3 Signs You Need New Glasses:

  1. Experiencing extensive eye strain and fatigue: Neck pain, headaches, and dry eyes all signal eyes are getting tired and may need a correction. After getting a new prescription from an eye doctor, try lens treatments like UltraXBlu to help filter harmful blue light from digital screens for additional protection.
  2. Vision Changes: Any changes to your sight like blurred vision or squinting to see clearly are key indicators it’s time for an eye exam. Most likely, new glasses with an updated lens prescription will do the trick.
