Good Eyecare Begins With A Yearly Eye Exam!

Although many do not realize it, the best way to protect your vision is with a yearly eye examination. Individuals can be unaware of problems because there are often no obvious signs or symptoms. It is important to detect and treat vision problems early in order to maintain good vision and eye health.

Vision Conditions

Following are Vision Conditions that regularly scheduled eye exams can prevent or allow for early detection and treatment:

  • Myopia (Nearsightedness) Condition in which near objects are seen clearly, but distant ones are out of focus. This occurs if the eyeball is too long or the cornea has too much curvature. Nearsightedness is very common. Eyeglasses or contact lenses can correct nearsightedness and may be necessary for certain activities, including watching a movie or TV screen.

  • Hyperopia (Farsightedness) Condition in which distance objects are seen clearly, but close ones are out of focus. This occurs if the eyeball is too short or the cornea does not have enough curvature. Symptoms include difficulty concentrating and maintaining focus on close objects, eye strain, fatigue and/or headaches, aching or burning eyes, discomfort after long-term concentration. Comprehensive eye exams are necessary to determine farsightedness, as common vision screenings often cannot detect the problem.

  • Presbyopia Loss of flexibility in your eyes’ crystalline lens, causing difficulty focusing on close objects. This is a natural part of aging, typically occurring in the early to mid-40s. Signs include reading at arm’s length, blurred vision and eye fatigue. Presbyopia is not a disease and cannot be prevented.

  • Astigmatism Causes blurred vision due to the irregular shape of the cornea or the curvature of the lens inside the eye. The irregular shape prevents light from centering on the retina and creates blurred vision at any distance. This is a very common condition and often occurs with other vision conditions, such as nearsightedness and farsightedness. Astigmatism can be treated with eyeglasses, contact lenses, orthokeratology (treatment to reshape the cornea), and/or laser and other refractive surgery procedures.

  • Strabismus (Crossed Eyes) Occurs when one or both of the eyes turns in, out, up or down. This is often caused by poor eye muscle control. Treatments include eyeglasses, prisms, vision therapy, and sometimes, surgery. If detected early, it can often be corrected.

  • Amblyopia (Lazy Eye) Loss or lack of development in one eye. Often associated with crossed-eyes or large differences in degrees of nearsightedness and farsightedness between the two eyes. Lazy Eye cannot be corrected with lenses. Treatments include prescription lenses, prisms, vision therapy and eye patching.

  • Spots and Floaters Small cloudy specks or particles within the vitreous (clear fluid that fills the inside of the eyes), caused during formation of the eyes before birth, deterioration of the vitreous fluid from aging, or some eye diseases or injuries. This condition rarely has an effect on vision and typically found to be harmless.
