How well do you see your computer, tablet, or smartphone screen right now? If you have trouble with deciphering the print, or you are frustrated when reading a book or magazine, or even a menu at a restaurant, you are probably farsighted. This is a refractive issue that is marked by blurry vision up close, and which can be corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses from us Sullivans Island SC eye care at 3D Optometry.
Farsightedness, like nearsightedness and astigmatism, is related to the way that light travels between your cornea and your retina. If you are seeing well at all distances, it is a good indication that your cornea is sending light such that it reaches the center of your retina. With farsightedness, though, that light goes off its path, landing near the back of the retina. The reason this occurs is that your cornea becomes improperly curved. Farsightedness typically progresses and becomes worse as you age. That’s the bad news. The good news is that our Sullivans Island SC eye care will continue to update your corrective lens prescription to account for changes in how you’re seeing up close. The diagnosis is a simple matter of conducting the standard tests of a yearly comprehensive eye exam. Farsightedness is often inherited, from one or both parents. The effects of diabetes on your eyes may also be responsible, as can eye tumors, but that is far more rare. Our Sullivans Island SC eye care will prescribe your glasses or contacts, and our optical department will make them for you right here, for your convenience.
There is no good reason to struggle with your vision. Not when our Sullivans Island SC eye care has the easy solution for you. All you need to do is schedule an eye exam at our office. Call us right now, while you’re thinking about it.
