Nearsightedness is also called myopia. It is a very common vision condition in which a person cannot see objects at a distant. A person who is nearsighted can usually see objects that are close, such as reading. The optometrists at Allegany Optical Hagerstown can easily correct nearsightedness with glasses or contact lenses, depending on the patients’ preference. Sometimes a person will only need glasses for specific reasons, such as driving or needed to see a presentation from across the room.
Farsightedness is also called hyperopia. It is the exact opposite of nearsightedness: a person can see things at a distant, but not up close, like when reading. Farsightedness can also be easily corrected with glasses or contacts, and like nearsightedness a person may only have to wear glasses for specific reasons, such as reading or working on the computer.
