Common refractive errors corrected with spectacles or contact lenses



Astigmatism is an uneven or irregular curvature of the cornea or lens, which results in blurred or distorted vision. Other symptoms of astigmatism include the need to squint, eye strain from squinting, headaches, and eye fatigue. In reality, most people have some degree of astigmatism, which is usually present at birth and is believed to be hereditary.


Hyperopia (Farsightedness)

Farsightedness, medically known as hyperopia, refers to vision that is good at a distance but not at close range. Farsightedness occurs when the eyeball is shorter than normal, as measured from front to back, or when the cornea has too little curvature. This reduces the distance between the cornea and retina, causing light to converge behind the retina, rather than on it.

Myopia (Nearsightedness)

Nearsightedness, medically known as myopia, refers to vision that is good at close range but not at a distance. It generally occurs because the eyeball is too "long" as measured from front to back.


Presbyopia (Aging Eyes)

Aging eyes, medically known as presbyopia, is a condition in which the lens of the eye gradually loses its flexibility, making it harder to focus clearly on close objects such as printed words. Distance vision, on the other hand, is usually not affected. Unfortunately, presbyopia is an inevitable part of aging and cannot be prevented by diet, lifestyle, or visual habits. However, it is treatable with several types of corrective lenses, including progressives, bifocals and trifocals, single-vision reading glasses, multifocal contact lenses and monovision therapy. 

Frequently asked questions
( FAQs)

My eyes feel dry and gritty. What can I do?

Decreased tear volume or poor quality tears can cause your eyes to become dry. Dryness also increases with age.

Some remedies are:


  • Wear wraparound sunglasses or other protective eyewear

  • Blink more frequently

  • Take eye breaks during long tasks

  • Drink more water

  • Drink less alcohol & stop smoking

  • Use artificial tears regularly

  • Check your eye care professional as dry eyes may be associated with allergies, thyroid disorders, vitamin deficiency, and other conditions.

What is the 20-20-20 rule?

Looking at screens like your computers, smartphones, and watches, television, or other digital devices can lead to eyestrain or computer vision syndrome (CVS). The 20-20-20 rule will help.
For every 20 minutes spent using a screen, you should look in the distance at something at least 20 feet away for a total of 20 seconds to relax your eye muscles.

What happens when I have eyestrain?

Common symptoms include:


  • Dry Eyes

  • Blurred vision

  • Watery Eyes

  • Headaches

  • Soreness if the neck, shoulders, and back

  • Sensitivity to light ( glare)

  • Difficulty concentration

  • Closure of eyes

Be sure to tell your eye care professional about any changes in your vision or the health of your eyes.
