Myth 1: Wearing glasses can make your vision worse.
Have you ever wondered if wearing glasses makes your eyes worse? This myth probably stems from one of two places.
First, many people don’t realize that vision usually gets worse over the years, no matter when you start wearing glasses. With age, a condition called presbyopia naturally sets in. Presbyopia is when the lens of the eye slowly loses its focusing ability, causing deteriorating vision. Some people mistakenly associate their gradual visual deterioration with starting to wear glasses, but it’s actually due to age.
