Generally speaking glasses are for central vision problems not peripheral so glasses don't help peripheral vision. There are many causes of lost peripheral vision. Some can be helped with medicine, surgery, injections. Only an ophthalmologist (Physician Eye MD) can answer your specific questions after determining why you have lost peripheral vision.

In general peripheral vision loss is difficult to treat.
