Refractive surgery id the cure for refractive error. A refractive error is when the shape of your eye does not bend light correctly, causing blurred vision. The common refractive disorders are: Myopia – also known as nearsightedness, myopia is when distant objects appear blurry. The condition is inherited and usually discovered in childhood. As a person ages, myopia can progress, requiring a stronger prescription to correct vision. Hyperopia – also known as farsightedness, hyperopia is when close objects appear blurry. Hyperopia is most common in children. It can improve as a person ages. Presbyopia – presbyopia is the aging of the lens in the eye, which can make reading more difficult. This usually occurs in people over the age of 40. Astigmatism is an irregular curvature on the cornea (front surface of the eye) which causes a person’s vision to be blurred at all distances. If you experience blurred vision, difficulty reading or crossing of the eyes, it may mean you have a refractive disorder. Contact your ophthalmologist for a complete eye exam. Refractive disorders are commonly treated with corrective lenses, whether it be eyeglasses or contact lenses. Some refractive disorders may also be corrected by refractive surgery.
