3 Vision Problems to Look Out For During the Holidays

Eye careIf there’s one thing that you want to do during the holidays it’s getting through it without anyone crying or getting sick. To help make sure that your vision and eye health stays as strong as possible, we have created a list of a few things to be on the lookout for.

Difficulty Reading

Whether you’re having difficulty reading Christmas cards from loved ones or the latest holiday-themed magazine you just got in the mail if you have noticed that you are having a difficulty reading then you may need corrective glasses. If you already wear reading glasses, then it may just be time for a stronger prescription.

Starbursts

Have you noticed that every time you look at Christmas lights that you see starbursts around every light? If so, this could be a sign that you either need vision corrective lenses or that you have the beginning signs of glaucoma or cataracts.

Headaches

The last thing that you want around the holidays is to get frequent headaches. If you notice that you are getting more headaches than normal then you may be wondering what on earth they are caused by. If you are experiencing any blurred vision as well, then your headaches may be caused by poor vision. During a simple eye examination from Keamy Eye and Laser Centre, we should be able to give you a better idea of whether or not your poor vision is causing eye issues.

In addition to watching out for these vision issues, we also encourage our patients to come to our office for a yearly eye exam. To learn more about eye examinations or eye health in general, contact our Westborough office today and call us at 508-836-8733.
