When light isn’t focused properly, it causes blurry vision. Glasses, contacts, or surgery can usually correct refractive errors, which include:
- myopia (nearsightedness), which is when faraway objects look blurry
- hyperopia (farsightedness), which is when close-up objects look blurry
- astigmatism, which can result in blurry vision because the cornea is not perfectly shaped to direct light into the eye
- presbyopia, which is farsightedness that’s caused by the loss of elasticity of the eye’s lens due to aging
If you suspect you have refractive errors, seek guidance from your eye doctor. Annual eye exams are the best way to care for your eye health.
