Why is my reading vision getting worse with longsighted prescription?
I've worn glasses and contact lenses to correct my short sighteness for years, and have always had perfect reading sight. Recently I've noticed a very marked deterioration in the vision I've got when reading, or looking closely at things, when I have my glasses on. If I lift my glasses up I can see perfectly. I've never had this problem before and could always read perfectly with my "gogs" on. I am seriously looking into having laser eye surgery to correct my short sightedness but can't afford it yet :-( so I dont want to pay for a new eye test or glasses when my long distance vision is still A1 but my glasses are making my short distance vision crap. Anyone know why this is happening?

Contact Lens King
Maybe I am misunderstanding the question but it seems like you really do not have a problem anymore. Your vision seems to be good from what I read? You see fine for distance obects and you don;t need glasses anymore for near objects? I would go see your eye care provider and have your eyes tested.

life is good
Why don't you just take the glasses off to read? Problem solved.

You've reached that lovely age that requires Bifocal lenses. Rude, I know, but it happens to most of us nearsighted people. There isn't anything you can do to change this. Sorry but it sounds like new eye exam & lenses are the only thing that is going to help. Just so you know when you get your eye surgery you will probably still need at least reading glasses when you are done. I had my exam done & 3 months later had to do it again for the same reason BIFOCALITIS

Working in the eyecare field I have seen this before many times. Get an eye exam and the doctor will probably give you an Rx with a bifocal prescription. If your distance vision is not a problem you may want to try magnifying readers, thus keeping you from wearing glasses all of the time. As far as LASIK surgery goes, it will not help with your near vision-even with it you would still need reading glasses.

"Recently I've noticed a very marked deterioration in the vision I've got when reading, or looking closely at things, when I have my glasses on."

this sounds like emerging presbyopia. how old are you? somewhere between say 38 and 45? if so, this is perfectly normal.

"I am seriously looking into having laser eye surgery to correct my short sightedness"

well it may be a bad time. if your Rx is changing and/or you are starting presbyopia (inability to focus up close with glasses ON) then lasik wont help you all that much. all lasik does is take your glasses Rx OUT of your eye. so if you're having trouble reading up close right now with your glasses ON...then after lasik you will *ALSO* have trouble reading up close.

Sounds like you are starting to notice the beginnings of presbyopia.... it is an age related condition where the crystalline lens inside our eye that normally flexes to focus on near objects begins to stiffen. The lens will continue to stiffen until you are in late 50's or early 60's.. this is when all focusing ability is lost. This actually works out great for people with lower myopic (nearsighted) prescriptions... but only for reading.
It is usually noticeable in those approaching or in their 40's and it affects everyone regardless of their refractive error, gender, race etc... If you get laser eye surgery it will only correct your nearsightedness and you will need glasses for reading. There are currently a few different surgeries to correct presbyopia, but they are even more pricey then standard laser eye surgery.
You can get bifocal/multifocal lenses in your glasses so you do not need to take them off.... or for now you can just take your glasses off to read. Also you can get bifocal/multifocal contact lenses if you were interested.
I think you should see your eye doctor for a new eye exam and tell them your concerns. I'm sure they will be able to find a solution that works well for you :)
