SIGNS YOU ARE
Near vision tends to be clear, but distant objects appear blurred.
Myopia tends to affect people who do a lot of close-up activity such as sewing or reading; have a family history of short-sightedness; were born prematurely or have other eye-related health conditions. As a myopic, you might experience frequent headaches and halos around lights.
Images will appear blurred or stretched. Symptoms will include blurred distant vision, eyestrain, headaches and squinting.
If you suffer from astigmatism you'll find driving at night a struggle.
WHAT IS A
People who can’t focus properly on objects in the distance are usually suffering from short-sightedness or astigmatism. In both cases, the eye experiences what’s called a ‘refractive error’. Instead of bending directly onto the retina, rays focus in front of it, making distant objects appear blurred.
While both conditions are refractive errors and have similar problems, there are some distinct differences. If you suspect you may have a problem, then book an appointment for an eye examination.
