Acuity: visual acuity describes the sharpness of central vision, rather than the clarity of peripheral vision.
Visual Acuity: is measured using a Snellen chart, which usually has the big E on top. A reading of 20/20 means the a person with normal vision can see the smallest letters on the chart. A person with 20/40 vision means that the person can read at 20 feet what a person with normal vision can see at 40 feet. A person who can not be corrected to 20/200 vision in the better eye is considered legally blind.
Allergies of the eye: allergies occur when the body overreacts to substances in the environment. Allergies protect the body from injury by stopping airborne particles from getting into the body. Ice packs and cold compresses over your eyes help relieve allergic reactions. Artificial tears also help remove allergens from the eyes.
Amblyopia: commonly known as ‘lazy eye’, is weak vision in an eye due to failure to develop normal sight in early childhood.
Hyperopia: Also known as farsightedness. It is a condition in which the visual images come into focus behind the retina of the eye and vision is better for distance than for near objects.
Myopia: Also known as nearsightedness. A condition in which the visual images come into a focus in front of the retina of the eye resulting in poor distance.
