eye prescription
I'm 28 years old and everytime I go for my annual eye test my prescription is higher and higher. My prescription is now -7.00 in each eye!!! My eye doctor tells me that my eyes are heathy. What (if anything) can I do to stop this from happening? Nobody in my family has a prescription as high as me. I don't want to go blind!

Calm down Mrs MaGoo you're just myopic or near-sighted. It doesn't end in blindness and sooner or later the prescription stops progressing. There is nothing you can do to stop it. It's like a kid that really grows fast and the mom wants the kid to stop at 6 foot tall and not go to 6 foot 5 inches. You just can't put the brakes on.

See and Eye MD ophthalmologist every year for an exam. You might also see a Eye MD that specializes in refractive surgery. At -7.00 you are on the border of what can be corrected with LASIK.
