Should these glasses be worn full time?
My sis just got glasses with the following prescription:
OI -1.75
OD -2.00

Her doctor said it was up to her how much she wore them, but she asked me (a full time contacts wearer with a prescription higher than hers)whether a low prescription like that was worth wearing her glasses since she gets up till she goes to bed at night?
Additional Details
sorry I copied the presc. wrong
I meant OS. -1.75
OD. -2.00

i say she should keep it full time. the doc described the glasses because she needs them. not putting or wearing u'r glasses to see can strang the eyes which can lead to blair or poor vision. i use to have lower prescription too. i decided not to wear my glasses. as time when on (from stranging of the eye), my vision became poor. i when back to my doc and she said, '' it's important to wear u'r glasses at all time. not wearing then could lead to poor vision because u'r stranging u'r eye to see.'' from experanced, i greatly advice u'r sis to keep her glasses on at all time. better be safe them sorry. hoped i helped and best of luck in the future!

its best to wear them all the time, i have a low prescription as well and i wear mine all the time.

I would. The level of blur she must be experiencing would annoy me. But it's a matter of personal choice really.

question is does she need to wear them full time to see better.

Her Dr. is correct. With that prescription, it really is up to her. My prescription is lower than your sister's, but I wear my glasses all the time. Really, I could go without them at some times, but it is more convenient to keep them on, then to keep putting taking them off and on all day. It will not hurt her at all to wear them all the time. So, put them on and keep them on.

think of a prescription in the sense of dollars... takes 4 quarters to make a dollar... it takes (4) .25 for a full diopter of power... your sisters is a dollar sevent five in one eye and 2 bucks in the other.... general rule of thumb is anything over .75, maybe 1.00 should be worn as much as possible.... at her prescription id say she would benefit to wear constantly, sun up to sun down... unless reading... she can see just fine up close. (most near sighted people find it more comfortable to take glasses off for up close until they are really used to them) Distance and intermediate is her problem. wear the glasses

I have almost the same prescription as you -1.75 on each eye, I dont wear my glasses unless driving or seeing the board... I used to wear them full time, actually my prescription was -2.50 at one point but over the summer i just stopped wearing them

my last check up i was -1.75 (barely) but in the everyday world their more then fine...

Now i realize my RX is not high even though sometimes it feels like it and on a bright sunny day I forget that I even wear glasses :P

in the end its your choice, if you do wear them try to use it for distance only, if your doing close-up work with them on it could lead to progression...

good luck!

i have the EXACT prescription, (weird). yes, i wear contacts full time and if i had glasses i would wear them all day, because i hate not seeing clearly.
