For many people, it’s easy to recognize when their vision is not up to par. Whether it’s not being able to see the details of the world clearly or having trouble reading, getting corrective eyewear such as glasses or contact lenses can completely change your quality of life for the better. However, some people go about their daily lives without ever recognizing that they might need to get an eye exam. There are actually several classic signs that someone might be ready to explore corrective eyewear. We’ve put together a quick list of them below to help you assess whether or not it’s time to invest in corrective lenses. Keep reading below to learn more and remember to reach out to AV Eyecare if you are interested in getting an eye exam.
Sign #1 – Blurry Vision
One of the classic signs that you probably need corrective lenses is when you are experiencing blurry vision on a consistent basis. Blurry vision is usually caused by farsightedness or nearsightedness, which can be corrected with glasses and contact lenses. You also might be dealing with blurry vision if your eyes are fatigued from spending too much time in front of the computer or if you are tired. Make sure you schedule an appointment with your eye doctor if you are dealing with blurry vision to confirm what might be causing the issue.
Sign #2 – Poor Night Vision
Oftentimes, people that have trouble seeing things clearly at night can benefit from corrective eyewear. When your eyes aren’t able to adjust to the darkness, there’s a chance it could be related to cataracts or that you are dealing with zinc or vitamin A deficiency. There’s also a chance that you need corrective lenses to see better at night. It’s best to reach out to an eye doctor to discuss whether or not corrective lenses can help you see better at night.
Sign #3 – Headaches
If you are experiencing headaches on a regular basis, there’s a chance it’s related to farsightedness or astigmatism. When your eyes are experiencing fatigue and you are constantly straining to see things, it will likely lead to headaches. That’s why it’s important to get your eyes checked at AV Eyecare to confirm whether or not corrective eyewear can improve your quality of life.
Sign #4 – Squinting to See Clearly
It’s easy to get into the habit of squinting in order to see clearly. That’s because when you squint, it reduces the amount of light that enters your eye which allows you to see with more focus. If you are constantly squinting to see things clearly, the chances are good that corrective eyewear can help you solve the issue. Keep that in mind if you find yourself squinting to see better.
These are some of the classic signs that you need corrective eyewear. If you are interested in learning more about how corrective lenses can benefit your life or if you would like to schedule an eye exam, reach out to AV Eyecare today.
