3 Signs You Need Eye Glasses
Have you ever wondered to yourself, “Do I need glasses?” If so, then you probably want to know what signs to watch for that indicate you have impaired vision. Here are 3 signs that you might need eye glasses.
1. Nearsighted or Farsighted. If you find your vision is blurry looking at things in the distance or that you are squinting all the time, this could mean your vision is either nearsighted or farsighted. Nearsighted means you have trouble seeing things far away and farsighted means you have trouble seeing objects up close. If you have either of these two eyesight problems, you will probably need prescription lenses.
2. Eye Fatigue. If you notice your eyes are tired, strained, or frequently painful throughout the day, it is probably time to call an eye doctor. An eye doctor can give you the right eye glass prescription to help with your symptoms.
3. Headaches. If you get headaches while reading, looking at your computer, or writing, this could be a sign you need eye glasses. These headaches occur because you are trying to focus really hard on what you are doing, and your eyes get strained in the process. Eye glasses can help bring everything into better focus for you so your eyestrain headaches will go away.
Make sure you are always paying attention to your vision and how it’s working. If you notice it’s getting worse, don’t wait to schedule an appointment with an eye doctor.
