Are You Suffering from Vision Loss?

Age-related conditions and diseases can cause subtle changes in your vision that you may not notice right away. By the time you do notice the changes, you may have already suffered permanent vision loss. That’s why it’s important to have regular eye exams at Hofacre Optometric Corporation in Chino Hills and San Dimas. Regular checkups will enable us to catch and treat diseases in their early stages before they cause too much damage to your sight. Here are some common signs that you may be having vision problems that can lead to sight loss.

Signs of Vision Problems

Routine eye exams give you a good idea of the current state of your vision. If you have refractive errors, your optometry specialist will prescribe corrective lenses to improve your sight. Once you’re aware of your visual clarity and perception, you can be on the lookout for signs that indicate something is amiss with your vision. These signs could include:

  • Blurred or double vision

  • Sudden pain in or around your eyes

  • Sudden development of floaters, halos or flashes of light

  • Uncommon sensitivity to light  

  • Trouble distinguishing colors

  • Sudden headaches for no apparent reason

If you experience these or other problems with your sight, contact us for an eye checkup.   

Signs of Vision Loss

Sight loss can cause changes in your perception and behavior, prompting you to act or do things differently. You may find yourself constantly bumping into things or walking more carefully than usual, especially when stepping on or off curbs or walking up and down stairs. You may strain to see when trying to drive, read, watch TV, or engage in other activities. Here are a few more signs that could indicate loss of vision:

  • Under-reaching or over-reaching for objects

  • Difficulty writing in straight lines 

  • Dressing in mismatched clothing

  • Trouble cutting food or eating

  • Overfilling glasses when pouring drinks
