I have been prescribed eyeglasses for shortsightedness that I do not wear all the time but only occasionally (driving, reading at a distance) in order not to create dependency, but I spend long hours working on my laptop or reading on other smaller screens which makes me feel very uncomfortable with dry, strained and tired eyes sometimes slightly bloodshot.
I understand that there are plus lenses available without prescriptions, with blue light filter for computer use, and I was wondering whether they would help me feel more comfortable during prolonged close-up focus but I am worried that they could cause further deterioration of my eyesight.
At the same time I have heard so many different opinions on this, some people say it can actually help reverse myopia and others that it worsens it, so I really hope you can provide advice on the best solution to reduce tiredness from close-up work without damaging my eyes, and if plus lenses are an option should I get +1 or higher?
Thank you very much
Thanks for your Question
You shouldn't wear plus lens for near because at your age, your eyes will accommodate to focus on near things. You should wear your eyeglasses all the time even for near tasks because this will reduce eye strain and visual fatigue.
You will not create dependency if your wear your eyeglasses all time, this is a common misconception and it is wrong
