Common Eye Problems Treated at Saland Vision
Are you experiencing blurry vision while driving at night, when looking at your phone display — or maybe even both? Then you may be experiencing one of the common eye problems listed below. All of these eye problems cause blurry near or distance vision, or both at the same time, and can be easily diagnosed through a regular eye exam and treated with a prescription by a Saland Vision eye doctor.
Astigmatism is a common vision problem caused by an irregularly shaped cornea that prevents light from entering the retina properly, resulting in blurry or distorted vision. To restore clear vision, we will provide an accurate prescription for corrective glasses or contact lenses.
Hyperopia, or farsightedness, is a vision error that causes near vision to be blurry. People with hyperopia often have difficulty reading, seeing a computer screen or performing other near-work tasks. Hyperopia is caused by the eye being too short or misshaped to focus light rays onto the retina properly. The refractive error that occurs as a result can be corrected with prescriptive eye glasses or contact lenses.
Myopia, or nearsightedness, occurs when the eyeball is too long, or the cornea is overly curved, which prevents light rays from focusing onto the retina properly. The result is blurry distance vision, where people have problems seeing road signs, movie screens and other objects that are a few feet away. This common vision problem is easily corrected with prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses.
Presbyopia is vision loss that occurs with age, usually beginning around age 40. This condition occurs as a result of the gradual thickening and loss of flexibility of the eye’s lens, which begins to harden around this time. As a result, people with presbyopia have problems reading and seeing close-up objects clearly. The ophthalmologists at Saland Vision treats this condition by providing a prescription and corrective lens options.
