MYOPIA

 What is myopia?

Myopia is the refractive error that implies that nearby objects are clearly seen, but distant ones are blurred.

Who suffers from myopia?

Myopia is inherited and is often discovered in children and adolescents, when myopia usually increases. Between 20 and 40 years of age, there are usually few changes. Myopia can also occur in adults.

How is myopia corrected?

Myopia can be corrected by glasses, contact lenses or refractive surgery.

HYPEROPIA

What is hyperopia?

Hyperopia (farsightedness) is the refractive error that implies that distant objects usually look clear, but close ones are blurred.

Who suffers from hyperopia?

Hyperopia can be presented in different ways. Some people may not present any problem with their vision, especially when they are young. Other people with considerable farsightedness may have blurred vision at any distance, near or far.

How is hyperopia corrected?

Hyperopia can be corrected by glasses, contact lenses or refractive surgery.

    ASTIGMATISM

    What is Astigmatism?

    Astigmatism is a refractive error that implies that there is an irregular curve in the cornea

    (corneal astigmatism) or in the lens (lenticular astigmatism). They typically have a smooth

    surface that curves evenly in all directions. Your vision, both near and far, is blurry and objects

    will be seen distorted.

    Who suffers from Astigmatism?

    Astigmatism affects adults and children and is often accompanied by myopia (nearsightedness)

    or hyperopia (farsightedness). Adults with high astigmatism may notice distorted vision,

    especially at night. Children with symptoms of astigmatism often complain of headaches.

    How is astigmatism corrected?

    Astigmatism is corrected by glasses, contact lenses, and refractive surgery.

    PRESBYOPIA

    What is presbyopia?

    Presbyopia is the age-related eye condition that makes it difficult to see things up close. Over

    the years, our eyes age, and the crystalline lens (natural lens of the eye), previously

    transparent and flexible, becomes rigid and opacities may appear. This makes us unable to focus on nearby objects.

    Who suffers from presbyopia?

    Presbyopia affects people over 40 years of age.

    How is presbyopia corrected?

    Presbyopia is corrected with glasses, contact lenses, and refractive surgery.
