Here at the office of Dr. Glenn Roter, our eye care experts are here to help you through any eye issue you might be experiencing. One of the most common issues that patients visit Dr. Roter with is blurry vision. Spring Valley’s Dr. Roter is the best place to go if you are in need of treatment for your blurry vision symptoms. Blurry vision is most often caused by refractive errors, such as nearsightedness and farsightedness. Nearsightedness is a condition in which you are able to see objects that are close to you without a problem, but objects at a distance may appear blurry or distorted. Nearsightedness typically develops during childhood or adolescence, but it can occur later in life as well. Nearsightedness can also occur in varying degrees. For example, someone with a slight case of nearsightedness may be able to see objects that are yards away clearly, but someone with a more advanced case may not even be able to see an object that is inches away clearly. If you are having trouble seeing objects at a distance from you, or if you are experiencing blurry vision in Spring Valley in general, you should schedule an appointment with Dr. Roter as soon as possible for a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Roter can easily confirm a diagnosis of nearsightedness after an exam, and fortunately it can easily be treated with the use of prescription eyeglasses, contact lenses, or even surgical methods like LASIK.
Farsightedness is essentially the opposite of nearsightedness. It is characterized by poor close-up vision, with clearer distance vision. It also typically develops during childhood or the teenaged years, and tends to run in families. It also can be confirmed with an eye exam, and treated with the use of contact lenses or eyeglasses.
