Introduction

While we all won’t have glasses someday, a large majority of the population will. The problem is, most people don’t know when it is time to go see the eye doctor. For that reason, Matthew Davies is here to help us know when it is time. We may not like it, but it is just a fact of life. As we get older, things don’t work as well as they should. So, let’s not muck about and learn when it is time to see the eye doctor.

 

Blurred Vision

When we say blurred vision, we are not talking about after a night on the town and overindulging a little bit. We are talking about an extended period of blurred vision. Some of the ways that you can tell if your vision is becoming blurred is if you don’t recognize friends more than ten steps away anymore or when you cannot read your favorite book or magazine up close anymore. This may mean that you have or are developing farsightedness or nearsightedness. There is nothing wrong with that. It happens to the best of us. It just means that it may be time to see your eye doctor.

 

Night Vision

There are several indicators in this category. If you are having a hard time seeing at night, then you might have a problem. Obviously, we are not talking when it is completely dark. Additionally, we are not talking about things that are far away. Our eyes are not equipped to see in low light. However, if you can’t see something right in front of you and there is a little bit of light in the area, you might have a problem.

 

The second part of night vision is if you are having issues going from high levels of light to lower levels. While it is normal to have issues for the first minute or so, our eyes adjust quickly. If you are taking more than 5 minutes to adjust to the different light level, then you might have a problem. That is no reason to be ashamed. Simply book an appointment with your eye doctor. They will be more than happy to help you.

 

Computers

Love them or hate them, computers are here to stay for the foreseeable future. The problem is, they are starting to contribute to nearsightedness. The reason for this is, we never focus on anything more than two feet away from our face anymore. Maybe if you have a big television across the room, but that is not much better. You can try to avoid this by spending 20 seconds staring more than 20 feet away from you every 20 minutes. This is known as the 20-20-20 rule.

 

Conclusion

Matthew Davies knows that no one wants to get glasses. They have been made fun of for years and years. If you think you have a problem, it is best that you stow your vanity and do what is right for your eyes. Ignoring the problem will only make things worse.
