So I have been wearing glasses for 7 years, I am 16 now. And my eyes seem to just keep getting worse; like I need a new prescription every year and it's always worse. I don't know what it means but optometrist said my vision was like negative 1.5 or something? which I'm assuming is bad because if i take my glasses off everything more than a metre away is really blurry. i was thinking of laser surgery but will my eyes continue to get worse afterwards? i don't want to be blind! omg... freaking out so much right now :(

  • Read the date: Hope you learned that vision changes at your age were/are normal. At your age I could only see a few inches. You're doing better than I did.

    Talk a an eye doctor, an ophthalmologist about surgery, but guessing until you are grown and your vision is more settled they won't want to risk that.

    Have you asked about contacts?

  • Negative 1.5 is not that bad. People of your age usually have this problem. Wear your glasses continuously and your number will become constant after some time. Negative number means you cannot see things that are far from you. Glasses will help, just wear them continuously. Along with it take care of your eating habits. Try to eat fish a lot it helps to improve vision.
