Hi I have a sister 21yrs old. she has been using specs since 10yrs. she accidentally broke her lense last week and she went for check up. she is -5 and -6 myopic now. doctor precribed her some lenses but she say they are too powerful and would prefer the earlier though doc insisted. she is in her 2nd year university. Now, could her studies 10 hr study be a cause for further deterioration?and could this lead to total blindness sooner though she is physically ok? may be what should she do to avoid further problem? thanks
Study does not cause blindness. Some people have trouble adjusting to new glasses. Most eye MDs and optoms will do a recheck at no charge and make one change at no extra cost. She could also ask for her money back and return the glasses or ask the old prescription -5 and -6 be put in new frames.
Be sure she is seeing an eye MD ophthalmologist and not an optometrist.
