Having Vision Problems?

Some vision problems, such as amblyopia or glaucoma, have no warning signs and can cause permanent vision loss if left untreated. During an eye exam, Dr. Eugenio can detect problems early and prescribe proper treatments to delay or prevent vision loss. 


 

One in three adults over 40 has a vision problem or is at risk of:

  • Cataract - a clouding of the eye's lens
  • Glaucoma - a disease of the optic nerve
  • Macular Degeneration - a loss of central vision
  • Presbyopia - a progressive condition that makes reading and doing close-up work increasingly difficult

Look for these common warning signs:

  • Impaired vision at night, especially while driving, caused by the effects of bright light
  • Difficulty reading and doing close-up work
  • White or cloudy spot in the lens of the eye (instead of black, the pupil appears milky or white)
  • Problems with glare from lamps or the sun
  • Frequent changes in your eyeglass prescription
  • Trouble seeing things to your side
  • Changes in the way you see color
  • Double vision or halos around lights

One in four children has a vision problem or is at risk of:

  • Amblyopia - lazy eye
  • Ametropia - refractive error
  • Strabismus - crossed/wandering eyes

Look for these common warning signs:

  • Squinting, closing/covering one eye
  • Holding a book close to the face
  • Losing his/her place while reading
  • Excessive clumsiness
  • Using a finger while reading
  • Tilting the head to one side
  • Performing below potential
  • Short attention span or frequent daydreaming
  • Rubbing eyes repeatedly

If someone in your family is experiencing any of the warning signs of vision problems, they may need a comprehensive eye exam.
