Eyeglasses correct refractive errors, that affect your ability to see clearly. During the Lifelong Vision Partnership exam, Dr. Emmert-Buck will measure your glasses or contact prescription to determine your best vision with glasses or contact lenses.
The most common visual or refractive errors are:
- Nearsightedness (myopia) is a condition where objects up-close are in focus, while objects far away appear blurry.
- Farsightedness (hyperopia) is a common type of refractive error where distant objects may be seen more clearly than objects that are nearby.
- Astigmatism results when the curvature of the eye is oblong and can cause images to appear blurry and stretched out.
At Capstone Vision, we can correct refractive errors through procedures such as LASIK or ASA.
