The only person who can answer this is you because nobody else knows how clearly you can see. You might think that you are seeing clearly but chances are that you have got so used to wearing these glasses and seeing things the way you do, that you haven’t even noticed the changes in your vision.
Here are some questions you should be asking yourself to know whether or not you need a new pair of prescription glasses
1. Do I get frequent headaches?
If you have recurring headaches, chances are your prescription has changed. Headaches are a sure sign of vision problems in most cases. Your brain sends you signals to remind you that there is something wrong with your vision. If you are nearsighted you may experience frequent headaches in the front of your head and around your eyebrows. Or, if you are farsighted you may experience a headache after looking at things closely for an extended period. So if the answer to the question, Do I get frequent headaches is yes, get yourself an appointment with an optometrist without further delay.
2. Do I have blurry vision?
Do you need to blink and re-focus on something you are watching or reading? Blurry vision or re-focus issues could be occasional or sudden. They could happen in one eye or both but it’s a signal to watch out for. If you experience blurry vision you should get it checked for a new prescription and also rule out bigger issues like cataract.
3. Do I find myself squinting to see better?
You squint to see clearly and chances are you don’t even know that you do. Squinting is your eye’s mechanism to make your vision clear but if you constantly do it then you need an eye checkup. Not only are you straining your eyes but you are giving yourself premature wrinkles! How do you know if you are squinting without some else telling you that you are? Well, when you squint, you strain your eyes, so if you feel fatigued after watching or reading, chances are that you were squinting and you need a revised prescription.
4. When did I get these glasses?
If the answer to this question is last year then you should get a new pair of glasses. It is suggested by most ophthalmologists that you should get your eyes checked every year, even if you can see clearly but your prescription might need some minor alterations. So, mark your calendar for an annual eye checkup or better still try the Lenskart Home Try On Service.
5. Do I keep cleaning my glasses over and over?
Long-term use of glasses may end up with smudged lenses that you keep trying to clean over and over again. If you have been using hot water to cleanse your lenses, chances are that may have damaged the lens coating and need to repair or renew your glasses. Getting an anti-reflective or photochromic coating enriches your vision.
6. Do I see double?
