Have you had your eyes checked recently?
It can be difficult to gauge when you need a fresh eye check-up. Our eyes change as we get older and our prescription glasses need adjustment. We might not notice these differences until they bring us severe discomfort, making it difficult to complete everyday tasks or do things we enjoy. If left unattended, an outdated prescription can cause great damage.
Campus Eye Group wants to help you see life clearly. As our patient, you will be treated with compassion, and we will help you get the glasses that you need in order to start living again.
Here are five signs that you need an eye exam.
Everyone gets an occasional headache when stressed or overworked. Headaches can also be a sign that you need an eye checkup. If your headache is constant and nothing brings you relief, you don’t have to live in discomfort.
Pay attention when you’re using the computer or reading a book. If these things seem to trigger your headache, you might need an eye exam.
2- Blurry Vision
This is a symptom that comes gradually. You might not notice it until you try to read something and find it clouded by fog.
Blurry vision triggers headaches if you ignore it and continue to read, drive, or work. A new prescription for your glasses will help you enjoy your favorite novel again, and you won’t have to worry about street signs when you’re driving.
3- Light Sensitivity
Does the light of your desk lamp appear to trigger your headache? When your eyes become sensitive to the light, you need to see a specialist. No one should have to live in darkness because their eyes are in need of care.
4- Floaters or Bright Flashes
Floaters are annoying, clear spots that creep into your vision. In general, they are nothing to cause great concern. We all have floaters, and develop more as we age.
If you notice a cluster of floaters appearing all of a sudden, or if you experience flashes of light from the corners of your eyes, you should have your retinas checked. They might be symptoms of an eye condition that could lead to blindness.
5- Difficulty Driving at Night
With weakened eyes, it’s difficult to drive during the day; at night, the obstacles become worse, because street signs are veiled in darkness. If you struggle with blurry vision or light sensitivity, you should not try to drive at night. It puts your life in danger, and you risk becoming lost.
