We talk often about the importance of routine eye exams to determine your eye health. However, today we are presenting some additions symptoms, that if persistent, could mean you need to get to an eye specialist soon.

  1. Eye pain – If your eyes are hurting, but alone, not as the cause of illness, you should look to have your eyes checked. It could be something little like dry eye, but it could be more serious.
  2. Watery, irritated eyes – Again, it could just be dry eye or a minor irritation, but it could also be a symptom of something more serious.
  3. Bloodshot eyes – Aging or eye fatigue can be a reason, but it could be more like a corneal ulcer.
  4. Temporary visual disturbances – Instances like brief partial or complete blindness are causes to have your eyes properly diagnosed.

Delaying evaluation of your symptoms could result in more serious health concerns. It’s always better to play it safe than be sorry. For questions on your eye health, contact our team.
