Common vision problems. The most common vision problems are refractive errors, more commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia. Refractive errors occur when the shape of the eye prevents light from focusing directly on the retina.
yperopia or “farsightedness” occurs when the cornea is too flat, causing light to focus at a point beyond the retina. This results in blurry near vision. Occasionally, blurry distance vision will occur as well when suffering from farsightedness. Because the young eye can compensate for this condition, it may not be detected until later in life.
Symptoms of Hyperopia:
Blurry near vision and occasional blurry distance vision.
A complete eye exam is necessary to diagnose hyperopia. Since these tests are not offered at school, you should have your child’s eyes examined routinely by an eye health provider. The professionals at Infinity Eye Care Center can conduct a refractive evaluation to determine whether your eyes focus light rays exactly on the retina at distance and near. A visual acuity test will determine your ability to see sharply and clearly at all distances. During your examination, we will also check your eye coordination and muscle control, as well as your eyes’ ability to change focus. All of these are important factors in how your eyes see.
If you or your child has hyperopia, glasses and contact lenses may be used for temporary treatment. There are also several procedures such as LASIK performed at Infinity Eye Care Center that can surgically reduce or eliminate hyperopia.
