Should i wear my glasses full time
Q: Currently, I am 43 when I was 41 I got my first the prescription was +1.25 in both eyes and -0.5 cyl.
Now as I faced some difficulty in near Vision. I went again for a checkup and the new prescription is +2.5 and -0.75 sphere in the right eye and +2.75 and -0.5 in left eye along with 0.5 cylindrical in both eyes.
Now should I wear glasses full time as earlier? I wore them only while reading the paper but in last few days I notice I am not able to see price tags in supermarkets, can't see the name of the caller on a smartphone.
I am facing difficulties in reading the menu card and even while cooking when I have to check expiry dates.A:
As I see, the prescription is made only for near vision, for presbyopia, so u should wear them only for reading or working closely.
If you start wearing reading glasses, after a while, the eye muscles relax and you will see harder without the glasses, this is normal.
But your diopters doubled in such a short time, this is not normal, maybe the second eyeglass is too strong for you.
I think you should make another ophthalmic consultation, and check if you need separately diopters for far and close vision.
Hope this helps
