A refractive problem occurs when an eye does not bend light correctly, causing vision to blur. Nearsightedness is a very common refractive disorder. Farsightedness, astigmatism, or presbyopia are other common refractive problems. Refractive problems can generally be corrected with contact lenses or prescription eyeglasses. However, refractive surgery is now also a popular solution to these common eye problems.
Our eye surgeon in Brooklyn encourages patients with blurred vision to always come in for a comprehensive eye exam, especially if they have not had one very recently, and do not definitively know the cause of the problem. Blurred vision can also be a symptom of a more serious eye disorder, and should never be left undiagnosed. However, if it is determined that your blurred vision is being caused by a common refractive problem, often refractive surgery can solve the problem once and for all. Any patient desiring refractive surgery will need to go through a thorough exam to make sure that he or she is a good candidates for the surgery. Generally patients receiving refractive surgery should be over age 18 and not have any other eye problems. Today laser surgery is able to treat many different eye problems, including those that were previously considered untreatable.
