By the time most Americans reach adulthood, about half of them have vision that registers as worse than 20/20, due to refractive errors. With a refractive error, the eye is not able to bend light correctly. One of the easiest and most common ways to correct this type of error and restore vision is with prescription eyeglasses. At Eye Zone, we have provided residents of Cleveland, OH, with prescription eyeglasses for many years.
Types of Refractive Errors
Refractive errors result in some sort of distortion of vision for both children and adults alike. The most common is myopia which is the ability to see close up, but not at a distance. The next most common is hyperopia, the ability to see at a distance, but not up close. Astigmatism is another type of distortion that can occur with or without other refractive errors. Presbyopia, an age-related condition that has elements of nearsightedness and farsightedness also falls into this category. Refractive errors are also frequently corrected with contact lenses or surgery, but glasses offer an easy way to change vision quickly without having to learn to use contact lenses safely or take on the expense of surgery.
Reasons to Choose Prescription Eyeglasses
Eye health problems like dry eyes and conjunctivitis can make wearing contact lenses impossible. This is why it is always important to have a pair of glasses. Our optometrist will evaluate your condition to determine the types of prescription glasses that will benefit you the most.
