Every eye is different. Here are some of the possible causes of vision problems and how we can help correct them.


inability to focus on distant objects

Nearsightedness, or “myopia,” is the inability to focus on far objects. People who are nearsighted may be able to read books easily, but can’t focus clearly on objects farther away. Depending on how severe the problem is, they may not be able see clearly even a foot or two away.



inability to focus on near objects

People who are farsighted, or have “hyperopia,” can see like eagles at a distance—but even at an early age need lenses to focus up close.



Inability to focus on near objects

The cornea of the eye is normally round, like a sphere. In astigmatism, the cornea is less regular—shaped more like a football than a baseball. This causes blurriness at all distances.



Inability to focus on close objects

The eye’s natural lens is normally elastic and flexible. It works like a camera lens to automatically adjust and focus our vision. This lets us automatically switch our gaze from something near to something far away. Over time, the lens in your eye begins to stiffen. It can’t bend into the right shapes to bring close objects into clear focus. To compensate, you end up moving objects further away to help your eye to focus.



A clouding of the lens in your eye

A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s natural lens. Cataracts are a very common side effect of aging, and make the vision seem blurrier and often darker or yellower. If you are over 40, you probably have some degree of cataract forming already. But unlike your grandparents, you don’t have to wait until the cataract “ripens” to restore your vision.



A group of diseases that can damage the eye’s optic nerve

Glaucoma causes damage to the optic nerve. The optic nerve carries visual information from your eye to the brain. There are usually few symptoms in the early stages but glaucoma can cause blindness over time. Since glaucoma is a “silent” thief of sight, regular checkups are essential to prevention.



Spot your shape in your field of vision

Floaters are those annoying little spots and shapes that drift around in your field of vision. They’re especially noticeable when you’re looking at something plain, like a blue sky or a white piece of paper. They’re not painful, and they don’t generally indicate a serious problem. But you may want to get rid of them anyway.
