Regular eye examinations (every two years) not only ensure you can see clearly, they can also detect certain health conditions, such as glaucoma, in their early stages. Other problems such as floaters in the eye, dry eyes & eye strain are manageable and we can offer you advice & treatments if required.
Common eye problems
Hyperopia or long sightedness means you can see distant objects clearly but objects near to are out of focus.
Myopia or short sightedness is a very common eye condition that causes distant objects to appear blurred and can be diagnosed during your eye test. Most cases are caused by a mix of genetic & environmental factors which affect the normal growth of the eye usually corrected by using corrective lenses in glasses or contact lenses.
A common problem when distorted vision is caused when the eye is not spherical (i.e. it's shape is more like a "rugby ball" than a"football"). This is corrected by using a cylinder shaped lens to focus light appropriately onto your retina. Read more about your optical prescription
