While changing prescription eyeglasses may not be as frequent as changing your bedsheets, getting your eyes checked every now and then is important for you to know if you ever need to. Some of us may dread having to wear glasses, more so change one each time, but the deed will do you more good than hassle. So, is it finally time for you to go out with the old and in with the new?
Hear what your eye doctor has to say.
A regular eye exam with your doctor is the first step to knowing whether or not you need to have your glasses changed. Ideally, your eye doctor will check not only the condition of your eyes, but also of any flaws in your old glasses. He knows best if it is time for you to get a new one.
There are subtle changes in your vision.
You may think you are still seeing clearly with your current specs, yet it does not mean that you still have the same prescription. Especially after so many years of using your old prescription lenses, your glasses may already be following an outdated prescription. This causes significant eyestrain if not addressed properly. If you are straining to properly see something near or from afar, or if you experience frequent headaches, it might be time for you to have your prescription changed.
Make use of the latest technology.
Eye care technology has improved over the years. Because of this, it is just right to move on from your old glasses and try new, improved ones. New lenses have been designed to reduce eye strain from too much exposure to a glaring screen.
