With the end of summer, we’re starting to get back into the swing of things, and our schedules can get pretty busy. Make sure to keep up your eye health during this busy time! It may be time to get a new eye exam, or it may be time to see about getting new glasses. Read on to see if an eye exam and a new prescription may be in the works for you.
Do You Need A New Eye Exam?
If you haven’t gotten an eye exam in the past year, it’s time to schedule an appointment! Even if you can see well with your current glasses, it’s always a good idea to make sure that your current pair has the proper prescription. Yearly eye exams are a great way to ensure that your eye health is in top shape.
Headaches can be caused by changes in your vision. If you have suffered from headaches recently, these may be due to a change in your prescription. Check in with your optometrist in order to see whether or not your vision has changed since your last eye exam.
Increasing the amount of time working on the computer or watching TV can also cause your vision to change, as you may squint more often so that you can focus on the words on the screen. This action can not only generate headaches but can also dry out your eyes, so ensuring that your prescription is the right one can make a huge difference in the way you see when you work.
If it appears as if your vision has become blurry, or if you have eye strain, these are both signs that your sight has changed. Scheduling an appointment with an optometrist should be one of the first things you do after you notice one of these symptoms.
