Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

worried teenager; vision problems.

I am 19 years old, and just got back from my yearly eye doctor apt.

Since about six or seven, I have needed glasses. Ever since, my eyes have slowly needed stronger prescriptions. After going to the doc, I found out my vision is 2800/20. (or 20/2800, not sure which way it goes.)

My concern is that I'm not sure if it will continue to be getting worse.

Any ideas on what I should expect later on?

Hey!
Just so you know I have a severely high myopia in addition to my other visual problems. Currently I wear glasses with help sometimes but right now I am having other problems so they dont help as much. My myopia gets worse every six months or so which is normal for my condition, sometimes it is the way it is. I am not expected to loose vision though due to prevention methods (surgery) I had when I was younger.

That was kind of strange the other two posts seemed to be advertisement for... money stuff.

Anyways, about your vision. Needing glasses by themselves does not necessarily mean you will end up losing your vision. If your vision is 20/2400, then that likely means you have high myopia (near-sightedness). Is that correct?

If you just have extremely high myopia, then you have a higher likelihood of developing glaucoma or detached retinas. Both can be very serious, and you should discuss that with your doctor, as there can be other factors involved.

If your vision loss stems from something other than myopia, you should also check with your doctors for treatments. there could be a number of things that cause loss of visual acuity, and may get worse as you grow older.

hope that helps. I'm not trying to scare you or anything, but your doctor will know much more about your own personal case and what can be done. And if you need to, you can always ask for a second opinion.
