Eye health problems

Common symptoms that may indicate eye health problems include noticing a sensitivity to bright light or finding it difficult to adapt when going from a dark to a light environment, such as being outside in the evening and then going into a well-lit house. You may also notice that colours are not as sharp as they once were and appear faded.

Some people findthings appear to be blurry or have difficulty reading, even if they are wearing reading glasses. You may notice a kind of smudge or smear in your vision or that straight lines do not appear to be straight.

If you have any of these symptoms, you should make an appointment with an optometrist straight away as early diagnosis is important with eye conditions.
