Waiting too long to find out if you’re having vision troubles can have harmful consequences. Not just for you, but for those around you as well.

For that reason, The optometrists at Linsey EyeCare work hard to provide the highest quality eye exams in Wyomissing, PA.Eye Glasses

Here are a few ways to tell if you’re in need of an optometry examination:

1. Trouble focusing or blurry vision:

If you begin having trouble focusing your vision on individual objects, or your field of vision is blurry in general, it’s a sure sign you have an issue with one or both of your eyes.

2. You hold reading material either far from or close to your face:

Many vision problems manifest as either near-sightedness or far-sightedness. If you are reading a book, you find yourself holding it unusually close or far from your face, it’s time to schedule an eye exam from your Wyomissing optometrist.

3. You have trouble reading street signs:

Any vision troubles can be a serious danger while driving, but an early indicator to watch for is having trouble reading street signs from a distance.

4. Diabetes or other vision affecting conditions:

Some other serious health conditions, such as diabetes and glaucoma, have been known to affect vision in the long-term.

5. Appearance of floaters and obstructions:

It’s common to see occasional floaters or other small vision obstructors, but if they suddenly become more frequent, it could be a sign of a larger problem.

6. Experience eye strain:

Sight problems can cause people to keep their eyes under constant strain, whether it be to focus their vision or due to light sensitivity.

7. Headaches and Dizziness:

The combination of eye strain and disorientation can often lead to chronic headaches and bouts of dizziness.

8. When was your last eye exam?:

Ultimately, the best way to know if you’re in need of an eye appointment is to keep track of past visits and schedule regular appointments in the future.
