Explaining Myopia, Hyperopia & Astigmatism

From close-up or far away, it’s clear to see that most people have at least one distance at which the picture isn’t quite clear. Working with your eye doctor to decide the best treatment, be it laser vision correction or a retro pair of Buddy Holly glasses, will keep everything in your field of vision crisp.


Why is it that some of us can’t see the page in front of us, yet other must squint to make out speed limit signs as we zoom by? This video offers an explanation of the science behind how the eye turns light into pictures, and why that picture is sometimes blurry. Understanding how your eyes work can be helpful and reassuring when selecting an ocular treatment option, and this explanatory video is an easy supplement to a talk with your eye doctor about your vision concerns.
