Blurred vision can be caused by a number of different things. These range from conditions that simply need correcting with glasses or contact lenses, to medical conditions such as glaucoma or diabetes. An eye exam will be able to give a clearer understanding of what’s causing this symptom.
Dry, red or itchy eye
Dry or red eyes may be caused by staring at a screen without blinking for long periods of time. Eye drops can help, but if these symptoms continue visit your local Specsavers store.
Diabetes and other medical conditions that could affect your eyesight means that you’ll have to have your eyes examined more often.
These are small shapes that some people see floating in their field of vision. They can be different shapes and sizes and range from tiny black dots to cloud like spots. Although they can be caused by aging and are often harmless, it’s important that you book an appointment to get your eyes checked.
Poor near and/or distance vision
If you are struggling with poor long and/or short vision then visit a Specsavers store to have an eye exam and get the right glasses prescription.
If you have a family history of diabetes, glaucoma, macular degeneration or high blood pressure then you’ll need to get your eyes checked out more than once every two years. Your optometrist will be able to advise on how many times a year they wish to see you.
