Doctor afternoon ~ Usually, when we buy glasses, after measuring the minus eyes, we have to adjust them again (usually we wear glasses for temporary measurements). I plan to buy contact lenses through an online shop, do I have to give the original minus value? Thank you Heuheu.

Hi snnrhknnsnn,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Nearsightedness (minus eyes, myopia) can cause sufferers to be limited in their activities due to difficulties in observing objects that are far away. This condition is also more prone to causing the eyes to feel tired, resulting in soreness, pain, blurred vision, and various other complaints. If not handled properly, minus high eyes can reduce the productivity of the sufferer, for example in studying, working, and so on.


Overcoming nearsightedness is ideally done by surgery. However, many sufferers are not interested in doing this procedure for various reasons.


For this reason, there is an alternative to correcting nearsightedness, namely by using glasses or minus contact lenses. The choice of glasses or contact lenses must of course be adjusted to the patient's vision (sharp vision). This can be determined by undergoing a series of tests, including visual function tests, for example using a Snellen curve, and so on. Therefore, in choosing the right glasses or contact lenses, ideally you should consult directly with an ophthalmologist.


It is not recommended to use glasses or contact lenses without a doctor's examination, because the use of vision aids with inappropriate eye vision is more at risk of making your eye minus actually increase. Jam, vision, contact lens selection must also be done by considering various other factors, such as color, diameter, thinness, moisture content, and so on. So, you shouldn't order it online without a doctor's examination beforehand.

Choosing contact lenses

I hope this helps.
