Optometry FAQ: Your Top Questions Answered

What is astigmatism?

Astigmatism is a common vision condition that causes blurred vision secondary to an irregular shape of the cornea, or an irregularity of the lens inside the eye. These irregularities prohibit light from focusing properly on the retina. As a result, vision becomes blurred at all distances.

Will wearing glasses make my eyes dependent on them?

No, contrary to popular belief, wearing the proper eyeglasses prescribed for you helps you to see more clearly and comfortably. Therefore, what may have been considered clear and comfortable prior to  spectacle wear may now feel uncomfortable.

Will eye vitamins prevent macular degeneration?

There is no scientific evidence that proves that by taking vitamin supplements it will PREVENT macular degeneration; however, studies do prove vitamins can slow down the progression of the vision threatening disease.

Will reading in dim light hurt my eyes?

No, reading in dim light will not cause any permanent vision damage or loss; however, it can cause eyestrain and ocular fatigue.

What is a cataract?

A cataract is a clouding of the naturally clear lens inside of the eye which causes blurry or distorted vison. Cataracts are most commonly due to the lens of the eye absorbing ultraviolet radiation as we age.

6. Can I wear contact lenses if I have astigmatism?

There are many types of soft and hard contact lenses available now that can correct astigmatism. Advances in technology and the manufacturing of contact lenses has progressed and in most cases, a contact lens can be prescribed to correct varying magnitudes of astigmatism. Ask your optometrist  about contact lenses today!

7. What is a floater?

A floater is when the vitreous gel inside of your eye creates a shadow on the retina and appears as a small translucent gray/black spot in your vision that typically moves with eye movement. Most of the time they are benign, however, sudden onset of floaters should be evaluated by your eye care professional right away due to their association with retinal tears or detachments.
