Is there any "natural" way to become nearsighted? (Like reading with little light, etc.) I've heard of numerous ways but Im not sure which ways work, if any. Thanks!

So you were first prescribed glasses / contacts about 2 years ago when you were 17 years old. At that time you only needed correction for astigmatisms. Now 4 months ago one eye required a -.50 correction for SPH (distance) Was there any change in your astigmatism correction at this time from 2 years before? Generally speaking astigmatisms don't usually change much if any over time. But in the last 4 months you are noticing some problems with seeing distances even with your glasses or contacts on and you're concerned. It would seem that it is the myopia that needs to be increased. It's likely that you were just under prescribed at the time you had your eyes examined. Since it is not much past 90 days which many doctors and optical stores will usually offer to re examine your eyes and even change the lenses in your glasses and replace your contacts with new ones you should not waste anymore time and call where you had your eyes examined at and got your glasses and contacts from. Just tell them that you have been noticing this problem nearly from the time you got your new glasses and contacts. Thye should at the very least do a re exam at a very reduced rate or at no charge to you.
Because your already 19 and only have a weak prescription now I wouldn't expect that your eyes are likely to change all that much over the next few years. And actually your already very close to the time when your eyes could be starting to become stable. I really don't think your eyesight will ever become very bad. I base this on the fact that you apparently didn't have much change in the 2 years between eye exams.

Last year I spent a day in Karlovy Vary when I saw a Chinese girl with strong minus glasses, about -8. Once she gave her phone to his girlfriend to take a photo and also took off her glasses for the photo. She wasn't squinting, maybe just a bit, but I saw in her eyes that she can't see anything. Her look was like 'seeing to nowhere'.

I have had glasses for 2 years, and also contacts. Prior to four months ago, I had correction for astigmatism only. I now have a small (-.5) myopia correction in one eye. However, I am lately noticing difficulty seeing in the distance again, even with correction. I'm a little concerned that I'm having trouble seeing already. It makes me worry about how much my myopia could progress in the long run. I'm a 19 year old female so I think I'm likely to experience more vision changes? Any thoughts?

Sounds similar to this movie about an optician in the wild west who becomes a reluctant hero and prescribes Wyatt Earp eyeglasses http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0104293/

Two wonderful sightings in the past weeks.
One at the airport: young lady around 30, long brown air, brown eyes, good body, squinting here and there while walking to the gate. Wanted to see something in a shop window and got there squinting then getting really close. I followed her as much as I could and a certain time while looking around searching for the rest room (which she finally located) we crosses our eyes and she gave a deep and prologuend quint at me. She was clearly unable to see my face even I was really close to her. Must have been not less tha, say, -4. Unfortunately I was with a colleague of mine so I could not have the opportunity to chat with her and ask her prescription.
Second sighting in a holiday village on the seaside. Very cute tall brunette around 18th always wearing a pair of very strong glasses (more than -10 for sure). No evidence of contacts or even prescription sunglasses during the holidays. She only removed glasses when sunbathing or swimming. Astonishingly she was able to do even alone and bareeyed. I'm wonderng how she could see her steps.... very very attrative.

@Broken Glasses Have you tried squinting? I hear that works.

"Seriously,if you have a moderate to high prescription,and have an old pair of glasses, that is what you should be wearing" Boy you "seriously" need a writing class. your sentence structure makes you barely comprehensible.

A white cane,or seeing eye dog may help.
Seriously,if you have a moderate to high prescription,and have an old pair of glasses, that is what you should be wearing.
Broken Glasses 31 May 2016, 20:56
Any tips for getting around without glasses when they break? Mine just broke and it'll be about a week before I can get new ones. It's pretty frustrating so far! I can only see my computer screen because I zoomed it way in.

