Common Eye Vision Problems

……………………………………………………………………………………..

This condition is most frequently seen in young children and often inaccurately labeled “lazy eye.” Early detection is critical because the brain adapts to this condition by “turning off” the so-called “lazy” eye and the loss of vision becomes irreversible.

This condition occurs often in conjunction with farsightedness or nearsightedness. Astigmatism is a condition where the ball of the eye is more football shaped than spherical, causing it to focus incorrectly. Symptoms may include blurred near or distance vision, headaches, squinting and eyestrain.

This affects near vision, while having no effect on distance vision, which may actually be very good. This condition makes reading and work requiring details up close difficult.

In this condition the vision at a distance is blurry, while near vision is often quite good. This condition frequently appears between the ages of 6 and 21 and may continue to get worse until after age 30.

As we age, the eye gradually loses its ability to focus at close range, making reading and other work requiring close vision difficult. This condition appears in the late 30s and early 40s and can worsen with advancing age. It often requires the patient to go in for Progressive or Bifocal lenses or a combination of distance and reading glasses.
