How do I know if I need to get a new pair of glasses?

I've worn the same pair of glasses for almost 5 years now - when should I check in with an eye doctor to check whether my eyesight has gotten worse?

Hi @WangXiuYing89 thats a great question! Eye care professionals recommend eye checks every 1 to 2 years depending on your background and age. If you experience eye tiredness, headaches after prolonged visual tasks (like reading, using the computer), or find yourself straining to read books or items at a distance (bus number, street signs, etc) you may want to visit an Optometrist to check your eye sight earlier. When in doubt, always good to speak to your GP or eye care professional to have a recommendation based on your individual needs.
