We have pronounced farewell to the old and, as we embrace the new with hope, dreams, and ambition, we wish all our clients and readers of our blogs an extraordinary 2021.
May every day of this new year inspire you, and may you be filled with gratitude for a pair of eyes that allow you to appreciate the beauty that surrounds you. As you step into this new chapter, we anticipate that you have made a resolution to take exceptional care of the windows to your soul. We, therefore, suggest you consider the following signs which may indicate that you need new glasses.
- Headaches – out-of-date prescriptions can cause eye strain, which can lead to headaches.
- Squinting, in order to better focus your eyes and reduce the amount of light entering them, may mean you need a new prescription.
- Scuffs, and scratches may seem unobtrusive and you are probably unaware how negatively they could be affecting your vision.
- Some lenses are treated with special coatings that can break down over time, leaving a film that makes your glasses blurry and difficult to clean.
- Your glasses may be outdated and there may be new developments that can enhance your vision and make the experience of wearing specs even better.
- Even if you have no problems with your glasses, or your eyes, an annual comprehensive eye examination is recommended. When did you last visit your optometrist?
It may be tough to discard those ‘old faithfuls’ that suit you so well and have become part of your persona but there is a time to let go because you’ll need clear, healthy eyes to fulfil the lesson in this insightful quote from Paramahansa Yogananda…
“Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.”
