COMMON EYE PROBLEMS

The eyes are complex organs, with many parts that must work together to produce clear vision. Many common eye problems can be treated with early detection. While some issues might come with evident symptoms, others may be painless and you will see little change until the disease is more advanced.

That is why getting a comprehensive eye exam every year is so important. Even those without the need for corrective lenses aren’t free from these common eye problems. Contact us today if you experience any symptoms associated with the issues below. At Looking Glass Optical, your vision health is our priority.

Just behind the iris, the colored part of the eye is a lens. It’s called the crystalline lens because it is so clear. A cataract is a loss of the clearness of that lens.
