While you may have had the same pair of glasses for years, the truth is that your prescription may have changed. When this happens, it can be so gradual that you don’t even realize how you are being affected.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or notice the following habits, it may be worth a visit to get an eye exam! Keep reading to learn some of the warning signs that it’s time for a new pair of glasses.
This one should be obvious. If you notice that it is getting difficult to see with your glasses on, it’s time for a new pair.
Eyes only get worse as you get older, so it is important to have frequent eye exams at Stahl Eyecare Experts. You should plan for an annual or biannual appointment, and more as you get older.
Headaches can come from many sources, but it is also a common sign that you are having a difficult time seeing. This leads to eye strain which in turn can cause significant stress headaches.
It’s not normal to be more comfortable without your glasses. If your glasses are causing you pain or headaches, get an eye exam. You’ll likely need a new prescription.
Squinting is not good for your eyes. If you notice you are squinting to see, this is a sign that you are having difficulty focusing.
When vision is not focused, it becomes harder to see things all around you. Squinting puts a lot of stress on the eyes which tires them out and could cause you more visual trouble.
Sometimes it’s not your eyes that get worse, but your lenses. Unfortunately, lenses and glasses do not last forever. If your lenses are very scratched, seeing can become impossible.
It’s important to have your vision checked even if your lenses are scratched. You may find out that your prescription has changed after all.
If you are experiencing double vision, it could mean that your eyesight is not balanced. This could cause you to start seeing double whenever you look at things.
Seeing double is annoying, but it can also cause eye strain, so it needs to be addressed. Your prescription may need to change between one or both of your eyes.
