When to Change Your Prescription Glasses?  

Your prescription eyewear should last one to three years. Some signs might signal you need to change your prescription eyewear, such as vision problems.  

These vision problems could include blurry vision, headaches, squinting at the screen, lens damage, and double vision. If you have these symptoms, visit your eye doctor. 

However, the length of use of prescription eyewear depends on person to person.  


Here are some of the common reasons why your prescription eyewear has changed:  

  • Myopia  
  • Cataracts  
  • Age-related degeneration  
  • Astigmatism  
  • Keratoconus  
  • Presbyopia  


The changes in your vision should not be a cause for fear as some of these changes can be normal. Contact your doctor and talk to them about these changes.
