Eyeglasses need to be replaced periodically, whether due to a change in your prescription or because your frames broke, or you just want to change things up. Read on as we discuss some key signs that it’s time to get a new pair of eyeglasses.
Blurred vision can happen suddenly or gradually, and it can affect just one eye or both of your eyes. If you notice a blurred vision or loss of focus, make sure to pay your optometrist a visit; it could be a sign that your eyeglasses prescription needs to be upgraded.
Headaches and Eye Pain
Your eyes might feel achy, tired, dry or watery when they become strained. This can happen when your prescription is wrong and your eyes have to work harder to compensate. Eye strain can also lead to a dull ache around your eyes, particularly after staring at your computer or reading a book.
Loss of Clarity
Try to remember how clear your vision was when you first had the glasses you’re currently using. This way, you’ll notice when your vision is no longer as clear. If you find yourself unable to see distant objects like billboards or close ones such as text in books, you might want to consult with your optometrist.
Old Glasses Have Become Difficult to Clean
If your glasses are treated with special coatings, these may leave a film that could make it difficult to clean your eyeglasses. In some cases, they may even cause glasses to be blurry.
