    My -3 lenses are about half a centimetre at their thickest. And they fit into my nice small frames well.

    My optician puts the line over the number too. It's just a minus sign.
    Well if mines -3 too, then that size doesnt sound too bad. I just measured my current lense and its 2mm thick.
    Thanks Juno, you have been so helpful these past few days. I love you.

    Glasses do not improve your eyes, they just aid your vision by compensating for any deformities in the eye. As the body grows, so do the deformities. Your vision will get worse when the eyes grow.

    an optometrist is essentially an optician.

    learn to google.
    So my eyes will never be improved :eek: Will carrots do it? :rolleyes:

    What about this laser eye surgery? How old do you have to be to get that?

    Lol, I have so many things planned for my adulthood, laser eye surgery, teeth surgery, plastic surgery. I need to marry a millionaire :rolleyes:

    Carrots will help us, if you sharpen an edge and poke yourself in the eye:yy:

    Don't eat too many, you'll turn yellow.

    Okay once again: it's not "an irregular shape of the eye", but of the 'wall' sorta speak at the back, inside your eyes. I've been seeing many opticians/oculists for over 16 years and my mum for 20 years more than me.

    If your glasses are 0.5cm thick and you only have -3, that is very strange. My glasses were like that when I was a toddler 'cos the lenses were plastic back then. In glass, they can make them thinner. Mine are only 2, max.3mm on the sides and about 1mm in the middle, and I've got -10 on my left eye.

    Yes you can get special conctact lenses, but they'll be slightly more expensive (not that much really). I have month lenses but no idea what they cost and it's prolly different to yours anyway since I'm not British.

    Yes it can be a genetic thing. For me, it runs in the family. Wouldn't know about the lack of sleep but it certainly makes your eyes sting more.

    Well, I made the measurement up by looking at it and going "hmm" so it could be a bit different. Mine are just standard lenses though. It sounds like you have the thinner lenses that you can get but cost more money.

    BlueAngel, I looked into laser eye surgery, and at Boots you need to be over 21 and have had a stable prescription for a year.

    well thats the reason then, my dad has wore glasses all his life, and all my family are short sighted, but not as bad as me. Its probably due to too much tsring.

    That's right, computering makes it worse. :p:

    And yes I have the special thinner ones - a must in my case! I once saw a woman with glasses like this *holds arms out really wide* it was hilarious. (And also kinda scary I don't want that...)
