The eye, an organ so important that we sometimes take it for granted; this organ can compare to a highly efficient, self-adjusting “camera” that transmits impulses to the brain. Once in our brain these impulses will be transform into information and images, the information and images allow us to see how beautiful our world really is. Unfortunately sometimes problems can occur with our vision, to prevent these vision problems.
The city of Los Algodones is establishing new clinics, clinics that will offer you optical treatments.
Your vision – probably the most important of all our senses. As we mention, through one’ eye(s) we are able to interpret all the beautiful things the world has to offers. Thanks to the possession of two eyes, provides us with stereoscopic vision, the term is most often used when referring to the perception of depth and 3-dimensional structure obtained on the basis of visual information.
Can you imagine the tremendous trauma caused by the loss of an eye? The loss of sight can make the person handicap, because of the strong communication channel between sight and our mind.
Common Vision Problems
The most common vision problems one can have is Refraction, this can divide into 4 primary errors: astigmatism, farsightedness, nearsightedness and presbyopia.
Astigmatism – in this condition, your eyes are unable to focus light evenly onto the retina, causing images to appear blurry and stretched out.
Farsightedness – in this condition, distant objects may be seen more clearly than objects that are near.
Nearsightedness – in this condition, objects up close appear clearly, while objects far away appear blurry
Presbyopia – this is an age-related condition in which the ability to focus up close objects becomes more difficult. As one gets older, our eyes lenses can no longer change their shape to allow the eye to focus objects clearly.
Vision changes as one gets older, similar to many other areas in our body. Other vision problems one can suffer include: blurred vision, burning eyes, eye pain, itchy eyes, puffy eyes, red (irritated eyes), spots (either flashes and/or floaters).
