Eyeglasses


Eye refractive error is the technical term for a need for eyeglasses (or contacts) to correct vision. This is the best way to see clearly and your ophthalmologist can evaluate your needs and recommend the best eyeglasses for you. You might be eligible for contacts or LASIK.

What is it like when two eyes have different refractive error?

eye Contact lens Glasses Anisometropia Amblyopia Brain Refractive surgery Eye Refractive error Ophthalmology

It depends


If the difference is small, the brain can usually fuse the two images, especially with the help of glasses. When it becomes very large (anisometropia), it becomes more difficult to fuse and can result in amblyopia. Contact lenses tend to be better tolerated in people with large differences than glasses.

What is the best method to determine the refractive error of eyes?

Answered by:
Dr. Tim Conrad
Ophthalmology

Get an eye exam


Your eye doctor can determine this during an eye exam. There are no do-it-yourself ways to determine an accurate refractive error.

Vision changes


Intracranial hypertension can cause visual deficits due to swelling of the optic discs at the back of your eyes.

Sometimes


The focus of the eye is greatly affected by the lens - diseases such as cataract and presbyopia can dramatically affect the focus. Sometimes corneal scarring may induce astigmatism and keratoconous may cause irregular astigmatism requiring contact lenses to treat.

Yes


a myopic or hyperopic refractive shift can occur if there is anything that changes the shape of the cornea, affects the position of the lens (such as ciliary body issues), or changes the retina distance from the lens (i.e. swelling).
