Vision Problems

Nearsightedness

Nearsightedness, known as myopia, makes it difficult to see objects far away. It is caused when the light entering the eye is focused in front of the retina instead of on it. This typically occurs when the eyeball is elongated, which is common in children who are growing quickly. Changes in your child’s vision may happen often, so it is important for them to continue to visit the eye doctor regularly to update their prescriptions for their glasses or contacts.

Astigmatism

Both nearsightedness and farsightedness can be treated with corrective lenses such as glasses or contact lenses. After a thorough examination with a vision screening, we will be able to find the correct prescription so that you or your child will be able to see clearly.

Presbyopia

We are pleased to offer multifocal contact lenses. We will do everything we can to ensure they fit properly.

Multifocal contact lenses are not your grandparents’ bifocals. They are designed to help people who have trouble with their vision, both close up and far away. This condition is called presbyopia.

Vision Correction

Here at Annandale EyeCare, we make it our goal to give you the best vision possible.

To do this, we offer comprehensive eye examinations along with vision tests. We use both wall and reading eye charts to describe your vision using a fraction scale. Normal vision is 20/20 vision. If your vision is not normal, we will make recommendations to ensure that you can see as clearly as possible. We may offer you the option of eyeglasses or contact lenses. We may offer surgery or other options, if necessary, to give you the vision you deserve.

We look forward to discussing your options with you so that you can enjoy clear vision in the most comfortable way possible. Common vision issues include myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia. Factors such as lifestyle, environment, work setting, and age can all determine which solution is best for you.

If you have any questions about correct vision and how we can help, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (703) 941-4111.
