There are a couple of things you should look out for to tell if your vision has been deteriorating. Here are three tip-offs that you need to see an ophthalmologist or an optometrist:
- If you experience eye fatigue quicker than usual when you're doing some activity that you normally do, like working on a computer;
- If your eyes get tired earlier in the day-say you can't read in bed anymore, though you used to read before you fell asleep;
- If it takes your eyes a little longer than normal to recover to bright lights you see at night (say 7 to 10 seconds as opposed to 3). This is especially evident when you're driving.
