Just over 50% of canadians have some form of visual impairment. If you have one of the conditions detailed below, find out if any of these procedures will be able to help you discover freedom from glasses and contacts. Because we want to help you see the world with fresh perspective.
Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a condition that means a patient can see near objects clearly but distant objects appear blurry. This happens when a person’s eyes are longer than usual, which prevents light from focusing properly on the retina and converging at a point just before.
Hyperopia, or farsightedness, is when the eye has trouble seeing nearby objects but can register distant objects more clearly. This is because a hyperopic eye is shorter than a normal-sized one, so light converges on a point after the retina and the picture is out of focus.
With astigmatism, objects at near or far distances become blurry. This is largely due to the irregular shape of the cornea—an astigmatic eye resembles a football, not a sphere. This causes light to enter the eye, but it does not focus on a single point, resulting in blurriness.
Presbyopia is an eye condition that causes people to have difficulties focusing on small details, like fine print. It commonly appears in people aged 40 and over, at an age in which the eye begins to lose elasticity. Those with presbyopia usually wear reading glasses to see small objects better.
Cataracts are the age-related clouding of the eye’s natural lens. This condition typically starts to form in people who are over the age of 40. Symptoms include difficulty seeing clearly, duller colours and difficulties driving at night-time.
Keratoconus is characterized by a cone-like shaped cornea that deflects light as it enters the eye, which causes distorted vision. Symptoms of this condition usually become evident in a person’s late teens or twenties.
