if you use your glasses all the time you will be avoiding stress and fatigue and other such symptoms like headache.
you may develop eye muscle imbalance if you do not use glasses or use them occasionally only

Welcome to healthcaremagic forum. You must wear specs. for both distance vision and near vision otherwise it will create a lot of strain. Your prescription suggests you have cylindrical glasses. Avoiding glasses will stimulate headache and other other complications. So you must wear your glasses all the time.

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
The prescription you have got suggests that you have both near sightedness as well as astigmatism. You need to use your specs full time to avoid any further deterioration in your vision.Whatever minor the number is it is advisable to use specs in near sightedness.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available if you have any further queries.
