Eyesight thing... watch

    Well, from a past few days whenever I read books tears come into my eyes and when I stop reading them tears vanish. I feel that my eyesight is pretty good, as nothing seems blurred to me whenever I read books OR do daily routine works. Can any tell me what is wrong with my eyes?

    Or should I go to an eye specialist?
    Before I started wearing glasses/contacts, I used to get this when I was really tired.

    You don't even feel the contacts in your eyes, if you get decent quality ones! I've forgotten they were there a few times, and gone to take off my makeup. They then got 'lost' somewhere in my eyes :/ Anyway, my point is don't be worried about the eye test and whatever comes after, you may only need to wear glasses ocasionally, especially since you don't seem to be affected by your vision on a daily basis

    I just read the books of my science subjects at A level.
    They'd make me cry too, OP!

    But being serious, are you really tired? Because this happens to me when I'm burning the candle at both ends (as it were) and a good night's sleep usually sorts me out! I know it sounds silly but it's worth a go before you waste time with opticians or whatever.. although if it doesn't work you should definitely go, as putting unnecessary strain on your eyes is never good!

    But doesn't contacts change the color of someone's eyes? I heard that...

    I don't think so that it happens because I'm tired. I'm always kinda tired but I get a very good sleep of 8-10 hours everyday. Seems like I need to visit an optician.

    Only if you're starring in the latest Hollywood blockbuster/you're a Russian spy. Normal contact lenses don't change your eye colour at all.

    Cool. So I've decided that if it's for long term I'll wear contacts, and if it's for short term I'll wear spectacles. That's it. Now I just hope that one of my family member takes me to the optician. They're actually pretty busy and I don't want to weaken my eyes more and more.

    I'm 16 right now, so most probably it will be short term, right?
    No one knows. The optometrist might suggest you some exercises to work on accommodation, usually if the problem is really tiny they help and you would not need glasses.
