Glasses are accessories that will stick around with us for a long time. So, there's a certain pressure to choose the right one on the first try. With so many glasses shapes and styles available, the journey can be overwhelming. But does that stress increase when having high prescriptions?
If you were wondering, high prescription glasses are known for having thinner and lighter lenses than regular ones. Generally, they are recommended for people with strong prescriptions for nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. Anything above -5.00 diopters in each eye is considered a high prescription.
But, how can you tell which category of the prescription you fall under? Here are four symptoms:
- Blurred Vision
- Severe Headaches
Moreover, it is possible for people to start with regular prescriptions then move their way up with time, while others instantly get strong eye prescriptions from their first visit to the doctor. So, what causes the rapid change? There are two main factors: age and eye diseases. We all fear getting older, and with that process comes consequences, including eye diseases. If you ever noticed any changes in your vision with or without wearing glasses, we recommend getting yourself checked as soon as possible.
