Your visual health is an important component of your overall well-being. It also plays a large role in your daily efficiency. This is why taking care of your eyes should always be a priority. When you notice any of these signs, visit your trusted eye doctor for a complete eye exam right away.
You Have Blurry Vision and Difficulties Focusing on a Distant Object
Blurry vision and impaired focusing abilities may indicate a potentially bigger eyesight problem. If you’re having these symptoms, have your eyes checked by your optometrist immediately. We’ll perform a comprehensive ocular assessment to look for any eye irregularities. The sooner we establish the cause of the problem, the higher the chances of maintaining your visual health.
You’re Having Troubles Seeing at Night
Your retina contains specific photoreceptors, known as “rods,” that help you see in low-lit areas. If you notice having problems seeing at night, this may be a sign of an underlying retinal condition. Your low-vision specialist explains that this may also be part of the normal aging process. The best way to know how to manage it is to undergo a comprehensive eye exam.
You Keep Seeing “Floaters” in Your Field of Vision
Seeing floaters or flashes of light is a characteristic of a torn or detached retina. While they often develop as you age, these problems may lead to significant visual limitations or even vision loss when left unmanaged. Head to your trusted eye clinic for a comprehensive eye exam as soon as possible.
Your Headaches Are Getting Frequent
Frequent headaches, particularly when you’re doing visually demanding tasks, are sure signs telling you to go see an eye doctor as soon as possible. Reduced visual acuity may prevent you from seeing things clearly. As a result, your eyes are forced to work harder whenever you’re doing close work. We will conduct some tests to determine if you need eyeglasses or contact lenses or if you need to upgrade your current lens’ power.
