    I Have bad eyes. My Parents are Refusing to take me to the Eye Doctors and I Have serious Long Distance Problems. I Have also found a Half Remedy Which Involves My Stretching My Skin Near My Eye (Making My Eyes More Narrow) Which Makes My Sight Easier. I've been doing this for around 2 Years and have Brouses on the Spot I Stretch them. Is This Dangerous?

    Take yourself to an optician. You need an eye test and probably glasses. If your parents are refusing to take you they are terribly irresponsible. If you are concerned about cost have a look around for the cheapest place. I think specsavers is meant to be pretty good.
    I would think that, although not the best solution, the stretching is not dangerous. The bruises will probably be from pushing too hard while you do it. That said I suggest you don't do it too much. It's not a proper solution and the bruising, although not dangerous, is not great.

    What you are doing with your eyes may not be dangerous, but poor eyesight can be. You could not see things like obstacles or oncoming vehicles in the distance and you could also find that you are not allowed to drive (there is a sight test).

    if your parents are refusing to take you then a message from school may motivate them. the skin pulling will not adjust your vision. if all else fails you can see an optician without a parent being present

    You definitely need to see an optician. If your parents refuse to take you, consider speaking to your school or GP about this. Are you allowed out with friends without supervision? If it comes down to it, you could book an appointment and say you're meeting friends. Your eye tests should be free because of your age, so you don't have to worry about that. You should really stop pulling your skin like that too. If it's causing bruising, then please don't. Does squinting help? It would be a lot better than damaging the skin around your eyes. The last thing you want to do is injure the area around your eyes, because it's not going to do anything good for your eyesight
