  1. What Causes Darkened Vision?

    What Causes Darkened Vision? If you ever experience sudden vision changes, it’s okay to be alarmed. After all, you might be trying to figure out what caused them and what you can do to restore your eyesight.

  2. Is Astigmatism a Refractive Error?

    Is Astigmatism a Refractive Error? You may have heard about astigmatism before, but how much do you really know about it?

  3. What Causes Astigmatism to Worsen?

    What Causes Astigmatism to Worsen?

    For the most part, astigmatism stays the same or changes gradually from one eye appointment to the next. But like other eye issues, your vision can change with time--and sometimes for no obvious reason. 

    What causes astigmatism to worsen? It depends on you and your eyes. Your astigmatism symptoms may be more severe if you have other refractive issues or if you have keratoconus. The length of time you’ve had astigmatism also plays a role in your condition’s progression.

    The most effective way to find out why your astigmatism is changing (or appears to be changing) is to schedule a comprehensive eye exam with an Independent Doctor of Optometry. We recommend them every year for adults and children over age 6 to mitigate any vision issues or other eye health problems.

  5. Is There a Treatment for Presbyopia?

    Is There a Treatment for Presbyopia?

    If you experience any presbyopia symptoms, such as near vision difficulties, we recommend contacting a nearby eye doctor right away for an appointment. In general, our optometrists recommend contacts, multifocal glasses, or reading glasses to get your vision back on track.

    However, it’s important to know that the right presbyopia treatment lens varies based on your unique prescription. Your eye specialist may recommend another option if they feel a specific type of lens may suit your eyes better or if your presbyopia is accompanied by any other refractive errors or eye issues. 

    No matter how long you’ve had presbyopia, our team can help. 

    Call today to get in for a comprehensive eye appointment with our leading optical team. We look forward to meeting you and helping you see better.

  6. Hyperopia vs. Presbyopia: What Is the Difference?

    Hyperopia vs. Presbyopia: What Is the Difference?

    At some period in your life, you may get a refractive error. You might even end up having hyperopia and presbyopia at the same time. The symptoms of these two eye issues are similar, often involving problems with near vision.

    So, what is the difference between hyperopia vs. presbyopia? Presbyopia firms your eye lenses as you age, and it often impacts middle-aged adults. Hyperopia affects adults and children, and your eye’s inability to process light (or having an irregular corneal curve) causes it.
