If this is true myopia (-1.5D does not decrease when checking refraction with a dilated pupil, we are talking about true myopia), then you need to wear glasses, because no correction:

  1. Provokes the further development of myopia.

  2. Makes life difficult for a person. You can of course say that "I can see anyway," but it's like living with three fingers on your hand - "I can work anyway." At the same time, it is mandatory to wear glasses while driving.

If, with a wide pupil, the minus decreases when checking vision, then we can talk about "false myopia" (habitually excessive tension of accommodation). In this case, you should not immediately put on glasses, you need to undergo a course of medical and hardware treatment - perhaps the "minus" will go away.

Good afternoon, it all depends on the age and indications for treatment (for example, with divergent strabismus), for example, in childhood, glasses can be worn as a therapeutic and corrective function, in this case it must be worn. In adulthood, if the lack of glasses does not cause discomfort, then you can do without them. Be healthy!
