Question:
What are the consequences if I don’t wear my glasses all the time? Will my vision get worse?

Answer:
Depending on how old you are, it is likely that the reading correction will increase as you age (this is called presbyopia, or the age-related loss of focus for reading and close-up vision). The reason to use the glasses is to both make you see better and to reduce eye strain that may cause eye aches and headache as well as fatigue. Not using the glasses will not harm you. You just may have some symptoms described above and struggle to focus. This will not cause damage to your eyes.
