Common vision problems to see an eye doctor for

The eyes are a magnificent part of your body. They're complex with various parts that need to function specifically in order to see clearly. But, if something is off, it can cause vision issues, including blurred vision. Your eye length, the curve of your cornea, and your lens can change the way you see. The good news is an eye doctor, through examination, can identify problems, and provide potential solutions.

There are several common eye problems that an eye doctor treats. Refractive errors are the most common vision issue. This includes nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hypetopia), astigmatism, and presbyopia.

What are refractive errors?

The light needs to focus on the retina in order for you to have clear vision. When the shape isn't perfect, it causes blurry vision. This is because the light is refracted (bent) by the cornea and the lens. The shape impacts where the light rays focus. For example, when your eye is too short, it results in farsightedness, and if it's too long, you'll have nearsightedness. Think about it this way; because the cornea and the lens refract light, if it's not refracted correctly, it causes an error in the way you see.

This results in several common conditions that are treated by an eye doctor:

  • Nearsightedness: When you can see clearly up close, but things far away are blurry.
  • Farsightedness: When you can see objects far away with more clarity than those up close.
  • Astigmatism: When you have blurry vision, which is caused by the eye not being perfectly round.
  • Presbyophia: This is a condition caused by aging. It becomes hard to focus clearly on things that are up close.

Blurry vision is the most common complaint when it comes to refractive errors. However, there can be other symptoms that occur including: double vision, squinting, headaches, haziness, eye straining, or glare or halos around bright lights. The good news is an eye doctor can treat refractive errors and help you see with clarity.

How can an eye doctor treat refractive errors?

It's important to see an eye doctor for any changes in your vision. Getting in regularly, even when you don't suspect you have an issue can help prevent potential problems from occuring. Eye doctors can catch things early on, sometimes before you even know there is a problem.

With refractive errors, you may notice that things appear to be blurry. However, it's possible you won't even know it, especially if the change comes on slowly. But, when you see the eye doctor, they can do a thorough examination and determine if there is an issue and offer possible solutions.

The good news is, refractive errors can be corrected quite easily. Eyeglasses or contact lenses can be prescribed, or you can opt for surgery to give you clear vision again. There are various technologies available, including LASIK, Visian ICL, Clear Lens Exchange, and Reading Inlays. If you're wondering which is the right option for you, talk to an eye doctor and discuss the possibilities. With so many options, there's no reason to let refractive errors keep you from seeing with clarity.

There is an array of eye conditions to see an eye doctor for and one of the best ways to keep your eyes healthy is to get comprehensive eye exams. By investing in your eye health, you can catch problems early and learn about possible solutions. Refractive errors are common, and a lot is known about them, which means eye doctors can provide great options for correcting the issue(s).

If you're ready to see clearly again and you're looking for an eye doctor in Draper Utah, contact Cataract and LASIK Center of Utah. When it comes to vision health, we're here for you every step of the way.

When should you see an eye doctor for a black eye?

A black eye can look pretty gruesome. The soft tissue around your eyes is more transparent, which can make the bruise appear darker than it might on another area of your skin. A black eye works much like a regular bruise: the blood vessels break which causes this discoloration. However, you have to be extra careful because your eye is a very sensitive area. That's why it's important to know how to handle it correctly and when it's time to call an eye doctor.

What causes black eyes?

The typical cause of a black eye is blunt trauma. Eye injuries can occur from flying debris when you're working on a project, playing sports, tripping on a rug, etc. There are numerous causes that can lead you to experience a blow to the eye. That's why eye doctors recommend wearing the proper eye protection for sports and other activities that could put your eyes in danger. Talk with your eye doctor for suggestions regarding which eye protection you should use for your particular activity.

While a blunt impact is the typical cause of a black eye, there can be other causes, including cosmetic procedures or dental work. "More serious causes of black eyes include cellulitis (a serious infection around the eyes)." Also, a skull fracture can cause both eyes to look bruised.

How do you treat black eyes?

The good news is, typically black eyes are not a big cause for concern. You may be able to treat it at home with ice. Apply ice as soon as possible after the injury. Use a bag of frozen peas or other cold compress. Wrap a cloth around it to keep your skin protected. You'll want to hold the compress on for about 10 minutes per session, and apply it about "every 1-2 hours." Make sure you allow at least 10 minutes between each session though. Please stay away from the practice of placing red meat on your eye as it can increase your risk of developing an infection.

Talk with your eye doctor about other possible treatment options. You may be able to use Tylenol to reduce pain, but NOT Asprin (it is a blood thinner). Black eyes usually heal within about a 1-2 weeks.

When should you see an eye doctor or medical practitioner?

The usual signs of a black eye are swelling and discoloration (purple, blue, green, and/or yellow). The whites of your eyes may also have broken blood vessels. However, sometimes other symptoms can occur and you should be aware of them. In fact, some signs may mean a trip to an emergency room or an eye doctor is necessary.

If you black out because of the injury, experience dizziness, fainting, a persistent headache, or vomiting you should seek medical attention. Other symptoms to watch for are double vision and blurry vision, or if both eyes are affected. When both eyes are affected by the impact it may indicate a skull fracture. If you're unable to move your eyeball a certain way or at all, you need to be seen immediately. Another potential problem that can arise that would require going to the emergency room is hyphema, which is "bleeding inside the anterior part of the eye (between the back side of the cornea and the front of the iris)."

It's a good practice to make an appointment with your eye doctor anytime you have an eye injury, including a black eye. But, you especially want to make an appointment if your eye hurts, there's an open cut near your eye, or you're experiencing blurry vision or floating spots. If you're experiencing any vision changes or sensitivity to light, talk to your eye doctor as soon as possible.

When in doubt, talk to your eye care professional about any concerns you have. Take the precautions necessary to protect your eyes and your vision. If you're looking for an eye doctor in Draper Utah, contact Cataract & LASIK Center of Utah. We're invested in keeping your eyes healthy!
