Minus eye power increasing rapidly,
I have minus eye power. It is increasing still now. I am 28, but have eye power of sph -10 in right eye and -7 in left eye. I also have cylindrical power in both the eyes. Why is my power increasing constantly even though am 28 years old? What can I do to stop my power increase? Is LASIK /laser helpful for me? I wear contact lenses at work because I am unable to wear specs made of thick glasses. So I wear lenses for almost 10hours a day. Is contact lenses safe? Is this the reason for power increase? Is this okay? Also will my eye power stop increasing if I stop using computer? Please tell me some do's and don'ts to prevent power increase. Please help me. Also how frequently do I need to go for an eye check up? When I go for eye check up, will I stop wearing contact lenses from the day before?

You have not mentioned that how much increase did you notice within last 5to6 years. If it is less than 1 then need not to worry. You can continue with contact lenses. They are quite safe. As you are a regular computer user ,You are likely to have computer vision syndrome please use lubricant eye drops e.g. teardrop 2to3 times daily and rub ocupol d's eye oint twice daily on lids Lasik will not help you. You may go for ICL You need not to stop computer usage. But follow the following....
Next Steps
