So in February 2018 I got glasses and was somewhere along the lines of -0.50 and -0.75 and then I went back in April this year and now I’m -1.25 and -2.00 respectively. I was told in 2018 that I didn’t need to wear my glasses all the time, only for reading long distance (looking at the whiteboard) and I asked my optician this year whether not wearing them made it worse and she sad it’s unlikely. She was surprised at how much they’d worsened over a year. Any ideas why this is? Was it because I was going through puberty (I was 15/16 at the time) ?

Don't worry that much, your change is normal. There are quiet a lot of methods of myopia control now. There are lenses (both eyeglasses and contacts) designed to reduce the myopia progression. You can speak to your optometrist about it.

Not wearing glasses all the time can actually be beneficial, you may notice that without glasses you see better than others with your prescription.

Don't worry, your eyes are not bad at all.
