Blurred vision refers to a lack of sharpness of vision resulting in the inability to see fine detail. Blurred vision may result from abnormalities such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia, or astigmatism that can be improved with corrective lenses (eyeglasses) or it may signal the presence of eye disease.Request an Appointment
Dry eye occurs when the eyes produce too few tears or the tears evaporate too fast. The condition can affect one or both eyes. Lifestyle changes can help, but in severe cases, a person may need medication or surgery.Learn More
A drooping eyelid is also called ptosis or blepharoptosis. In this condition, the border of the upper eyelid falls to a lower position than normal. In severe cases, the drooping eyelid can cover all or part of the pupil and interfere with vision.Learn More
As we grow older, our night vision worsens. We have fewer rods (light-sensitive cells in our eyes that distinguish between light and dark) to detect objects in low light and our eyes’ lenses become stiffer and cloudier. Other conditions such as astigmatism can also make it difficult to see at night, affecting peripheral vision and depth perception and worsening glare.Request an Appointment
Halos are bright circles that surround a light source, like headlights. Glare is light that enters your eye and interferes with your vision. Halos often show up when you’re in a dim or dark place. Glare is more likely in the daytime. They're a normal response to bright lights, but deeper problems can also bring them on.Request an Appointment
Astigmatism is a common type of refractive error. It means that some part of your eye (either the cornea or lens) is more curved than it should be. This altered eye shape makes your vision blurry. Most cases of astigmatism can be treated with corrective lenses like eyeglasses or contact lenses.Request an Appointment
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a very common vision disorder that is usually diagnosed before age 20. Myopia affects your distance vision. You can see objects that are near well, but have trouble viewing objects that are far, such as grocery store aisle markers or road signs.Request an Appointment
Inability to see objects clearly from a close distance can be the result of a few conditions. A common vision condition that causes blurry vision up close is called hyperopia, or farsightedness. Farsightedness is typically the result of a flat cornea or short eyeball, which causes light to focus indirectly on the retina.Request an Appointment
