I have a glasses prescription of -1.50 and find I am pretty blind without my glasses. Do most people around this prescription wear their glasses all the time?

How was the surgery for you? Do you think it’s worth it?

My prescription is +8.75 in each eye. Without glasses, I can get around okay, but can't read just about anything 🤓

I started wearing mine full time back when I was struggling to see the tv or the board at school. The difference of just seeing everything in detail when out and about is nice, rather than only just putting them on for important stuff, it's amazing how much you can miss without them. You could always try them full time for a week or so and see how you feel, can always go back to occasional use if you want.

Yea Iv been wearing them full time for about a week or so, and it’s made me realise how badly I need them really. I just thought in the grand scheme of things it’s considered a minor prescription so is it necessary to wear glasses full time

If you feel that wearing them is benefitting you then yeah I'd say it's worth it. There's no set point as to what prescription is needed for someone to wear them full time, just if you feel you want to. No point in lowering your quality of life because of worrying that others will think you aren't toughing it out enough or something. Do what makes you happy, see stuff.

Most people don't feel they need glasses full time until they get to -2. However, most people will find it beneficial wearing glasses with -1.5 when out.
I wouldn't suggest you wearing them for up close, but anything other than that you will find it easier doing with glasses on.

Yea exactly. Around the house I don’t need them apart from tv. But I always wear them once I leave the house, otherwise without my glasses I can’t recognise someone from 10 metres away 😂. Would you say that’s normal for a prescription of -1.50?

Yeah, that's pretty common.
I used to recognize people by the way they move and the way they are dressed. I couldn't see faces, but I could see the way they move and more or less the color and style of their clothes. I can still do that, but I don't rely on this anymore.

How predictable.
I too have recently worn my glasses most of the time (well, since the pandemic) and now I feel my vision got worse although I still see better than what I used to like 6 years ago when my vision was at its worst.
