One of the most common vision problems is hyperopia, more commonly known as farsightedness. More than 14 million adults in the U.S. are affected by this refractive error, which causes short-range vision problems, while distant-range vision remains clear. Today, your eye care providers at Elite Vision Care discuss this condition in detail.
Glaucoma refers to a group of eye diseases that can cause blindness by damaging the optic nerve. Your expert eye doctor from Elite Vision Care recommends undergoing regular eye exams because glaucoma tends to be asymptomatic in the early stages, making it nearly impossible to detect without the help of an optometrist.

Unlike ordinary lenses, aspheric lenses have a complex front surface that gradually changes in curvature. Elite Vision Care, your eye care expert, explains further below:
What happens when you have glaucoma? This eye disease damages the optic nerve, which can lead to irreversible blindness if left untreated. Sometimes called “the silent thief of sight” because it’s typically asymptomatic in the early stages, glaucoma affects roughly three million people in the U.S.

They are gaining more popularity than ever because of their advanced and highly porous design, which allows people to use them for an extended period. A recent study found that over 45 million people in the country use contact lenses, whether for vision correction or cosmetic purposes. [Read more…]
As you age, you may experience eyesight changes, particularly once you reach age 40.

Age-related eye diseases like related macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma can affect eyesight and even lead to vision loss.
