Signs That You Need To Get Your Eyes Tested. Read On
Bhubaneswar: Do you wear spectacles for proper vision? Or are you one of those who haven’t faced any eyesight problem ever in life? Nevertheless, our vision does change over time and it’s important to maintain your eyesight. We need good vision for daily activities like reading or looking at a computer.
You may find there’s nothing wrong with your vision or you could discover a problem that can be treated or corrected with glasses. It doesn’t hurt to visit your eye care professional and find out why you’re experiencing these vision changes.
Here are some signs which indicate that you need to get an eye test as soon as possible.
If you fail to recognize a friend 10 steps away, or if books have become too fuzzy to read up close, you may be developing farsightedness or nearsightedness. If you find it difficult to see objects both near and far, that may be astigmatism, a common condition involving a curvature of the eye lens or cornea. If you face any of these issues, schedule an eye examination.
Difficulty seeing at night:
If you feel your night vision is fading, you may be experiencing signs of early cataracts, which should be examined as soon as possible.
Troubles adjusting from dark to light:
If it takes your eyes longer to adjust after seeing bright lights after coming out of a dark room, it likely means the muscles that help your iris contract and expand are weakening. This urgently needs an eye examination.
Sometimes the mechanism that helps the cornea and lens focus on images fails, and the small muscles in the eye are forced to work harder. The result is eye strain, which can lead to headaches. Put in simple terms: When you squint, it can cause headaches, and you may need glasses.
Difficulty at the computer:
Those who struggle to read things on the computer after a while may be experiencing a clue to farsightedness. If you want to keep Computer Vision Syndrome at bay, follow the 20-20-20 rule: look 20 feet away for 20 seconds every 20 minutes. If problems persist, schedule an eye exam.
Seeing double may indicate problems with your cornea or eye muscles. It can also be a symptom of cataracts. If you are suffering from double vision then getting an eye test is a must.
Do 20 minutes of reading wear your eyes? Eye fatigue results from blurry vision or when you regularly squint or blink to bring items into focus, but it also can occur from driving, writing or mobile phone addiction. To avary taking regular breaks or change the lighting to reduce glare—and Pearle Vision also recommends drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day to help avoid eye fatigue and strain. But if the fatigue persists, see your eye doctor.
