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?
