Common Vision Conditions

Presbyopia

Presbyopia is a vision condition in which the crystalline lens of the eye loses its flexibility. This results in difficulty focusing on close objects. Learn More

Hyperopia

Hyperopia, or farsightedness, occurs when light entering the eye is focused behind the retina either because the eyeball is too short or the cornea has too little curvature. The retina functions similar to film in a camera. If light is not perfectly focused on the retina, vision will be blurred. Distant objects are generally clear but close ones do not come into proper focus. Learn More

Myopia

Myopia, or nearsightedness, occurs when light entering the eye is focused before it reaches the retina either because the eyeball is too long or the cornea has too much curvature. The retina functions similar to film in a camera. If light is not perfectly focused on the retina, vision will be blurred. In the case of nearsightedness, near objects are seen clearly but distant objects are blurred. Learn More

Astigmatism

Astigmatism is a vision condition that occurs when the front surface of your eye, the cornea, is slightly irregular in shape. This irregular shape causes light entering the eye to “split” into two separate parts instead of focusing to one precise point on the retina. Learn More
