Blurry Close-Up VisionThis 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
Blurry Distance VisionThis 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.
Difficulty Seeing Close Up and Far AwayYou 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.
Difficulty Seeing At NightDifficulty 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.
Difficulty Adjusting From Dark to Light SurroundingsThe 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
