this will sound dumb - but...

If you have glasses what was going on that made you go to the eye doctor?

  • I was in fifth grade when I got my first pair. I couldn't see the blackboard and wasn't writing down problems correctly. The teacher moved me up to the front of the classroom, but I still needed to get up closer to see small print.
    My parents both wear glasses and when the teacher called them, it was pretty obvious it was time for an appointment with the optometrist.

    Headaches are common.

  • When I was in high school, my vision began to get fuzzy when looking at things at a distance. But I knew I was going to have to get glasses because both sides of my family has bad vision, though I am lucky and I don't have as bad vision as other people.

    However, it is recommended that you get your eyes checked out at least once a year to every two years. But other reasons to go could be weird vision issues, headaches, dry eyes.

  • I was 9 years old. I went because my teacher told my mom I was having trouble seeing the blackboard. I go now every couple of years or so, when I notice my vision is starting to blur a bit and I know it's because I need a stronger perscription.
