The most common reason people wear eyeglasses is to correct refractive errors. A refractive error means the eye has trouble focusing light, which leaves you with a blurry image. The most common refractive errors are:
Nearsightedness, also known as myopia, means that you can clearly see objects that are close by, but objects that are far away appear blurry.
Farsightedness, also known as hyperopia, means you can clearly see objects that are far away, while objects that are close by appear blurry.
Astigmatism is a problem with the way the eye focuses light onto the retina because of the eye’s shape. Astigmatism causes objects at all distances to appear blurry or distorted.
Presbyopia is a normal vision change that usually begins around age 40. It affects your ability to focus on things that are close up, especially text. Presbyopia is usually the reason people get reading glasses.
Eyeglasses can easily correct these refractive errors, allowing you to see clearly.
