Where we want instant results and our mind has been trained to act defensive. Means when problem arise then we go for quick and convenient solution.

So, when should you get an eye check? That might be question arise in your mind.  Everyone is not the same so it is important to follow the advice your eye care provider recommends.  Here are five reasons why you should get your eye check.

1. Sudden Blurry Vision or Problems Focusing

Sudden blurry vision or focus problems can be a sign of a larger health issue and should always be taken seriously. If the blurry vision comes and goes, or is limited to one eye, you should schedule an exam with an optometrist or ophthalmologist as soon as possible and get eye check

2. Headaches

Frequent headaches can be a sign of a vision problem. Changes in vision take place slowly and are often imperceptible to the patient at first. However, headaches can be one of the early warning signs of a change in vision. If you are experiencing re-occurring headaches, you may want to consider getting your eyes checked.

3. Eye Pain or Eye Fatigue/Strain

Having some infrequent eye pain or eye strain isn’t usually a big problem. Everything from the amount of sleep your getting to seasonal allergies, or the cold or flu can cause temporary eye pain or fatigue. However, if you experience ongoing eye pain for more than a few days, or if you experience ongoing eye pain with eye movements, it’s a good idea to get it checked out. It can sometimes be a sign of an eye infection or more serious health condition, or even a warning sign that your vision has changed. Get it checked out.

4. Sensitivity to Light

A sudden onset of  sensitivity to light can be a sign that you should get an eye exam. Light sensitivity can be a symptom of a number of disorders or eye diseases (as well as an eye infection.)  So if you find yourself regularly experiencing light sensitivity, get an eye exam.

5. An Eye Infection

If you experience swelling of the eyelids, itchiness, redness, a pink discoloration of the whites of your eyes, and/or discharge, you may have an eye infection.  If you experience any of these symptoms, schedule an eye exam immediately to have it looked at.
