It's definitely not recommended to wear your glasses more than you need to. But wearing glasses doesn't permanently alter your vision, but it can make your eyes 'lazy' by losing the blur adaption ability but this comes back after you stop wearing your glasses.

Shakes when acceleration?

From the question, I'm assuming you see the mirror shake when accelerating. That would be due to the entire car shaking a bit, which in my experience typically gets worse during acceleration. The shaking could be caused by a number of issues, among them front or rear tires wearing unevenly or not balanced correctly; front or rear suspension wear; steering system wear; play in the steering due to worn gears; worn out engine mounts; uneven brake rotor wear; or something I haven't thought of. I recommend taking it to a trusted mechanic or a front end specialist to have them inspect all the components, and perhaps take the car for a test drive. If you're not feeling any definite shake in the whole car, it may be just minor wear that will not need service in the immediate future, but will likely just get worse over time.

My eye doctor said I have astigmatism in my eyes. He explained it but I still dont really understand what he said. Should I worry

Don't worry - Astigmatism is a condition where the conrnea isn't perfectly round. In order to see properly, glasses or lenses are used to correct this imperfection, allowing the person to see properly. It can often happen alongside near or far sightedness but isn't dangerous.

What is Myopia? My optician just wrote it on my daughters medical records and I know that she needs glasses but that word just made me very nervous.

Don't worry - myopia is just a fancy way of saying nearsighted ie finds it hard to see things that are far away. This is the most common vision complaint in children and can be easily rectified with glasses.

I heard that its not enough to wear dark glasses to protect your eyes from the sun. You need special lenses. Is that true?

yes you need to get polarized lenses not just dark glasses if you want to protect your eyes from UV rays. This is also true for children as the harmful impact of UV rays builds up over a lifetime and is not just something that affects adults.

Is it unhealthy for your eyes to have eye surgery to correct your vision? I really want to get rid of my glasses as I hate them but am worried about the long term effects of the surgery.

In the meantime there are no reports of any long term damage after the eye surgery. The cornea is very sturdy and apparently suffers no long term effects from the corrective surgery. But if you are worried you should talk it all through with your doctor before you have it done.

What is low vision?

Low vision is a term describing a level of vision below normal (20/70 or worse) that cannot be corrected with conventional glasses. Low vision is not the same as blindness. People with low vision can use their sight. However, low vision may interfere with the performance of daily activities, such as reading or driving.

What is "lazy eye?"

The medical term for "lazy eye" is AMBLYOPIA: a healthy eye that does not see. The eye became amblyopic either because the eyes were crooked or one eye had a very different refractive error than the other. To eliminate double vision the brain preferred to use one eye only.

Patching the GOOD EYE during childhood is the most common method to force an amblyopic eye back to duty. Patching has no effect on the eye muscles per se; it simply forces the brain to use the unpatched eye.

Most authorities claim that amblyopia must be corrected before age 4. After that deadline, the visual apparatus is fully matured and no additional improvement in vision should be expected.

There are always exceptions! Interestingly, should a person with poor vision due to amblyopia lose sight in their GOOD EYE, the vision should return in the amblyopic eye - even in adults. Therefore, it is important to always wear eye protection. You never know when you're going to need that second eye.

Past age 8, amblyopia does not progress - the final vision stabilizes. If you sense a decrease in the vision in either eye, do not blame it on the amblyopia. There is some different explanation. If you haven't had a comprehensive eye evaluation for several years this would be an excellent time to get a precise refraction.

Why do i see a blury target when i look thu the scope with myglasses and it is clear without them

Because your glasses (prescription or reading) are configured to correct your "far" sighted vision deficiency. Even though the scope is located at a very close distance to your eye, the point your scope is focusing to/at is many? yards in the distance. If you're like many of us, you can see satisfactorily at a distance, but your arms aren't long enough to allow you to read a magazine?
