Someone wrongly tagged as duplicate my previous question.

The question is: When a person who is nearsighted (eyeglass needs minus sign) doesn't wear corrective glasses, does it make the situation worse?

Someone tagged this question as duplicate of this which is opposite question.

  • OP here(forgot to finish registration): by worse situation I meant: does eyesight degrade further?

  • Welcome to MedicalSciences.SE. This is an incorrect way of rectifying what you perceive as an incorrectly closed question. If you ask a question, then find it incorrectly closed, you need to edit that question to clarify why it isn't a duplicate of the other question and ask for reopening by clicking the link below your question. My view, however, is that it is still a duplicate, even though the title of the question is opposite, because the answers contain the answer to your question too. Mar 12 at 9:20

    Does this answer your question? Can wearing eyeglasses cause your eyesight to degrade further? Mar 12 at 11:14

    @ChrisRogers You have to read the 2 sentences before that too to understand to what such refers to. IMHO such glasses in your quote refers to the "kinds of glasses given to children with crossed eye....". So that answer is actually a little bit misleading the way it is written, initially I was similarly confused to you.

    This question is not a duplicate of the indicated question. The statement about leading to permanent defective vision refers only to the specific corrective lens for lazy/crossed eyes.
