Eye problems can range from mild to severe; some are chronic, while others may resolve on their own, never to appear again. The articles below will give you a basic understanding of some of these problems and their implications. Especially in the case that your eyes don’t look good, feel good or see well, you should visit your eye doctor.
The following is a short list of common eye conditions our doctors treat, such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism and presbyopia. For information about cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy please see Eye Disease Management. A more comprehensive list of eye conditions can be found in our Eye Health Library.
Please book an appointment with our Liberty Township, Eastgate & Our Doctors if you have any concerns.
Astigmatism is a very common eye condition that's easily corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses and on some occasions, surgery.
As we reach middle age, particularly after age 40, it is common to start to experience difficulty with reading and performing other tasks that require near vision. This is because with age, the lens of our eye becomes increasingly inflexible, making it harder to focus on close objects. This condition is called presbyopia and eventually it happens to some extent to everyone as they age.
