Amblyopia

This is a story of a mother who had close observation on her kid of two and half years old. She was observing my child behavior that was not normal with other kids at the same age. He used to take toys, pictures and other things very closer to the face when he plays. He used to see photos on the phone with very closer distance to the face. My child was so quiet and very silent. She made and appointment with her family doctor regarding this observation. For further assessment they came to the Vision Care regarding the eye testing. End of the examination found that my child has a refractive error (Myopia) and due to that his vision is very poor. As they suggested now my child is wearing a spectacle and enjoying with paying and all the things. Now he does not take things very much closer to the face. They said that if the vision correction not done in early stage, it will be difficulty to improve when he go old. They said it can leads to Amblyopia condition. Even though my child starts to wear spectacle with less age, I’m happy to say that I could save my child vision.

Theory

Amblyopia is a condition in which the vision of the one eye is less than the other even after best correction. This can happen due to various reason including refractive errors.

People with nearsighted (Myopia), farsighted (Hyeropia) or a combination of both or astigmatism can cause for the Amblyopia. As a result of that images are appear overall blurred from one or both eyes.

The amblyopia can correct by spectacle and contact lenses. If the correction delayed, Amblyopia can develop within the period. Vision Therapy treatment plan will be required if the amblyopia condition develop in your eyes.

Kids

I was having difficulty to copy details from the black board into my notebook in the class room. I used to copy from my friend’s book at the time. I thought it was normal that everyone see like that. My class teacher was observing that I was coping from my friend’s book rather copy from the blackboard. One day my teacher asked me to inform this to my mother and get eyes checked in a good place. Since my mother used to get eye examination from Vision Care, my mother took me into Vision Care and they did eye examination on me. I realized at that time my right eye had blurred vision than left eye. That happened due to refractive error called as Myopia it seems and According to the results I purchased spectacle from Vision Care. Still to improve my unbalanced vision they started Vision Therapy on my eyes. Now I’m having comfortable clear vision in both eyes with spectacles and after vision therapy treatment.

Myopia is a refractive error condition where the parallel light rays are coming from infinity to focus in front of the retina when accommodation at rest.
The main reason for the myopia is abnormal axial length increasing of the eye ball and secondary to the increase curvature of the cornea. Refracted light rays do not focus as a point form on the retina due to those reasons. As a result of it near objects appear clear but distance object appear overall blurred.
Myopia can easily correct by spectacle or contact lenses and if the correction delayed amblyopia condition can develop. Vision Therapy treatment plan will be required if the amblyopia condition develop due to the myopia.

Youth

In the university time period, I had to study a lot regarding the subject matter and all the things. I used to wear spectacle since 5-6 years from now. I used to get my spectacle from a local optical shop but it was keep on changing time to time of my visits and that particular practitioner also did not explain properly why it does change. They said me that it just an astigmatism condition and I was not happy with my corrected vision. Therefore I went to Vision Care to get my new pair of glass as well as to get some idea about the problem of my eyes. They examined me and additionally did a corneal topography test for me due to understanding of some changers on my eyes. Totally it took around half an hour to complete and finally came to know that it was Keratoconus in both eyes. It seems that it is progressing and I could lose my vision permanently. Then they referred me for ophthalmological examination and thank you Vision Care for saving my sight.

Astigmatism is a refractive error condition where the parallel light rays are coming from infinity to focus two focal line instead of one focal point on the retina when accommodation at rest.
The main reason for the Astigmatism is irregular shape of corneal surface of the eye. Refracted light rays in the cornea do not focus as a point form on the retina due to the irregular surface. As a result of it images are appear stretched vertically, horizontally or in oblique direction.
Astigmatism can easily correct by spectacle or contact lenses and if the correction delayed amblyopia condition can develop. Vision Therapy treatment plan will be required if the amblyopia condition develop due to the Astigmatism.

