A common myth is that wearing glasses will make your eyes weaker.
Common vision problems, like near or far-sightedness, are caused by the shape of your eyeball being too long or too short which prevents the incoming light from focusing on the correct spot in your eye.
Why is my eyesight getting worse?
A change in eyesight can be caused by eye diseases, ageing, injury, or even other underlying medical conditions such as diabetes. Cataracts (a cloudiness of the lens in the eye) can also cause issues with glare sensitivity, poor night vision and ‘halos’ appearing around lights and is another age-related condition.
