Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a condition in which a person can see near objects more clearly than distant objects. Myopia is usually the result of a larger than normal eye. In the myopic eye, light rays from distant objects focus before they reach the retina. The result is blurred vision. A tendency for myopia may be inherited; frequent or prolonged near work may influence its progression. It is typically detected in school-age children,... View More
Astigmatism is a condition in which objects, both near and distant, appear blurred. The cornea and lens of the eye should be spherical(round). When one or both are curved more steeply in one meridian than another, the optics take on a toric shape (like a rugby ball). This uneven curvature prevents light rays entering the eye from focusing to a single point on the retina, blurring the visual image. Astigmatism may also occur in combination... View More
Hyperopia, also known as farsightedness, is a condition in which a person can see distant objects more clearly than near objects. Hyperopia usually occurs when an eyeball is smaller than normal.
When an eyeball is small, light rays from near objects do not focus properly on the retina at the back of the eye. The result is blurred vision.It may be inherited.
Signs and SymptomsBlurred vision, inability to see near objects clearly

Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), also referred to as Digital Eye Strain, is defined as a “complex of eye and vision problems related to near work which are experienced during or related to computer use.”
CVS vary but may include the following:
Eyestrain, which may be characterized as uncomfortable, painful, and irritable visionHeadaches, which most often occur toward the front of the head and toward the middle or end of the day.Blurred and/or double visionDry and irritated eyesSlow... View More
