Written answer: Not wearing glasses whilst on the computer

I am an ICT student which means I have to use a computer quite a lot. I have glasses but I don’t need to wear them all the time, they are mainly for when I have to look further away (if you know what I mean). However I do not wear my glasses when I’m on the computer because I can see the screen perfectly fine but I also don’t wear them because I don’t like wearing my glasses in front of people…if I don’t wear my glasses when I am working on the computer will this effect my sight and make it worse in anyway or will it be okay?

I did not understand, she tried explaining telling to me that is why I have blurred vision and mentioned it would be hard for me to get contact lens as if I went for them I would get less clear vision with them than if I just went with glasses I would get full vision.
