hygiene, your vision is very likely to be 20/20 without glasses. That means practicing the 20/20/20 rule during close-ups, such as when reading books, using mobile devices, or on the computer, to get more distance outdoors. Also, you can try to find an object to focus on like a license plate, walk backwards until it starts to blur, and blink to try.

You are a bit myopic. The best answer is that you should use them whenever you want or need a little extra clarity. This will be more pronounced in low light situations, such as driving at night or in a movie theater. They will have less effect in the sun on a bright day.

There are no rewards or benefits for not wearing glasses if you need them to make you see clearly and easily. You may find that you don't need them to watch TV or a computer screen, but they will probably make it much easier to see the text on a blackboard or other classroom screen. You almost certainly won't need them for a book or a phone screen, but if you go outside on a clear night, you'll probably see hundreds of times as many stars with them.

But like I said, there is no point in wasting effort trying to read something on a table twenty feet away. It will not 'strengthen' your vision, it will only give you a

Do not use but look for eye exercises General health exercises Nutritious diet Do not eat in excess or in excess Walk a lot and D3 and supplements and minerals A little Zn in excess too

splash your eyes 36 times a day with cold water occasionally look out the side window from a long distance while working blink many times

If you don't like using them, you don't have to! But for driving and watching movies, you will like to use them!
