Some Words Mentioned Throughout the Site

  • Refraction is performed to determine whether the eye is near-sighted, far-sighted or has astigmatism. This is done by means of a  phoropter which the patient looks through while the doctor looks at the eyes with a retinoscope, and changes a series of lenses  to find the clearest vision.
  • Keratometry may be used to evaluate the curvature of the cornea for fitting contact lenses.
  • Tonometry is performed to measure the pressure inside the eye.

What is Nearsightedness?

Also known as Myopia,nearsightedness is seeing things far away are blurry, while near vision is quite clear. This appears between the ages of 6 and 21 and may get worse until after age 30.

What is Farsightedness

Also known as Hyperopia, farsightedness is seeing things at a distance just fine, but their vision close up is blurry.

What is an Astigmatism?

Astigmatism is the result of the eye not being completely round. Your eye is shaped like a football (Go Bucks) and the light enters in a different way, causing you not to see as clearly as you should.

What is Presbyopia?

Presbyopia is the natural aging process of the eye. Yes, this means as you get older your eyes will more than likely become worse and worse. Your eye becomes wrinkly (like your skin) and loses its ability to change its focus to see objects close up.
