I'm finding that I have to squint even with my glasses on, do you think i may need stronger lenses? is it common, at my young age, to have repidly deteriorating eyesight? *concerned*

Yes, it happens to everyone. If you are long or short sighted you will get progressively more so. I'm needing new lenses too.

I think I might be both long AND short sighted... is this possible?!

When was the last time you paid a visit to the opticians?

Last January I think, it's only since then that I've needed glasses.

I was worried I'd be blind by the age of 30 if my eyes kept worsening at the rate they seemed to have been over the past 5 years. So you'll be relieved to know, that generally the deterioration in eyesight tends to level out between 18-21.

I started wearing glasses at 11, and my eyes have stopped getting worse at 18/19.

They can be expensive, but you can get a 1/3 off the price if you're under 17 I think, then around 20% off. Otherwise head for the sales! The way I see it is that I wear my glasses most days of the year - so my parents didn't mind getting me a nice pair.

Good point! Although I'm 18, so no under-17 discounts for me !

Yep, head for Boots then - but independents are often good. I got my latest pair half price for 120.

Well, I'm gonna be respectful, not bother looking and assume that you're already sexy.
