Common Vision Conditions
Q. What is nearsightedness?
A. Nearsightedness (myopia) is a vision condition in which you see
close objects clearly but cannot see distant ones as clearly.
Q. What is farsightedness?
A. Farsightedness (hyperopia) is a vision condition in which distant
objects are usually seen clearly but close ones appear blurred.
Q. What is astigmatism?
A. Astigmatism is a vision condition that occurs when the front sur
face of your eye (cornea) is slightly irregular in shape, resulting
in vision being blurred at all distances.
Q. What is presbyopia?
A. Presbyopia is a vision condition that occurs when the crystalline
lens of the eye gradually loses its ability to bring close objects
into clear focus. It usually becomes noticeable when you reach
your early- to mid-forties and is a natural part of aging.
Q. How are these vision conditions treated?
A. Nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia
are all treated with eyeglasses, contact lenses, and in some
cases, vision therapy.
Q. What is amblyopia?
A. Amblyopia (lazy eye) is the loss or lack of the full development
of vision in one eye that is not fully correctable with lenses and is
not the result of any identifiable eye health problem. Amblyopia
is usually due to conditions such as crossed-eyes (strabismus)
or a large difference in the refractive error between the two eyes.
Q. How is amblyopia treated?
A. In young children, patching the good eye may help the ambly
opic eye to improve. In older children and adults, other vision
therapy techniques may be used.
Q. What are crossed-eyes?
A. Strabismus (crossed-eyes) is a vision condition in which your
eyes are not properly aligned with each other. One or both eyes
may turn in (esotropia), out (exotropia), up (hypertropia) or down
Q. How are crossed-eyes treated?
A. Treatment of crossed-eyes often includes use of eyeglasses,
prisms and vision therapy. In extreme cases, surgery may be
Q. What Is glaucoma?

ball increases and damages the optic nerve. This damage can
cause sever vision loss and even blindness, if untreated.
Q. How Is glaucoma treated?
A. Glaucoma can be effectively treated with prescription eye drops
or other medicines which reduce the eh pressure in the eye. In
some cases, surgery may be needed.
Q. What are cataracts?
A. If tha normally clear lens in your eye becomes cloudy, it is called
a cataract As the lens becomes cloudy vision becomes blurred
Q. How are cataracts treated?
A. Eyeglasses or contact lenses can be prescribed to provide clear
vision until cataracts develop to the point that they impair vision.
Then they need to be removed surgically.
During this surgery, an intraocular lens implant is usually inserted
to replace your natural lens.
However, contact lenses or eyeglasses are also often still needed
to fully restore vision.
Q. What is conjunctivitis?
A. Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the thin,
transparent layer covering the surfaces of your inner eyeball and
a portion of the front of your eyeball.
The three main types are infectious (pink eye), allergic and chemi
Q. How Is conjunctivitis treated?
A. Antibiotics are prescribed to treat the infectious forms. The ideal
treatment for allergic and chemical forms is to remove the cause
of the inflammation. If that is not possible, prescription and non
prescription eye drops are available to help relieve the discom
