Hello. I am now 21 years old and with 14 I had no glasses. Today I was again at the ophthalmologist uuuund like every time my values have so deteriorated. Now I have already -5 diopters! The whole in 7 years, is this normal?
Yes, I work on computers a lot but that's why the same as a violent development? I can get myself every six months a new pair of glasses / contact lenses because I have again a half to a full diopter less ..
I have to be scared blind. How far is this going to go? How much Diotrien can get?
Can all be disease related? I suffer from Hashimoto (thyroid autoimmune disease), but I am well controlled on medication. I'm fine and bloodwork are also OK Can it have a different cause?

The extent to affect your illness and the tablets, you must your (professional) ask physician.
So, stay loose and became you, that there is such a thing as eyeglasses / contact lenses with which you may as well see how each Rechtsichtige.
