20 Signs That You May Need Eye Glasses
There are many signs that you may need glasses – some more obvious than others.
Even if you see no warning signs, a comprehensive eye exam with an independent eyecare professional can help you identify if you or your child needs vision correction.
NOTE: Infants should have their first comprehensive eye exam at 6 months of age. Children then should receive additional eye exams at 3 years of age, and just before they enter kindergarten or the first grade at about age 5 or 6.
If you are experiencing any of these, schedule an appointment with an eyecare professional who can give you a comprehensive eye exam.
