Dear Sir,
I have consulted one opthalmologist for glare and halos one week back. He examined my eyes and also conducted refraction. The report is as follows :

Right Eye
Sph. = -0.50
Cyl. = -0.75
Axis = 90°
Vn = 6/6

Left Eye
Sph. = -0.50
Cyl. = -0.75
Axis = 90°
Vn = 6/6

Then he suggested me to wear glasses to reduce the glare and halos. Then I started wearing glasses for last 1 week. But I have not seen anything changed or improved better. I would like to know from you sir, is glasses help to reduce glare ? What my eye report says about my eye's health. You please suggest me what should I do ? I await for your valuable reply sir...........

Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
The glare and halo likely has a underlying cause.

The eyeglass prescription is for very mild nearsightedness and astigmatism. If the glare and halo issues persist even when wearing the glasses, there is possibly an underlying issue with your cornea or natural crystalline lens. No choice but to make additional visits to more and more qualified ophthalmologists until a diagnosis is made. On subsequent eye doctor visits you need to be sure that your corneal topography, corneal epithelium, whole eye aberrometry, and crystalline lens clarity are all carefully checked.