I drop into some chain optical stores from time to time.Places like Sears optical, Lenscrafters,Walmart,and pretend to be looking at frames.
I always hang around the eye doctors area,and have scored some hard squinting,when the optical assistant takes the patients glasses,to measure the Rx.
Tom1 29 May 2016, 13:08
I also share the same attraction: squinting women are much better than bespectacled ones. Have a llook to the dahl46 channel on youtube, you'll like it.
28 May 2016, 15:05
No not alone. I join you with that type of excitement, especially myopic guys.
28 May 2016, 14:45
where are the best spots to find people squinting hard who need glasses? I love to see the struggle when someone cannot see well. this forum seems to loves glasses wearing people but i love people who need glasses but don't have them.
i also enjoy movies or tv shows where someone loses their glasses and has to struggle with blurry vision. plus xxx videos like this.
am i alone.

Four Star Playhouse from 1955. A very nearsighted cowboy comes to town because he's been living in a blur. Tries to get glasses, but things don't turn out so well for him. Lots of scenes through his very blurry eyesight.

Terry and other guys with very cool glasses
Marco 21 Nov 2015, 18:19
Terry is nearsighted and got his first pair of glasses.
He is so very happy he can see again and feels a bit like Superman.

Squint from around 1:12
Carrie 10 Oct 2015, 18:01
Bloody auto-correct or predictive text, whatever it is! Yes it should say "Grande". I didn't re-read what I had written before submitting.
She's quite pretty but I find her and her music a bit annoying. Her need for glasses is the only thing I find interesting about her. I am not being nasty or bitchy about her personally, just about the rather commercial product she comes across as to me.
Actually, when I say a bit annoying I mean very annoying.

I thought she was Ariana Alabama or Ariana Northern Mariana. Maybe she moved to France. It's easier to spell.
guest 10 Oct 2015, 12:56
Who is Ariana France? The singer's name is Ariana Grande-Butera.

Time has passed since her Olympic days and Dorothy Hamill is well into "that age" where the need for near vision assistance has arisen. Wonder if there are any pictures of her in her current spex?
Carrie 10 Oct 2015, 03:56
Ariana France's glasses don't look particularly strong but everyone is different with how much they can see. Two people with the same prescription could see differently without their glasses.
Here's a pic of Ariana in glasses showing a bit of minification of an object behind her http://data.whicdn.com/images/160506744/large.jpg
Likelenses 09 Oct 2015, 21:37
This article says that Hamill's nick name was Squint,and that her coach got her large frame glasses for better side vision.These large glasses started the large frame trend in the seventies.
Likelenses 09 Oct 2015, 21:14
Dorothy Hamill in glasses.
Tom1 09 Oct 2015, 15:05
This is new to me
Around 7:45 she quints trying to read bareeyed at the longest possible distance from her face.
ice nice 09 Oct 2015, 15:05
I have probably watched the Ariana Grande video 50 times now. It gives me so much incredible pleasure. In the 50, women tried to hide very bad eyesight. in the 2105, Airana squints hard directly at the camera several times. Time is does change.
Tom1 09 Oct 2015, 14:08
Here it is. Very old and linked already years ago
Squinting from 4:25 up to the very end of the video.
Dahl 09 Oct 2015, 14:02
Tom1, I didn't see her prescription anywhere, but there are some pictures of her with glasses on the web and I think is not very high.
If you see any other girl squinting like this, post the link!
This thread is a little dead and I think it's my favorite
Tom1 08 Oct 2015, 14:31
Dahl: absolutely hot!
Does she state her prescription somewhere? I don't understand while some showgirls don't use contacts and prefer to squint. However... I love them!
Dahl 08 Oct 2015, 11:10
And she joked about it on instagram:
Dahl 08 Oct 2015, 11:08
Ariana Grande squinting hard. She looks really sexy!
Tom1 07 Apr 2015, 13:23
Guesst: oh my God, she is really blind! She squints even to read at a small distance, she must be severely nearsighted. No mention of her eyesight on the videos? Maybe we should ask her to tell about her eyesight and prescription...
guesst 02 Apr 2015, 11:34
Interesting video of a young twenty something reviewing Forever 21 lipstick. On her website, she says "Please donít laugh at my squinting. LOL. I need glasses bad" but the comment isn't on her Youtube page.
After watching the video, YES she does need glasses BAD.
