Do You Have A Refractive Error?

Published: 2016-10-18

Are you having problems with vision focus? Refractive errors can affect both children and adults causing a variety of problems that require professional eye care. The most common refractive errors are hyperopia, myopia, presbyopia and astigmatism.

Hyperopia

Hyperopia, which is commonly known as farsightedness, makes it difficult to focus on objects that are close by. Hyperopia causes the light to focus behind the eye instead of directly on the retina. This condition is usually inherited and occurs because the eye is too short. Although most people do not even notice they have a refractive error, hyperopia can become more severe over time. Your eye doctor can give you glasses or contacts to correct the refractive error and give you the ability to see clearly.

Myopia

Myopia, or nearsightedness, makes it difficult to focus on objects that are far away. This condition causes the light to focus in front of the retina because the eye is too long or the eye does not curve properly. Myopia can be mild enough to make someone need glasses to see far away objects. If a person has severe myopia, though, he or she might need to wear glasses or contacts at all times.

Presbyopia

This condition develops as the eye ages and affects the way a person can focus on close up objects. When the lens can no longer change shapes efficiently, it cannot properly focus the light.

Astigmatism

People with astigmatism now have more options now than ever for correcting their vision. This condition develops because the light cannot focus evenly across the retina. If your vision appears blurry or stretched out, you should schedule an appointment with an eye care professional.
