If you have not had a complete eye exam in over a year, you will want to come to our vision practice, Yandell Eyecare, for a complete vision exam. Our eye doctor Morristown, Dr. James Allen Yandell, will check your eyes to make sure you do not have any eye diseases and disorders, or any refractive errors such as farsightedness.
Hyperopia is a refractive error that is commonly known as farsightedness. This refractive error can easily be corrected with contact lenses or eyeglasses. When a person is farsighted, it means that the person can clearly see objects that are at a distance, but objects that are close up may appear blurry. Depending on the amount of farsightedness that you have, you may not be able to focus your eyes correctly to allow you to see things close up, and you may need to wear glasses or contact lenses. Farsightedness is a refractive error that is generally present at birth. If you have parents or siblings who are farsighted, you are also likely to have this condition since this refractive error tends to run in families. If our doctor determines that you have this refractive error, a lens prescription will be written for you to have this vision problem easily corrected. The opposite refractive error to farsightedness is nearsightedness. When patients are nearsighted, they are able to see items clearly which are close up, however, they have problems with distance vision. Astigmatism is another type of refractive error which can occur by itself, or in combination with nearsightedness or farsightedness. Astigmatism can now also be corrected with contact lenses as well as with eyeglasses. Any of these refractive errors can also be corrected with laser eye surgery. Our eye doctor Morristown will be happy to discuss the different treatment options with you.
