hello, i currently wear glasses for distance which are of a fairly low prescription. i only wear them a couple of hours a day when in lectures but the question i had was if i were to wear them all the time will my eyes then get use to the level of "correction" resulting in my prescription gettng stronger?
I would recommend that you wear glasses for the distance when you need to see better. No one really knows the answer to that question, will wearing glasses cause the prescription to get stronger. Certainly, once you see better with the glasses, you will want to see the world better and wear them more often.
