Many people are unaware of the fact that when there are problems with one area of the body, it's often a signal that there may be problems in another part of the body that might be contributing to or causing it. Our eyes can tell us a lot about the onset of conditions such as allergies, other illnesses, and certain diseases like diabetes. Left unchecked, these problems would continue to increase and worsen. Therefore, it's imperative that all health issues be detected that may interfere with the seamless operation of our bodies, including within our eyes.
Near-Sighted and Far-Sighted Vision
A major vision defect that a wide range of people experience is near-sighted and far-sighted vision. These are refractive disorders that develop due to the irregular shape of the eye, causing an abnormal curvature in the cornea and lens. In near-sighted vision, people can clearly see nearby objects, but objects far away appear blurry. In far-sighted vision, objects far away can be seen clearly, while objects nearby are blurry. Both conditions can be corrected using glasses and contact lenses, or they can be remedied during refractive surgery by reshaping the cornea.
Bifocal lenses provide two different optical views in one lens. These glasses can help correct sight by providing the top part of the lens for clearer distance vision, while the smaller bottom portion of the lens provides clearer vision for nearby objects. Our optometrists can diagnose near-sighted and far-sighted symptoms, as well as other refractive disorders such as presbyopia and astigmatism. We can then propose the best treatment plans to correct these problems.
