Eyeglasses for Vision Correction

There are a variety of vision problems that could be affecting your eyesight. In many situations, wearing vision correction lenses, such as eyeglasses or contact lenses, can be used to create the clear eyesight that you desire. An experienced optometrist in Chicago can complete an exam to determine the cause of the vision loss. Then, a personalized treatment plan can be designed to help you enjoy improved vision.

Why Do You Need to Wear Glasses?

The lenses on the eyeglasses are designed with a curved shape, helping to bend the light rays that come into your eyes. When someone has perfect vision, the light moves in through the eye and hits the retina, located in the back of the eye. When the precise direction of the light is pointed onto the retina, it means that the object can be viewed correctly. But, if there are any irregularities with the way the eye focuses or the light hits the retina, then it can cause vision problems.

If you are nearsighted, then it means that the light comes in to focus in front of the retina. As a result, you can’t see objects that are in the distance. If you are farsighted, then it means that the light rays focus behind the retina. As a result, you have a hard time seeing objects that are nearby. Astigmatism is another eye condition that changes your vision. With astigmatism, there is an irregular curvature of the eye, which moves the focal point within the eye.

All of these eye conditions can be corrected with eyeglasses. The curve of the glass will be adjusted to manage the way the light is directed to the retina. This unique shape of the eyeglass lenses is known as the prescription.

Vision Changing with Age

People of all ages may need to wear eyeglasses. Even aging adults who didn’t use vision correction lenses in their youth will often need eyeglasses in the later years of life. Age causes the eye to lose flexibility, which makes it harder to focus on close objects, such as words on a page. This condition is inevitable can can’t be prevented with lifestyle changes or visual habits. But, glasses can be used to correct the vision problems.
