    I am very myopic and notice I see thing little sharper when i pull my
    glasses outward about slightly. Does that mean I need new prescription
    or eyes getting worse?

    if tilting your glasses sharpens things, you may be about half a
    diopter undercorrected now. If you are happy with your glasses, do
    nothing. If you want stronger, get another eye exam

    if you see better in your glasses when you pull them away from your
    eyes your prescription is likely too strong. it is common for a person
    to lose some of their nearsightedness at about your age. you should go
    to your eye doctor and tell them of your observations and then get a
    new prescription. you will be able to see better at intermediate
    distances as well as distance with the new prescription.

    good luck

    That does not make sense. Improved acuity under those circumstances
    indicates a weaker (more positive) prescription will do. The virtual image
    produced by the lens moves further away from the eye as the lens is moved
    out. If the lens is tilted, some astigmatism might be introduced.

    I thought he said he tilts his glasses so the bottom is closer to his
    eyes. If he pushes his glasses down his nose then he needs weaker
    glasses. If he is tilting them or pushing them tight up to his nose, he
    needs stronger

    Most likely you need reading glasses. It is comon for myopes to push
    their glasses away when reading.

    Time to see your optom.

    Do you mean you can read better when you pull your glasses out from
    your face a bit? That's a trick a doctor showed me when you reach the
    point that you don't quite need bifocals yet but it's getting a little
    harder to read small print with your regular glasses. Have your eyes
    checked but if you are like me (also quite myopic) the doctor said the
    amount of accommodation needed was so small it was not worth paying for
    bifocals at this point.

    No I have bifocals and they are a little better if push in to nose and
    the far vision is better when pull out a little.

    It suggests it is time to get new glasses.
