Eye Concerns: You may have eye concerns as a result of an underlying health condition like blood pressure or diabetes. Hypertension can also cause blurry vision. If you are over 40, you may have eyes getting dry, or uneasy due to excessive strain while reading; you might have presbyopia.

Prescription Concern: Your prescription may not be accurate if you haven’t taken the test right or communicated to your optometrist about your vision concern correctly. If you are using the same one for a long time. We recommend that you check your prescription every year.

Glasses Concern: Glasses sometimes do not get fitted correctly, or are not aligned as required. Maybe you need varifocals or multifocal and need to check your prescription with your optometrist.

Frames Concern: The frame might not fit your face correctly, sometimes the nose pads don’t adjust, or the frame is narrow or farther than necessary from your eyes making it difficult for your eyes to adjust to causing unnecessary strain.

Coating Concern: Clear Glasses may not always fulfill your eye concern and going in for anti-glare, digital and progressive lenses that filter the harshness of light through eyeglasses efficiently. Your cause of eye irritation may be the harsh sunlight or your excessive use of your digital devices.
