Types of Eye Diseases
Refractive errors are the most common cause of blurred vision and occur when the shape of the eye or cornea prevents light from entering the eye correctly.
Nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism are often diagnosed in childhood and progress into adulthood. Presbyopia is the development of nearsightedness as the patient ages and usually develops after 40.
Most refractive errors can be effectively treated with glasses, contact lenses or, in some cases, with laser eye surgery. To learn more about treatment options for your vision problems, visit your Total Vision optometrist for a comprehensive eye exam.
