Question: Is It Bad For Your Eyes To Not Wear Glasses?

Wearing glasses weakens the eyes.

It can lead to eye strain and fatigue in adults, and it can worsen refractive errors, particularly myopia, in children.

Glasses actually adjust for the lenses inside your eyes, adding a level of refraction to sharpen the image processed by your brain.

Do your eyes become dependent on glasses?

Wearing glasses makes your eyes dependent on them.

You may want to wear your glasses more often so that you can see clearly, but your glasses aren’t changing your eyes so that they become dependent on your eyeglasses. Similarly, wearing glasses with the wrong prescription won’t ruin your eyes.

Do readers weaken your eyes?

The bottom line: reading glasses don’t damage your eyes — they just improve how well you see. And because presbyopia progresses with age, your near vision without corrective lenses will gradually worsen whether or not you wear reading glasses.

Can eyesight be improved naturally?

Many eye exercises are touted as ways to naturally improve eyesight and overcome nearsightedness. We can’t correct our vision without professional help, and there’s no quick-and-easy fix for eyesight problems. But with tools such as good nutrition and diet, you can still help your eyesight naturally and on your own.
