At Metrovision Optical Boutique we are bombarded with questions related to the human eye. Why do we blink so much? Should I wear contacts instead of glasses? Do these frames look good on my face? It’s what we’re here for and it’s what we love to do. It’s also why we have this blog. We want to present as much pertinent information to educate you as both a customer and someone who cares a great deal about the health of their vision.
However, there is one question that we are asked more than any other question. We’re always happy to answer it but we figured putting it out there on this site might spread the word. That question is:
Will wearing eyeglasses make my eyes weaker?
The simplest answer we can give is a definitive and resounding NO! But, we understand this question and the concerns that come along with it, especially if you’re about the start wearing glasses for the first time in your life.
Allow us to explain.: Eyeglass lenses are a device that focuses light directly on the retina. They will not cause your eyes to weaken. Individuals become more dependent on their glasses because unfocused vision is undesirable. Once clear vision is established, people will desire clear focused vision constantly. So use your glasses properly and you won’t have any problems. But if you do, you need to stop by and see us so we can get to the bottom of them.
