How helpful are glasses?

Does wearing glasses continuously reduce the eye ‘power’? According to studies, on average, the answer is “no.” Also under-prescribing, on average, does prevent deterioration of refractive errors. The eyes grow from birth until sometime in your twenties. On average, hyperopia decreases until age 6 to 8 and then myopia increases until about 23. The amount varies by country. For example rural Nepal and Australia enjoy low frequencies of refractive errors while North American and urban China have particularly high rates of refractive errors. There are very limited options to reduce the spectacle power to zero. Luckily, they are very safe with a good track record. Get yourself checked for refractive errors and then discuss non-spectacle options. Call us now.
