Common Vision Problems

The human eye is designed so that light enters through the cornea at the front, passes through the internal structures and focuses on the retina, which is the nerve layer at the back of the eye. Errors in this focusing system result in blurred or distorted vision.
 
Am I Nearsighted (Myopic)?
In nearsightedness, or myopia, close objects can be seen clearly while distant objects appear blurred.  
 
Am I Farsighted (Hyperopic)?
With farsightedness, or hyperopia, additional effort is required to focus both at a distance and near. This can be difficult, resulting in eyestrain or headaches, or possible blurred vision.
 
Do I Have Astigmatism?
Astigmatism is a condition where the front surface of the eye is not round like a basketball, but shaped more like a football. All images are indistinct or blurred.
 
Am I Presbyopic?
Presbyopia is a natural part of the aging process in which your eye's ability to focus up close has gradually reduced. This generally affects those 40 or older.
 
All of these conditions can be corrected by altering the shape of the cornea. There are now several different procedures that work in this manner, but accomplish their results by different approaches. Each has its own set of advantages and one may be better for you depending on your particular case.
