Differences Between Nearsightedness and Farsightedness

Refractive errors are the most common cause of poor vision and a need for vision correction. Nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism are all types of refractive errors. Astigmatism is an uneven curvature of the cornea and lens of the eye, which results in poor vision. Nearsightedness (myopia) and farsightedness (hyperopia) are also related to the shape […]


LASIK Eye Surgery for Farsightedness

LASIK eye surgery (laser in-situ keratomileusis) is the preferred and most common laser eye surgery procedure to correct farsightedness (hyperopia). Farsightedness is a common refractive error that causes light to incorrectly bounce off the retina, skewing vision. Farsightedness occurs when the eye is too short. The focal point of the eye is beyond the retina, […]


LASIK Eye Surgery for Nearsightedness

Nearsightedness (myopia) is a common cause of blurred vision, making it difficult to see objects in the distance clearly. It is considered a refractive error, and is most often caused from a variation of normal eye shape, not from a disease, though it may be caused by another disease or condition. Most nearsighted individuals have […]


Refractive Error and Treatment Options

If you wear glasses or contact lenses to correct blurry vision, more than likely, that blurry vision is due to a refractive error. Our vision is dependant on how light that enters our eyes is refracted, or bent. Light must be refracted properly to allow us to focus, and not have blurred vision. When light […]
