    I ve had glasses for about a year and a half and wear them part time and there's no harm done so far. What did the optician say to you?

    What's your prescription?

    As a future optometrist I'll say there is no difference either way. No harm proven from not wearing glasses and from wearing them full time.
    However, from my own experience, once you start wearing them full-time, you will find it harder and harder seeing without them on...

    I wore mine part time through the last ~2 years of school. (I got them when i was 15, -2.0 prescription). Ended up wearing full time not long after leaving school, just became so much less effort and actually being able to see **** 100% of the time was nice. Although my prescription changed to -2.25 5 years later after I was prescribed -2.0. Really have no idea what to make of that .

    There is nothing to make of that, rather than you will see blurry from more than 50cm...
    I am sure you noticed that without glasses now you see much less...

    Yeah actually. No idea what the actual correction numbers mean. When I was 17 I could remember JUST being able to make the legal requirement to drive with my vision unaided (read a standard plate from 20.5m). Now I would say Im not even close even though my prescription only changed by 12.5%.

    I need to spend less time staring at bloody screens .

    I'm going to stick wearing it part time as the optician said my eye sight went slightly worse. I think my prescription was 2.25

    I was prescribed with glasses when I was 13, started really wearing the at 16-17.
    On several occasions I was wearing them full-time, when I did my vision got to the point I couldn't even read without them.
    Now I wear them much less and my vision improved, I can even use the computer without them sometimes.

    I wear glasses only if I have to. My eyesight deteriorates further when I wear them often.

    Well when do you see yourself wearing them.
    If you wear them all the time unnecessarily your eyes can get used to it and you'll find that your eyesight can worsen.

    I used to wear glasses part time between the ages of 13 and 16 - then 17-18 i wore them full time cos eye sight got worse and now i wear contacts because i hate glasses - left dents at the top of my nose looool.
    It just depends on you really - if you feel the need to wear them all the time, then do so.

    I got prescribed glasses at the age of 8 i know terrible! I never used to wear them but started to wear them full time at 14 (im now 15 almost 16) and to honest i dont really feel like theres a bid difference so i would reccommend only wearing them when you need them. I would also reccommed contact but im way too scared to get them incase anything goes wrong!

    My optician told me that if I didn't wear my glasses full time my eyes would deteriorate. Did I listen? Of course not. Did they deteriorate? Oh boy, yes. I really regret it now...
