Problems with the optical imaging system of the eye are the main reason why optometrists have
patients. When your vision is blurry, you know something is wrong and you know something can be done
about it. Luckily, these refractive vision problems are rather easy to correct. Traditional vision
correction takes the form of eyeglasses, but
contact lenses and
laser eye surgery are quickly becoming
more popular. Unfortunately, many eye diseases do not produce the same warning signs. In fact, the vast
majority of eye problems are completely asymptomatic in the early stages, during a critical period where
early detection leads to early treatment which is essential to controlling many eye diseases and
preventing permanent vision loss.
Whether you are visiting this site out of curiosity or for educational purposes, we hope that you will
find what you are looking for. The human eye is a truly remarkable organ and should be treated with due
care and attention. Visit your optometrist regularly.
