Vision problems

 
 

Keep a close eye on your eyes

Vision problems usually are caused by an anomaly in the cornea, the crystalline lens or the retina. Headache, fatigue, difficulty driving or difficulty reading a newspaper are warning signs.
 
Vision problems are called “ametropia” or refractive errors: myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia.
 
In the interest of prevention, you should consult an ophthalmologist, an eye specialist who will conduct an examination and screen for pathologies. Do not wait until illness develops.  Eye checkups should be performed regularly from earliest childhood.

Myopie
You cannot clearly see the paintings on the wall at the Beaubourg museum. You have to bring your Smartphone up to your nose to read your SMS… you could be MYOPIC.
 
39% of French people are in the same boat. Don’t worry. Studies have shown that myopic people often have higher IQs.
 
This type of ametropia is very often genetic. An eyeball that is too long by just a few millimeters; a crystalline lens or a cornea with not enough curvature and that painting that is hung too high is difficult for you to appreciate because it is blurred. You cannot really see it because the image is, simply, formed on the front of your retina.
 
Eyeglasses no longer are prosthetics: technology and design have changed that perception. What’s more, innovations in lens making have shattered the “coke bottle” image. If we tell you about unifocal, concave lenses, with appropriate coating, you will reply that all you want is perfect vision, maximum comfort and an enhanced self-image. Today, not being myopic could deprive you of the pleasure of wearing eyeglasses. Come and see us. You will be a happy myopic…
 
Hypermetropie
You love to take your watch apart and you do it regularly. You are determined to learn embroidery or you are crazy about model-making. You try but you can’t see to do it or you are constantly making an effort to accommodate your sight, which only makes your head ache… you could be HYPEROPIC.
 
Great! Only about 9% of you fall into this category. In short, you are a rarity.
 
This ametropia is caused by an eyeball that is too short or a cornea that is too flat. This causes the image to form on the back of your retina and forces you to make accommodations that tire you and that you could do without. Did you know that babies are born hyperopic? Not to worry. Small eyeballs at birth develop with age and become normal at adolescence.
 
Eyeglasses no longer are prosthetics: technology and design have changed that perception. What’s more, innovations in lens making have shattered the “four-eyes” image. Today, not being hyperopic could deprive you of the pleasure of wearing eyeglasses. If we tell you about unifocal, convex lenses with appropriate coating, you will reply that all you want is perfect vision, maximum comfort and an enhanced self-image. Come and see us. You will be a happy hyperopic…
 
 
Astigmatisme
Headaches, tingling, blurred vision or inaccurate persist far and near ? You may be ASTIGMATIC..
 
Contrary to popular belief, astigmatic eye does not see distorted. According the different directions of gaze, the sharpness (or blurring) is not uniform. For example, the eye can see perfectly fine net the vertical bar of a letter E and see completely blur the horizontal bars, or vice versa.
 
Watch out ! You can be astigmatic and myopic or hyperopic at the same time. It’s your fate, like 15% of the French population.
 
Put simply, with this type of ametropia, the surface of the cornea is not round like a football. An astigmatic eyeball looks more like a rugby ball because it is shaped like an ellipse.

If we tell you about unifocal, toric lenses with appropriate coating, you will reply that all you want is perfect vision, maximum comfort and an enhanced self-image. Today, not being astigmatic could deprive you of the pleasure of wearing eyeglasses. Come and see us. You will be a happy astigmatic…

 

Presbytie
No more long evenings by the fire with your favorite comic book. Better not look for a number in a telephone book from before the Millennium. Don’t go fly-fishing because you no longer will be able to see where you cast your line. You can’t do it, even if you keep your eye on the fly…you could be PRESBYOPIC.
 
You admit that you no longer are 20 years old, because you are at least 40 or 50, if you’re one of the lucky ones. It’s no good lying to your friends and family: in France, 30% of the population is far-sighted like you. Nobody wants to get old and that word PRESBYOPIC is so ugly. If you also are myopic and astigmatic since childhood, you will need a suitcase to carry all those glasses. Good news for certain myopics: they won’t need glasses for a certain period, since myopia cancels the effect of presbyopia.
 
Aging is a generalized process. It affects the entire body, including the eyes. The crystalline lens, too, loses its elasticity, which leads to a very punishing loss of near vision. Moreover, like aging, presbyopia increases over the years.
 
Eyeglasses no longer are prosthetics: technology and design have changed that perception. What’s more, innovations in lens making have shattered the “four-eyes” image. Today, not being presbyopic could deprive you of the pleasure of wearing eyeglasses. If we tell you about progressive or mid-distance lenses with appropriate coating, you will reply that all you want is perfect vision, maximum comfort and an enhanced self-image. Come and see us. You will be a happy presbyopic…
