Headaches? I See New Glasses In Your Future
If you are experiencing headaches and it’s been awhile since you’ve had your eyeglass prescription updated, it is probably time to update your lenses to match the changes in your vision. If you have had your current glasses for over a year or two, contact your nearest Wise Eyes Optical to schedule an eye exam today.
What Is the #1 Sign You Need Glasses?
Did you know that the #1 symptom of needing a new vision prescription is having more and more frequent headaches? It’s true. The earliest sign that it’s time to visit your eye doctor is when your brain is forced to kick into high gear to compensate for decreasing visual acuity. This wears the brain out fast. You can rest your eyes to get temporary relief, but until the problem is corrected, the pain will keep returning.
How Often Does Your Vision Change?
Your vision is constantly adjusting to the environment and your eyes react to these changes on a continual basis. For most, it is unlikely that your prescription will remain the same for more than a year. Although the difference may be so minor that you can’t consciously detect the change, the fatigue and strain placed on your eyes and brain will quickly become evident if left uncorrected.
Beyond Headaches: Signs You Need New Glasses
Aside from headaches, there may be a few other signs that indicate the need for a new pair of prescription eyeglasses. If you are catching yourself squinting to see better, experiencing blurry vision, or feeling ongoing eye fatigue, be sure to have your prescription updated or schedule an evaluation for other medical conditions that may be causing these symptoms.
Aside from requiring a new, updated prescription, several additional causes for frequent headaches exist. Be sure to keep your annual eye examination appointment to find out if it’s time for a fresh pair of lenses or if another condition may be causing your headaches or discomfort. Wise Eyes Optical cares about your eye health.
