Find out if glasses could improve your vision.
Sometimes it sneaks up on us—vision issues. Things that were once easy to read or see may now be a bit blurry. Could you need glasses? Find out the three classic signs that it might be time to see your Wyomissing, PA optometrist for a vision exam.
Eyestrain or eye fatigue
While eyestrain or eye fatigue is certainly a common condition, it doesn’t make it any less annoying. Tired, itching and burning eyes can be a downright nuisance, particularly if you are still trying to get through your workday. While this is rarely a serious problem, eye fatigue is often one of the first symptoms that there are changes to your vision. If you find that you are experiencing eye fatigue more often then it’s time to schedule an appointment with your Wyomissing optometrist.
Blurry vision up close or afar
Have things that are close to you or far away become blurry? This is a telltale sign that you may need glasses or a new prescription. Monitor your vision routinely so you are better able to distinguish when changes have occurred. Not sure if your vision has changed? Then try this little exercise: Throughout the day look at something you can just make out, such as words on a book, and check your eyesight (one eye at a time) to see if you can still see it. If you are having problems seeing something that you once could, then it’s time to see us about glasses.
Problems seeing at night
Have you found that your drive home from work, particularly in the winter hours when it’s already dark, is difficult on your eyes? Not seeing as well while on the road? This is the first sign that you could be dealing with night blindness. This vision impairment only affects people at night or in dimly light areas. While the term night blindness may make it seem as if you can’t see anything at night, this is simply not true. If you are having problems seeing at night then it’s time to talk to your Wyomissing, PA optometrist about glasses.
