Glasses Q & A

What kind of vision problems require eyeglasses?

Refractive errors in the eye are the most common cause of vision problems, and most people suffering from such vision problems require eyeglasses to help correct their vision. The four most common refractive problems include:

Nearsightedness

If you’re nearsighted, objects that are far away will appear blurry while objects up close will appear clear.

Farsightedness

Conversely, if you’re farsighted, objects that are far away will appear clear, while objects that are close will appear blurry.

Astigmatism

People with astigmatism have trouble focusing light onto their retinas. This causes things to appear blurry or stretched.

Presbyopia

Presbyopia is a natural vision change that occurs as you age. Most people will experience this condition at some point in their lives.

The right kind of lens can even correct for multiple types of vision problems, so a comprehensive eye exam is important for determining what kind of glasses you’ll need.

What kind of eyeglasses do I need?

Generally, your eyeglasses prescription will depend on the type of vision issue you have. The type of lenses you choose depends on your lifestyle, preferences, and the exact nature of your vision issues.

For example, bifocal or trifocal lenses might be necessary if you’re both nearsighted and farsighted. These lenses have multiple prescription “areas” within them, allowing you to adjust your sight to view both distances.

Other types of lenses include those built from tougher materials, like polycarbonate lenses, which are useful for people who play sports or have more physical work that could damage glass or other types of plastic lenses.

Dr. Vargas will discuss your vision and lifestyle needs with you during your comprehensive eye exam to help you choose the type of glasses that are right for you.
