Just as the rest of your body ages and changes, your eyes also change, and when they do, it affects your prescription eye glasses. Even though many people over 40 might be more aware of possible changes that can occur with the onset of presbyopia and the increased likelihood of cataracts and macular degeneration, younger people also need to understand that your eyes can change at any age, and only regular eye exams can help you ensure you have the right prescription.
So if you have had your glasses for a long time, how can you tell if your prescription is still the right one? If you don’t have the right prescription, you may suffer from:
- Extreme blurry vision or inability to focus
- Poor vision in only one eye
- Headaches or dizziness
- Vertigo or nausea not connected with another medical condition
If these problems persist even when your glasses are perfectly centered in front of your eyes or after you've waited out the transition period to allow your eyes to adjust to a new prescription, you should see your doctor again.
