ANSWER: DEAR PHILIP

Thank you for your query
Will changing prescription glasses worsen my nearsightedness?
NO whatever latest prescription is there you will need to wear it and ideally you should check up every 3-6 month

Will taking my glasses off and putting them back on to view objects worsen my myopia?
BUT why you need to remove your glasses how will you see without glasses and more so if you try to see without corrective glasses it will cause lot of eye strain

Will wearing prescription glasses that doesn't fit another person worsen his eyesight?
if your shirt size is 42 you will not be able to wear 36 size right so everyone needs to wear their own prescription and also both eyes may have different number so each eye even is same person may be different forget different individuals


please revert back to me if you have any additional query

Thank you for your FOLLOW UP query
Ofcourse it causes strain on the eyes so you need to either wear glasses and if certain sports require you to remove glasses you can always wear contact lenses to compensate for your vision or you have option of getting LASIK laser done to remove glasses permanently
