Eye Conditions

Astigmatism

Often mistakenly called “stigmatism,” this common vision problem can be corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses or refractive surgery.

Farsighted

Also called farsightedness, hyperopia is a common vision problem that can cause headaches, eyestrain and trouble reading.

Nearsighted

Also called nearsightedness, myopia is a very common vision problem, affecting up to one-third of the U.S. population.

Floaters, Spots, and Flashes

“Floaters” are usually normal and harmless. But if you notice a sudden increase in floaters or floaters accompanied by flashes of light, see your eye doctor immediately.

Presbyopia

Are you over age 40 and starting to hold reading material at arm’s length to see it clearly? You probably have presbyopia.

Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)

Commonly called “lazy eye,” amblyopia can be treated successfully if detected early enough in childhood.
