Parents always fuss about how often their children are visiting the physician for checkups and shots but people rarely make special trips to visit the eye doctor unless something is obviously wrong. The only problem with this is: why wait until something is extremely wrong? The smartest thing to do would be to know the signs you need glasses so you get it addressed before it leads to something worse. It’s important to be aware of the issues before the problem actually occurs. If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms, make an appointment with an eye doctor as soon are you’re available to do it.

1. Eye Pressure


Eye pressure usually accompanies a sinus infection. However, what does eye pressure mean if that is your only symptom? If you have a sinus infection, you’ll also experience congestion, distorted sense of smell, itching, loss of smell, or running nose. You might feel exhausted, or develop a fever. If you have none of the symptoms other than a eye pressure, you have another reason for slight concern. Obviously, it’s best for an Eye Doctor to take a look at the issue but it could be an indication of glaucoma. You might also notice that driving at night is becoming harder and harder for you and sometimes it feels as if you have tunnel vision. If this is you, it would be smart to get the problem addressed as soon as possible.

2. Halos Around Lights


To a degree, halo around light can be a normal thing. For example, if there’s a halo of light around a street lamp at night, that’s pretty standard. However, if you’re seeing halos around ordinary lights all the time, that’s a different story. Halos around lights is an early sign of cataracts and if addressed early, it can be treated a lot more efficiently than if you wait years and let it develop. The general advice is that you should visit the eye doctor every two years since your eyes are likely to change quickly. Though, if you have a history of eye disease, you should make appointments even more regularly than that to catch a problem before it gets any worse.

3. Headaches


Headaches are extremely common and there are a variety of different reasons behind why you might be getting them. There are cluster headaches, migraines, and tensions headaches and each one has a different cause. Some are caused by overactive pain receptors, others are caused by stress, and some headaches come for no reason at all. However, if your headache is located around your eyes and you often find yourself squinting during it, it could be directly related to your eyes. If your eyes are the reason why you’re getting headaches, this could mean a few different things. Most likely, it could mean that you’re near-sighted or far-sighted and your vision is being strained.

4. Trouble with Your Computer


Another sign that you may need to visit the Eye Doctor is that you’re having trouble being on your computer for any longer than a half hour. Computers are hard on your eyes for two main reasons. They emit a lot of blue light which causes eye strain and fatigue. It could also be a sign that you’re far-sighted and that looking at the close screen is difficult on your eyes. If you think that either of these are the case, you will want to schedule an appointment with the Eye Doctor. They’ll be able to fix these by prescribing glasses and help you find something that will block out some of the blue light if you’re sensitive to it.



You should make an effort to visit the Eye Doctor more often than not. The health of your eyes is important--especially as you get into your later years. You should also take care to learn about the history of eyes in your family. Learn if other members of the family have had a history of any type of near-sightedness or far-sightedness or eye disease.
