Do I Need Glasses?

Many people suffer with vision problems, yet continue to go about their lives unaware that they could benefit from vision correction. You may not recognise the common signs or continue to put off an eye exam until the problem gets worse. The truth is, as soon as you notice your eye sight changing, it’s time to have an eye exam.

10 signs you might need glasses

  3. Difficulty seeing objects both close up and at a distance (astigmatism)
  4. Difficulty seeing at night
  5. Increased difficulty adjusting from dark to light surroundings

  7. Eyestrain or eye fatigue
  8. Frequent headaches
  9. Double vision
  10. Seeing halos around light
