    Hi people,
    long time no see, whats up?!
    Today i was trying on one of my friends glasses and I found that i could see 'darker' n better than without them!
    does that mean I got some eye problem?? :eek:
    I dnt want to see an eye specialist yet because it will take time!!

    Probably i was able to see darker because the glasses were a bit dark than the normal glasses and that dark makes things appear better?
    Am I right?

    Is that OKAY?

    The glasses will be to the prescription of your friend, i.e. suited to your friend, not you. Glasses aren't to give you vision better than everyone else, but to correct the problems of dodgy eyesight, by refracting the light. When you wore the glasses the light was refracted in such a way that it didn't hit your optic nerve (or whatever it was we were supposed to learn for GCSE Biology), whereas without them it does hit it. Thus you see better without them.

    It might mean that ur eyesight is a bit worse than a person who doesn't need to where glasses but it may depend on the amount of light entering ur eye.
    Not saying u need glasses though. I wouldn't get into it that much atm.
    If u can see fine theres no problem with ur eyesight.

    If you're worried about it then get your eyes checked. I remember when I went for a eye test because I was getting headaches, and I discovered that I really needed them!

    Don't understand this 'darker' stuff (unless he's got those light sensitive lenses). Anyways seeing darker images isn't a good thing. If your that worried just get an eye test at Specsavers (free if your in full time education).

    If you've never noticed anything wrng with your eyes before though, i doubt theres anything wrong.

    I have been careful in choosing the word darker rather than clearer

    I can normally see properly without glasses and by that I really mean to say that I got no problem..
    But yesterday's incident bothered me..

    As I said, when I used those glasses I found that blue appeared darker with them and other colours such as black appeared darker than it does with the normal vision.. The glasses were made a shade little darkder than the normal vision and I did mention that before aswell, does the darker shade count towards me or not?
    I never experienced any sort of vision problem, maybe I m just imagining it..

    So, you're saying you've never experienced any vision problem, and you're wondering whether you need glasses. My guess is 'no'.

    Just go to the opticians. Asking here will get you nowhere. Its a 15 minute job, better than sitting around worrying about it.

    Hi there,

    I actually work in an opticians. You'd be quite surprised at the sort of minor symptoms people come to us with, so I wouldn't worry about visiting an optician with this small problem.

    From what you're saying, it doesn't sound as if there's anything to worry about, and seeing an optometrist will definetly help settle your mind.

    Good Luck!

    actually you dont see the area of light projected onto your optic nerve - thats your blind spot.
    You mean fovea perhaps?
