near sighted is when you can't see far away...far sighted, up close...appearance on the eye size depends on the prescription.....or glasses style....contacts prevent that issue....

short sited is when you cant see from a far distance (example: you cant see very well when you sit right at the back of the cinema and trying to see the screen)

Long sighted is when you cant see from close up (reading a newspaper)

see your optician if your concerned about it

u should see an optometrist

Short means you can't see things clearly at a distance. Long means you can't see things up close clearly, such as when you are reading. Most glass lenses don't change the appearance of your eye, your eyes appear the same size with or without glasses.

Short sighted is you cant focus on distance object,the word at far u see blur, and long sighted is you cant focus on near object, some people will confuse it with presbyope.But actually for presbyope is cause by lose the accommodate ability which brought by aging changes with the crystalline lens.If for normally long sighted people is more difficult to focus on near object than on far object.

For the eye appear much smaller normally just will happen to those which is very high power.If your power just about -1.00 or -2.00, don't need to worry, it sure won happen to you.And actually when you use to see some people wear a glasses and suddenly din wear glasses, so their eye just let you feel so only.

If you are short sighted (myopic) then you can see things close up but not far away. If you are long sighted (hyperopic), you can see things far away but can sometimes usually still things up close until you lose the ability to overcome your prescription with accommodation (this all depends on the size of your prescription and your age). If you glasses make your eyes appear smaller when you are wearing them, then you are short sighted, if your eyes look bigger with glasses then you are more likely to be longsighted.

1) take your glasses off.
2)try reading a book-of course it's not clear- try bringing it near your eyes slowly. see if it becomes clear then, you're shortsighted.
3) look at anything near you. try moving far away from that thing slowly. if it becomes clear then, you're farsighted.

hope it helps...

I'm short sighted,I can't see things at a distance clearly.Up close is fine.Long sighted is the opposite.

u ahve to go to optomertist..to check u..
it depends on the autoref..and charts test..
it is the most accurate way if u want to know ur vision well

You are talking about being near or far sighted. Near sighted is when you ware eye glasess to see at all times. Far sighted is to read and make it closer to you (happens only when people reach the age of 35) As far as your eyes getting smaller yes! Because your eyes is trying to see what you can't see when your not wearing your glasess. TRY CONTCT LENS

An optician will tell you if your long or short sighted!!

go to an optomertrist

Long sighted is long distant. Short sighted is when you need to be closer to the book or paper to read.

How to tell if you are short sighted or long sighted... go get your eyes tested?

Short sighted (myopia) will mean that without your glasses you can see stuff close up. If you have glasses you will find that they make everything look smaller.

Far sighted (hyperopia) isn't the opposite of being short sighted... ie. it doesn't mean that stuff in the distance is clear and things up close are blurry, its a difficult concept to describe but in people who have large amounts of hyperopia nothing is clear at any distance. If you have glasses you will find that they make everything look bigger.

Taking off your glasses may make your eyes APPEAR smaller to someone else. They won't actually make your eyes smaller. People just get used to your eyes being magnified by a certain amount by the glasses.
