Re: Why does my eyesight continue to get worse?
Without your glasses, do you have a distance at which you can still see well? For instance, can you see far away clearly ("farsighted")?
You said you initially needed the glasses for reading. Does that mean you cannot now see anything up close?
If you can't see near or far, you might have astigmatism.
You're under 20, so it's not very likely you have cataracts.
How old are you now? If you're in your early teens, your eyes could continue to change a lot for a few years. If you're in your late teens, the change should slow down.
I went through much the same experience and feelings when I was a teen.
It was scary.
But there are many options today to correct vision.
And a lot of vision takes place in the brain, not the eyes.
When you go through changes, it takes a while for the brain to learn to interpret the data sent from the eyes.
