Maintaining Optimal Eye Health: Signs You May Need New Glasses

Published on
April 29, 2023

Good eyesight is essential for our daily lives, whether it's for driving, reading, or simply enjoying the scenery around us. If you wear glasses, ensuring your prescription is up-to-date is crucial, as failing to do so can lead to headaches, eyestrain, and other vision-related problems. In this blog post, we'll discuss the signs indicating you may need new glasses to maintain optimal eye health and function.

Blurred Vision

Experiencing blurry vision is a sign that you may need new glasses. Blurred vision can occur when your prescription is outdated or incorrect, leading to headaches, eye fatigue, and difficulty seeing clearly. If you're experiencing blurred vision, it's essential to make an appointment with our eye doctor to have your prescription checked.

Eye Strain

Eye strain is a common indicator that you may need new glasses. If you spend a lot of time staring at computer screens, reading, or doing other close-up work, your eyes can become fatigued, resulting in discomfort, such as headaches or eye pain. If you're experiencing eye strain, take regular breaks and have your eyes checked to see if you need a new prescription.

Squinting

Squinting to see things clearly may signal that you need new glasses. While squinting can temporarily improve your vision, it can also cause eye strain and fatigue, harming your eyesight in the long term. If you find yourself squinting often, schedule an appointment with our eye doctor to have your prescription checked.

Headaches

Headaches are a common sign that you may need new glasses. If you're experiencing headaches concentrated around your forehead or temples, it could indicate that your glasses are no longer providing the correct prescription. If persistent headaches plague you, see our eye doctor to rule out any underlying eye conditions.

Double Vision

Double vision occurs when you see two images of the same object and can indicate that you need new glasses. Double vision can result from various factors, including an outdated prescription or other underlying eye conditions.

Light Sensitivity

Increased sensitivity to light may signal that you need new glasses. Light sensitivity can occur when your glasses are not providing the correct prescription, causing discomfort and headaches. If you're experiencing light sensitivity, see our eye doctor to have your prescription checked.

Difficulty Seeing at Night

Difficulty seeing at night can indicate that you need new glasses. If you find it challenging to see while driving at night or have trouble reading in low light conditions, your glasses may no longer provide the correct prescription.
