Do you ever find yourself having difficulty reading a street sign; or perhaps you have trouble making out the words in the book you are reading. If you are struggling with your vision, you are making life unnecessarily difficult on yourself. If you are looking to put an end to the constant eyestrain & headaches that are associated with vision problems, you have come to the right place.
The first and most important step you can take to put your vision problems to rest is to schedule an eye exam. However, in the meantime, it can also be helpful to gain an understanding of which eye conditions may be impeding your vision:
- Do you have trouble seeing objects that are afar? This can be a sign of myopia, or more commonly referred to as nearsightedness.
- Do you find it a challenge to focus on close objects for a sustained period of time? This can be a sign of hyperopia (farsightedness).
- Do you continually squint at objects to make them clear? This can be a sign of astigmatism.
If you believe you are suffering from any of the aforementioned conditions, it is imperative you schedule an eye exam and see your optometrist as soon as possible. Once you have completed an eye exam, your optometrist will be able to determine the best possible treatment option (eyeglasses, contact lenses, eye exercises, etc.) for your particular condition.
While the prescribed treatment option should be able to improve your eyesight, there is a possibility that you are suffering from an eye disease that will not be immediately resolved. At the onset, many eye diseases will be subtle to begin and worsen as the condition develops. For this reason, it is essential that you stay up-to-date with eye exams.
