Common Vision Problems

Do you have trouble seeing things? Do you find yourself squinting or getting major headaches regularly? If something doesn’t seem right with your vision, you may have one or more problems that need some type of corrective treatment.

There are many signs that you may need to visit an eye doctor to receive treatment for your vision. These symptoms may include:

  • Trouble seeing things that are near to you
  • Trouble seeing things that are far from you
  • Seeing black spots in your eyes
  • Double Vision
  • Haziness or blurriness
  • Having to squint to see things
  • Major headaches frequently
  • Eye strain

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to visit an eye doctor to help determine the cause of your symptoms and help you find the best possible treatment. Vision problems are often debilitating and you don’t have to face these symptoms alone. An experienced eye doctor can help you find a treatment plan that is right for you. Some of the common causes of eye symptoms may include:

  • Nearsightedness (Difficulty focusing on objects that are far away)
  • Farsightedness (Difficulty focusing on objects that are nearby)
  • Astigmatism (Difficulty processing light evenly, leaving things looking distorted)
  • Cataracts (Difficulty seeing due to cloudiness in the lens of the eye)
  • Presbyopia (Difficulty focusing on nearby objects and usually occurs with age)
  • Glaucoma (Difficulty seeing and loss of peripheral vision due to optic nerve damage)

Regardless of the cause of your vision problems, there is a treatment option that is right for you.
