  • Wearing glasses in childhood causes bulging eyes in children!? Is that true? What is the relationship between glasses and eye protrusion?
  • EFIL Staff | 2019-12-23 14:52 Hit : 316


There are rumors that wearing glasses early in childhood can cause eye bulginess later on. 

There does seem to a disproportionate number of "bulgy" eyes in those that regularly wore 

glasses in childhood versus those that did not. The problem here deserves a closer look.


What is eye bulginess? Eyes can naturally bulge due to a lack of space in the eye socket. 

This can be congenital, or it can develop. There are a number of different conditions 

(e.g. thyroid dysfunction) , habits (e.g. sporadic breath holding), factors 

(e.g. hereditary shallow eye sockets) that can directly or indirectly cause eyes to bulge. 

When this happens, the eyes end up being pushed from their intended position to a new, 

more uncomfortable one.




Imagine slightly protruding eye balls in a growing child. Due to growingly awkward eye 

positioning, eye sight will undoubtedly be affected. In most cases, glasses are the go-to 

solution to solve this problem. This is where we can start to see a pattern. First there is 

eye protrusion, then changes in eye sight come afterwards.


There is little medical evidence to support claims that glasses cause proptosis 

eye bulginess). However, for reasons explained above, the onset of early 

proptosis has been proven to negatively affect eye sight. Therefore, the correct 

way to understand the situation would be that eye protrusion in young eyes 

worsens eye sight which in turn causes the individual to wear glasses. 

Glasses do not cause proptosis.



There are many out there with questions about their eyes and problems 

concerning them, especially individuals dealing with bulging eyes. We here 

are EFIL Plastic Surgery are experts in eye protrusion and corrective
