  • Recently some people are going for laser treatment for eyesight. My brother's daughter underwent that treatment. She stopped using spectacles. Her sight has become normal. So you can also try that treatment. But you should first consult an ophthalmologist and get his advice on this particular treatment. You can definitely do away with spectacles after this treatment.
    There is another way is to have contact lenses wherein the lens will be arranged in your eye and no separate opticals are required to wear.
    You can try any one of these two technics.

  • You can get rid of your spectacles with the new surgical procedure called as Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis abbreviated as LASIK (pronounced as LAY-sik). This surgery is done to correct the vision problems such as short-sightedness, far-sightedness (hyperopia) astigmatism (Blurred vision) and presbyopia (long-sightedness). This surgery has been in practice for 20 years and it is very successful. But like any other surgery, even LASIK will have limitations, risk factors, and complications. This is not a suitable surgery for if you have any of the following conditions:

    Age limit (must be 18 or over)
    Corneas which are too thin or irregularly shaped
    Dry eyes
    Existing degenerative disorders
    Existing unstable vision
    Heightened refractive error
    Laser eye surgery side effects and complications
    Physiological factors such as pregnancy

    Though the surgery is done by experts who have years of experience the following complications or errors can occur after the surgery:

    Dry eyes
    Under correction, overcorrection or regression
    Eye infection
    Flap complications
    Temporary impairment of vision.

    The complications may not occur at all and you have your vision restored to normal so that you can get rid of your spectacles. This is a very good option and many people are getting treated through this method. You can consult the nearest ophthalmologist and take the necessary guidance.

  • Please meet a qualified opthalmologist at a good center. Now there are many dedicated eye hospital that can advise you after a formal assessment. A power of + 3 would indicate long sight and -3 woiuld indicate short sight ( things in close range are easy to see, objects in the distance are not very clear).

    You have been having glasses for around 8 years, We need to know your age also because, any surgical intervention would give better results once the power is stable (it would be a waste if the surgery is done and your power keeps changing). The cornea in the eyeball is nothing but a lens that controls the amount of light and the focus with which it is passed on to the eye. If there is a problem, then we are given eye glasses, that are like another lens on the outside. Now with advances in laser, the doctors can precise control it in a fashion that they can alter the shape of the cornea so that it is modified to do the job of external eye glasses.

    Many people go in for corneal surgery. Basically the laser surgery makes the cornea behave like a contact lens.If you have used a contact lens and have had good results, then you would benefit from the laser eye surgery. Of course there are many criteria that decide whether one is a candidate for this surgery or not. Even if you ar young but have a high intra-ocular pressure, ongoing eye infections, then you may not be suitable for it.This is just an example, so is the age, if your age is ideally around 20 and above you would be a candidate.

    Please also remember that in some patients after surgery, when they are in the mid 40's, there may be a need for using reading glasses, additionally.

  • Visit an experienced and qualified eye specialist doctor. Tell him your problems or expectations.He will be able to give you a suitable solution.

    For any matter there can be more than one opinion. People may have their own experience. But that may not suit your situation. Hence take professional help. In case of surgery get real opinion from those who had it. Know from them what are the pros and cons. The same you can get from the professionals like specialist eye hospitals and eye specialist doctors. Then you take a considered decision.

    Having adjusted to spectacles and not having any special issues(except that you are bored of it) it will be still easy to carry on with spectacles. You may go for a new specs with latest type of frames and more convenient and comfortable lens.

  • Wearing spectacles is the best way to aid the weak eyes. However due to cosmetic reasons some people do not like them and go for LASIK surgery or contact lenses.

    Whether you are using a +3 (hypermetropia) or -3 (myopia) power you can go for the above options to get rid of spectacles. Please consult an opthalmologist who can advise you on these matters seeing your age and to examine if any aliments you have, which are connected to this issue.

    Please note that while wearing spectacles one can go on changing them if the power of eyes are changing with time but in case of surgery you can't go for it everytime when there are changes due to age and other reasons.

    So a judicious decision is to be taken in these important things after considering all the pros and cons.

    Knowledge is power.
