For those with vision problems, glasses are a godsend. Thanks to the help of an optometrist, you can easily get a prescription and make seeing, and, by extension, life easier. However, over time there will come the need to change your prescription and you’ll notice this through certain tell tale signs.
In this post, Lifetime Vision Source™ will discuss the signs that you’re wearing the wrong prescription glasses.
If you’re wearing the wrong prescription glasses, it can cause blurry vision. Though blurriness can occur if you just received new prescription glasses, if it goes beyond two weeks then that might be a sign that you have the wrong prescription. If that happens, then it’s best you go to your local eye center to have them straighten things out.
Vertigo is the sensation of dizziness and being off-balance, regardless of whether or not you are standing or sitting. If you have vertigo associated with a prescription error, it’s possible that your depth perception has changed and may require a change of eyeglasses type. If you had vertigo beforehand, the wrong prescription could cause it to become worse.
The wrong prescription glasses can cause you some eye strain, which in turn can cause headaches for you. It’s often described as similar to the pain of a frontal headache. But the headaches aren’t always caused by wrong prescription; one way of finding out is by experimenting and taking off the glasses at certain times of day. If your headache is worse when wearing the glasses, then there might be an error in the prescription.
