Thinking About Prescription Eyeglasses?

If you find yourself struggling with your vision, there is a chance you may need a pair of prescription eyeglasses. Here are a few common warning signs to be on the lookout for, and if it turns out that you are in need of glasses, Gordon Optical carries a wide array of options – meaning you can always find the best fit for your vision and style.

Blurred Vision

The most common sign that you need prescription eyeglasses is blurred vision. Maybe you have difficulty seeing objects (either distant or close), or maybe reading is notably challenging. While you might simply assume that this is normal and something that everybody experiences, there is a good chance that you actually need prescription eyeglasses. Take note of how often you struggle with blurry vision, and whether it is with closer objects (farsighted) or further away (nearsighted). Regardless of the exact need, Gordon Optical is sure to have a variety of different frames to work with your lens needs. 

Focus & Strain

When reading (whether it be books or signs), do you find yourself straining? Maybe you frequently experience double vision, or simply cannot properly make out the words. If this describes you, there is a chance that you might need prescription eyeglasses. Some people often misinterpret this strain as exhaustion or blame it on distance. While this could be the case, it is better to be safe than sorry and check with a professionals to see if prescription eyeglasses could benefit you. Strain and lack of focus can be harmful long term, so get started as soon as possible.

Eye Exhaustion

While staring at a screen becomes exhausting for the vast majority of people, if you find yourself abnormally drained after reading a book, working, or doing anything else involving reading, there is a chance you need prescription eyeglasses. Those who need glasses often find their eyes tired and strained at the end of the day, or maybe even watery. Getting the right pair of glasses can mean all the difference in terms of both comfort and health. 

Light Halos

Do you see halos around objects that are either bright or are in bright environments? If so, this could be a sign that something is off with your vision and you should have it examined by a doctor. Ultimately, having a set of glasses that utilizes the right prescription can solve this and many of the issues listed above. We’re here to help make sure that this transition to eye wear is as easy as possible with our professional and courteous staff.
