Eye symptoms to watch for!
Whilst many of us opt for a complete body checkup regularly, how many of us get our eyes checked every year? When was the last time you had your eyes checked? If you have to think hard as to when your last eye appointment was, chances are that it’s been quite a long time. You may ask, my eyes feel fine, why should I have them checked? Yes, it is natural because it’s the way we human beings are wired. But, just because our eyes are seemingly healthy that doesn’t mean that they are.
We seldom visit an eye doctor unless something serious happens. We tend to ignore niggling problems with our eye-sight as signs of aging or tiredness. But sometimes those seemingly trivial little niggles can be a sign of some vision-threatening problem. So what can you do about it? Well, listen to your body and its signals. What’s your body trying to tell you? Never brush off any early warning signs. Unusual eye symptoms that persist for more than a few days could be an indication that something is seriously wrong. Never ignore them. The following are certain eye symptoms that can indicate the need for emergency care.
- Sudden loss of vision in one eye
- Sudden hazy or blurred vision
- Flashes of light or black spots and
- Halos or rainbows around light
