Everything You Need to Know About Correctable Vision Problems, Amherst, Ohio

While everyone prefers to have 20/20 vision, many people suffer from a host of vision problems. Fortunately, many conditions are corrected by an eye exam and prescription. The professionals at the office of Eric G. Stocker, OD, in Amherst, OH, provide a wide range of services, from routine eye exams to disease screenings. They are here to discuss a few of the common vision conditions that can be easily corrected.

3 Vision Problems That Are Easily Treated

1. Astigmatism 

Astigmatism is an imperfection in the curvature of the cornea, or in the shape of the eye's lens. It impacts the way you process light, which causes symptoms of blurry vision when observing both near and far objects. Fortunately, astigmatism can be corrected with prescription contacts, eyeglasses, and LASIK surgery.

2. Hyperopia & Myopia

visionHyperopia refers to farsightedness, which means you can see objects far away clearly, but up close they are blurry. In contrast, Myopia is nearsightedness, where objects up close are vivid, but far away are illegible. Both conditions can be corrected with an eye exam and prescription.

3. Presbyopia

Presbyopia is a common vision condition that occurs due to aging, and it causes your eyes to gradually lose the ability to see objects clearly up close. While there is no way to reverse this process, it can be corrected with eyeglasses, surgery, or contact lenses. Without a prescription, however, you may suffer from headaches and eye strain.
