Gerry Lynch asked the Naked Scientists:

   

Listening to the piece on visual acuity training made me wonder about wearing glasses.



At my last eye examination the optician said that I did not need to use glasses for driving but glasses could improve my vision. When I started to use them I noticed my eyesight improved for driving but if I forgot to put them on I also noticed my vision without glasses had significantly deteriorated. Is this the other side of visual acuity training? i.e. do your eyes become lazy when you wear glasses?

What do you think?
