People diagnosed with refractive errors usually wear prescribed eyeglasses to clearly see through. Whether yours is the first experience or perhaps a tenth pair or eyeglass, sharp and clear vision is the ultimate achievement.
Certain eye exercises and vision therapies can strengthen your eyes and help you see better in the long run, but then, some prefer a quicker solution for which eyeglasses are the best. Although opticians and ophthalmologists are trustworthy, to err is human, so we may expect a bit of bias.
Having a wrong prescription is possible so here’re a few things to consider before getting a new one.
The first symptom of wearing incorrect prescription is a headache. Try wearing someone else’s glasses just for once, and you’re likely to have a throbbing head and dizziness. But on getting a new prescription, headache won’t reoccur all of a sudden as compared to wearing the wrong one.
You might as well pay attention to frequent headaches after wearing the new glasses for a few hours or days which is either a sign of underlying eye anomaly other than weakened sights such as dry eye syndrome or any other.
‘Vertigos’ are more extreme than just the usual dizziness. If the sensation of dizziness is accompanied by the feel of unbalanced posture, it’s ‘vertigo’ cause by wearing incorrect eyeglasses. And while this specific condition is mostly associated with inner ear problems, vertigo can be caused by blurry vision and putting on the wrong prescriptions would worsen the condition.
If you’ve never been diagnosed with vertigo ever but experiencing the symptoms just after getting the new prescriptions, consult with the doctor immediately for detailed diagnosis!
- Blurry vision
Blurred vision is perhaps the most intimidating signs of wearing wrong prescriptions. It’s just that you excitedly leave the optician’s clinic thinking about seeing things clearly but, things get awry when your vision’s fuzzy and blurry eventually.
There’s always a silver lining as blurred vision may just be a sign of your eyes adjusting to the new lenses, and the condition might resume for a few days. Still, of the onset persists for more than two weeks, consult the eye doctor and have your vision evaluated.
Our eyes are most sensitive, and though they easily adjust to the change, even the slightest error can have a big impact on their ability to see clearly. That said; blurry vision if left untreated in the long run can compromise overall health besides vision.
A wrongly prescribed eyeglass is just like having indifferent legs that can misalign your entire body and the same is for the eyes. Even the slightest miscalculation triggers blurry vision which intensifies into headaches, migraines and vertigos.
Always consult with a professional eye doctor, but in case they make a mistake, it’s better to discuss than dragging the issue unnecessarily which can permanently damage your vision and overall eye health.
