3 Signs You Need Reading Glasses

Eye Exams Westborough MAYou may have to wear glasses in order to see far off in the distance, but if you are starting to experience problems reading or seeing up close, then you may be in need of some reading glasses. To help you decide if it’s time to schedule your eye exam with Keamy Eye and Laser Centre, here are three signs that you need reading glasses.

Holding That Book Too Close

One of the telltale signs that you need reading glasses is when you have to hold your book exceptionally close to your face to see properly. If you have started to notice that your book inches closer and closer to your eyes page after page, this is a sure sign that you need to get your eyes examined for reading glasses.

Frequent Headaches

When you have a cold or the flu, it’s normal to have a headache. And, if you’ve been working extra hard at work, even some added stress can result in a headache or two. But if you seem to get frequent headaches for no rhyme or reason, this could be a sign that you need reading glasses. Poor vision causes people to have to place a strain on their eyes to see properly— in turn, causing headaches. With the proper eyeglass subscription, you should be able to kick your headaches to the curb in no time.

Halos

No, we aren’t talking about that angelic halo that hangs over your head. We are talking about glares of light that resemble halos, and that appear when you are trying to see in the distance. If you have started to notice that you see halos when you’re trying to watch TV, read a book, or look somebody in the eyes, then you may be in need of some reading glasses.

With a simple eye examination and the right prescription, you should be on your way toward being able to see up close and personal before you know it. To learn more about vision care or to schedule an appointment, contact Keamy Eye & Laser Centre today!
