How Often Should I Wear Recommended Eyeglass? by Arabesque(m): 2:14pm On Aug 10, 2020
Hello doctors in the house. I was having blurry vision with an eye so I went to see an optometrist. I was diagnosed with astigmatism so a corrective eyeglass was recommended.

Now that I have the eyeglass, I'm not sure how often I'm supposed to wear it. The doctor said I should wear it whenever I'm going out but as a freelancer, I hardly go out.

Please is there any side effect to wearing the eyeglass indoor?
Thanks.

The frequency depends on how clear enough you can see without it .

Thanks. Since it's only one eye with the problem, I can see without using it much. But I'm just asking since the doctor said wearing it will correct the eye defect.

Not true. Once you start, you have started. You can as well assume it is a fashion accessory and buy it in different colours and shapes.

Now that I have the eyeglass, I'm not sure how often I'm supposed to wear it.

Depends on how bad your eyesight is (how much you can do without it) or how often you want to wear it. Most likely the former.

None that I know of. The worst that will happen is, you will wear it so much it becomes a part of your face and you can’t imagine yourself without it...They could be pretty addictive- clear vision is addictive.

Wear it anytime you need to see better ― daily, occasionally, or once in a blue moon.

Eyeglasses do not correct. LASIK, however, does.

Hmm. So it's more like a vision enhancement? With your years of experience, hope it doesn't worsen the situation of the eye when you're not using it?

Depends on what it is. If its defect that you were born with, its a different story. I wish I could give you hope but eyesight declines as you grow older.

Staring at computers and tv and phones also do not help.

I don't know what the cost is in Nigeria. It's about $1500/eye at most clinics in my city here.

Thanks Miss. I feel hurtful headaches these days especially at night when I'm not wearing it.
