Hello doctor,

My eye power is only -0.5, but now it has increased to -1.5. I think it is due to the side effects of Perinorm tablets, which I was taking before six months. I am currently taking homeopathic medicines to remove my glass. Please suggest to me how to get rid of spectacles?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As you grow in height and built, similarly, your eye size changes, so as your glass number. Usually myopia (minus number) starts at 7-8 years of age and keep on changing till 20-22 years.

Your glasses number is small.

Keep using glasses and visit your doctor once in six months or once in a year for any change in glasses.

Once the number stops changing and get stable, then you can get rid of glasses with Laser surgery, that is very simple. But for that you number should be stable and should not be changing. So you might need to wait till that age.

No need to take any medication.

Change in number is just like your change in height and your shoe size. Do not worry. Do not take unnecessary medicines.
