Having good vision is something most people tend to take for granted until their vision starts to fade. And although blurred vision may be the number one indicator of failing vision, some symptoms are a little less obvious. Let’s take a closer look at a few of them.
Frequent headaches— especially after trying to read or staring at computer screen all day— may be an indication that your vision is getting worse. When you have poor vision, and you have to strain your eyes to focus on things like a movie or the words on a computer screen, it can lead to frequent headaches.
- Light Sensitivity
It’s normal to walk from a dark room (like a movie theater) into natural to light and have to take a second for your eyes to adjust. If, however, you are experiencing light sensitivity more often, then this may also be an indication that you have vision problems.
- Fatigue After Reading
Reading a boring book is one way to put you to sleep before you are done counting sheep, but if you experience a lot of fatigue after reading almost every time, then this is another sign of poor vision. Similar to headaches, when you are placing an extreme amount of strain on your eyes to try to see what’s in front of you, it can make them extra tired and fatigued.
- Inability to See Well At Night
Does it seem like your vision is good until you go to get behind the wheel at night? Have you noticed that it’s a lot harder to see things like stop signs at night? If so, then this also may be a sign that you need glasses or contacts.
