Refractive Errors

Refractive errors refer to vision problems that keep you from seeing clearly. The good news is that during an eye exam, Dr. Turk can determine if eyeglasses or contact lenses would help you see better. Chances are, that with some assistance from Advanced Eyecare, you could be seeing the world much more clearly.

The three most common refractive errors are:

  • Farsightedness (hyperopia) causes objects nearby to appear blurry.
  • Nearsightedness (myopia) causes far-away objects to appear blurry.
  • Astigmatism can make far-away and nearby objects hard to see, blurry and distorted.

While annual eye exams are highly recommended, if you are experiencing any of the symptoms below, you may be experiencing refractive errors and you should call our office today to schedule an eye exam: blurry vision, squinting, double vision, hazy vision, eye strain, trouble focusing or seeing a glare around bright lights.