Adults

I’m a farmer and we used to cultivate vegetables in the village. Actually I did not know that I had a vision problem in my left eye since long time. I just came to know that when I closed my one eye due to the itching. Then I thought that something has fallen to my eyes and thought to wipe out it. I washed my eyes immediately. But it was remaining still and I told this problem with my neighbor .They asked me to go for Vision Care optical shop to get eye examination because they also had eye checkup from Vision Care and wearing spectacles. I had the eye examination in one of the Vision Care Branch and there I came to know that I had an unequal vision problem in both eyes. Now I’m comfortable with my vision through the new spectacle which I got from Vision Care.

Anisometropia is a condition in which the refractive error in both eye is not equal and the power difference is more than two diopters.
People with nearsighted (Myopia), farsighted (Hyeropia) or a combination of both or astigmatism can cause for the anisometropia. As a result of that images are appear overall blurred, stretched vertically, horizontally or in oblique direction.
The anisometropia can correct by spectacle and contact lenses. The spectacle lenses thickness got equal due to the refractive error difference in both eye. If the correction delayed, Amblyopia can develop within the period. Vision Therapy treatment plan will be required if the amblyopia condition develop in anisometropia.

Midlife

I used to do my business work without having any issue since beginning. I was not comfortable on my near and intermediate work on my habitual working distance since 3 – 4 months. I had to my calculator or mobile phone, newspapers or accounts books little away from the habitual distance. This became an issue for my day to day business work. I just talk with one of my friend with asking that where to go for best eye examination and genuine spectacles. According to his advice I came to Vision Care for my eye checkup. After the examination I came to know that it is just due to aging process which called as Presbyopia (Hathilis Andiriya). According to their advice I bought a Multi-focal spectacle from them and that gives me natural vision what I saw early.

Presbyopia is a physiological condition in which the natural lens (crystalline lens) adjustment ability of power reduces due to the loosing strength of anatomical structures in aging process.
The main reason for the Presbyopia is aging process. As a result of it distance objects appear clear but our eyes do not focus clearly to the near object. Uncorrected presbyopia patient feel to put reading materials little away from them with increasing the hand length distance. Few of presbyopia people feel to squeeze eyes to get clear vision.
Presbyopia can easily correct by spectacle or contact lenses. Single vision reading glass, bifocal spectacle or progressive additional lens spectacle (multifocal or verifocal lenses) can correct. Multifocal contact lenses also another option of correcting presbyopia. If the correction delayed the addition correction get increased comparatively to the up-to-the-date corrected presbyopia.

Seniors

Since I’m a civil engineer in my carrier, I’m on more field work in outside work stations where the constructions are going on. I never had any problem with my reading glasses when I read any bills or any document in the outside environment. But before one year ago, I felt some difficulties to read document at near little dim illumination in the room or in the evening. I thought it was due to less illumination. But that problem increased from day by day. One of my colleagues was wearing spectacle which purchase from Vision Care. So I discussed my problem with him and he told me to get an eye examination. End of the eye examination came to know that and I’m having Cataract in both eyes. The optometrist guided me properly to get further procedures and get consultation an ophthalmologist. Vision Care fulfills with biometry test, eye drops, Intra Ocular Lens (IOL) and all which need for the Cataract surgery and I brought from them. After the Cataract surgery again I went to purchase the spectacles. They gave me a multifocal spectacle which is more comfortable for me and I’m back to my routine work now.

Cataract is clinical condition of the natural crystalline lens in human eye in which the transparency reduce gradually and that result blurred vision for distance and near.
There are few reasons for developing cataract as aging process, UV light exposure, smoking, long term usage of several drugs such as steroids and injuries. Light rays do not travel through the lens properly due to the opacification and overall blurred vision remain same.
Cataract can correct by doing a cataract surgery which replace the opacified natural lens and put a artificial intra ocular lens (IOL). If the cataract surgery got delayed unnecessarily amblyopia condition can develop. Vision Therapy treatment plan will be required if the amblyopia condition develop.
