10 Reasons You Need an Eye Exam

About half of all Americans wear corrective lenses in the form of glasses or contact lenses. Many more should, but resist because they don’t want to deal with the hassle of eyewear. If you’ve been putting off a trip to the doctor, or if you are ready to give up your lenses for good, now is the time to learn more about LASIK vision surgery. LASIK surgery has been performed abroad for years, and there is no shortage experienced eye doctors performing LASIK at prices 50% below those in the U.S. Call 866-978-2573 for more information.

  1. 1

    Blurry Close-Up Vision

    This means you are probably farsighted (hyperopia). Farsightedness is often present from birth, but most children outgrow the condition. As we get older, glasses or contacts may be needed for correction. http://patients.nuehealth.com/vision

  2. 2

    Blurry Distance Vision

    This means you are probably nearsighted (myopia). This occurs when the physical length of the eye is greater than the optical length. Myopia affects women and men equally.

  3. 3

    Difficulty Seeing Close Up and Far Away

    You may have an astigmatism, a very common condition. With astigmatism, the cornea is abnormally curved, causing your vision to be out of focus. The cause is unknown, but it is usually present from birth. It often occurs together with nearsightedness or farsightedness. Chat with a medical case manager today: 866-978-2573.

  4. 4

    Difficulty Seeing At Night

    Difficulty seeing at night is often referred to as night blindness, and is also known as impaired dark adaptation. With this condition, people typically see poorly in the dark, but normally when adequate amounts of light are present. A typical symptom is difficulty driving at night. Interestingly, the typical 50-year-old driver needs twice as much light to see as well after dark as a 30-year-old. Call 866-978-2573 for more information.

  5. 5

    Difficulty Adjusting From Dark to Light Surroundings

    The iris contains tiny muscles that control the size of the pupil. As you get older, these muscles weaken, affecting the eye’s ability to adjust when the intensity of light changes. This means it may take you a few moments to see normally after a surprise camera flash goes off in a dark room. http://patients.nuehealth.com/vision

  6. 6

    Difficulty Working at a Computer

    People who spend more than two hours on a computer each day may experience symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). Symptoms include headaches, focusing difficulties, burning eyes, tired eyes, general eyestrain, aching eyes, dry eyes, double vision, blurred vision, light sensitivity, and neck and shoulder pain.
    Why? Characters displayed on a computer screen are made up of small dots called pixels. Each pixel is brightest in the center, with the brightness decreasing toward the outer edges, meaning the edges are not crisp, but wavy. The eyes will begin to strain after focusing on these wavy images over long periods of time.
