    I cant stop squinting when I read

    Hi, I am a college student and am having problems with my eyes lately. For the last two weeks or so I have been having trouble reading and have a need to squint at writing or when I drive at night to read road signs. It is getting very annoying and I am not sure what to do. It seems like I can still see okay, but I know I am squinting, because if I don't squint I can't see as well. I can see good from close up in a college classroom, but when I drive at night it is really hard to see, so I squint all the time. Any suggestions of what I should do? Thanks-Matt

    Hi, yeah I am going to get my eyes checked, I am really getting mad about my eyes. I guess I am probaly going too need eyeglasses. From what I have been reading on the internet it says squinting is a sign of a vision problem. Well, thanks for the advice.-Matt

    As long as your vision isn't impaired becuase of an infection or something a simple optometric exam should do the trick. Do your eyes burn? Water for than usual? Are they reddened? Otherwise, yup, you probably will need glasses for driving. Funny thing, however, is that I wore glasses for driving for a couple of years, stopped wearing them, got re-tested and found out that I didn't need them anymore. Good luck.

    maybe you are far-sighted and should get your eyes checked out because if it gets worst then your schoolwork will show the signs
