Signs You Need New Glasses

How do you know you need new glasses?

Once you find a pair of glasses that you like, it can be hard to get a new pair. However, the time to get rid of your favorite pair of eye glasses will come. So, how can you tell when that time is? Here are some signs that you need new glasses.
Sign #1 - Squinting
Squinting is a sign that you need new glasses as people squint in order to focus their eyes better. You should only be squinting if it is unusually bright, so if you find yourself squinting a lot it may be time to get new glasses.
Sign #2 - Headaches
If you are seeing an increase in the number of headaches that you are experiencing, that may be a sign that you need to replace your glasses. Even if you can still see fine with them, headaches are a common sign of eye strain, so it may be time to consider updating your prescription.
Sign #3 - Issues Cleaning Your Glasses
If it is becoming increasingly difficult to clean your glasses, it may be because the lens coating on your glasses has broken down.
Sign #4 - Scratches
Scratches may not seem like a big deal, but they can actually affect your vision without you realizing it. This leads to eye strain, so if your lenses are scratched, it’s best to get a new pair of glasses.
Sign #5 - It's Been Awhile
If a lot of time has passed since your last eye exam, it’s time to schedule an exam to check your prescription and update it if necessary.
