Not being able to see clearly in the dark is a strong indicator that an eye exam is needed. If  street signs are blurry or road markings are unclear, it is time to get your eyes checked. These may be signs that you need glasses or contacts.

If it has been over a year since you have been to your eye doctor, you are due for another exam. Make an eye exam a part of your annual health routine.  These exams can indicate symptoms of cholesterol issues, high blood pressure, and diabetes that may have been previously undetectable. Not only will you be protecting your eyes, you will be protecting your overall health.

If your vision becomes blurry or you experience sudden discomfort after staring at a computer screen, you may need to get an eye exam. While eyes do tend to get dry naturally after starring at a screen, a sudden change in reaction to computer screens could indicate eye problems.
