Do You Need Eyeglasses Already?

Do you know how good your eyesight is? Chances are, you may have been to the optometrist or ophthalmologist and had your eyes examined. And then, you knew that you needed eyeglasses or contact lenses already. But did you know that more people were discovered to have some eyesight problems in the recent years?

As the National Health Institute reported,  “that although 94 percent of Americans aged 12 and older have good vision, the remaining six percent, or 14 million, are visually impaired. Of these, more than 11 million have uncorrected visual impairment, such as nearsightedness. They need eyeglasses or contact lenses to improve their vision. Teenagers, people with diabetes, Hispanics, and people who are economically disadvantaged have higher rates of visual impairment and can most benefit from corrective lenses. This study is published in the May 10, 2006 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.”

If you may be having some problems with you eyesight, then it’s best for you to go to the doctor. But if unsure, this video below might just help you know whether how good your eyes are.
