There are also three different
types of focusing problems which may require the need for corrective lenses.
- Myopia ("Nearsightedness")
- Hyperopia ("Farsightedness")
Myopia or nearsightedness is
inherited and often discovered in children when they are eight to twelve years
old. A myopic eye is longer than normal, causing light rays to focus in front of
the retina. This causes close objects to look clear, but distant objects appear
Hyperopia or farsightedness is
caused by light entering the eye and focusing behind the retina. A hyperopic eye
is shorter than normal. Older people who are farsighted can see far away objects
better than those close at hand. Most children are normally a little farsighted
but have no problems seeing objects up close or at a distance. Hyperopia needs
to be corrected in young people if it causes decreased vision or is associated
with crossed eyes.
Astigmatism occurs when light rays
enter the eye and focus at different places on the retina. It distorts and blurs
vision for both near and far objects. In a normal eye, the cornea (front surface
of the eye) is round, like a basketball. If you have astigmatism, the cornea is
shaped more like a football.
