Your Vision


 

ec_vision_normal_eyeNormal: Vision in a normal eye.
ec_vision_nearsighted_diNearsightedness: Also known as Myopia, causes poor distance vision. If your eye is too long (front to back), or if your cornea has too much focusing power, images focus in front of the retina.
ec_vision_farsighted_diFarsightedness: Also know as Hyperopia, the opposite of Myopia. Distant objects are clear and close up objects appear blurry. This condition is the result of an eye that is too short, or a cornea that lacks the necessary refractive power to focus on the retina.
ec_vision_astigmatism_diAstigmatism: Astigmatism is a condition which blurs and distorts both distant and near objects. An astigmatic cornea has a different curvature from side-to-side and top-to-bottom.
ec_vision_cataract_diCataracts: A cataract is a cloudy or opaque area in the normally transparent lens of the eye. As the opacity thickens, it prevents light rays from passing through the lens and focusing on the retina, the light sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye. Early lens changes or opacities may not disturb vision. But as the lens continues to change, several specific symptoms may develop, including blurred vision, sensitivity to light and glare, increased nearsightedness, or distorted images in either eye.
ec_vision_glaucoma_diGlaucoma: Glaucoma is a specific pattern of optic nerve damage and visual field loss caused by a number of different eye diseases which can affect the eye. Most, but not all of these diseases are characterized by elevated intraocular pressure, which is not the disease itself, but the most important risk factor for the development of Glaucoma.
ec_vision_diab_retin_diDiabetic Retinopathy: Anyone with diabetes is at risk to develop Diabetic Retinopathy. High blood sugar associated with diabetes can damage blood vessels in the retina causing deposits to form blind spots and floaters in your field of vision. Early symptoms of Diabetic Retinopathy include double vision and difficulty reading or doing close work.

The absence of the above symptoms does not completely rule out the possible presence of these conditions and/or diseases. Only an examination by your doctor can verify their absence or presence.
