A visual defect is an abnormality of vision that can affect the quality of the image perceived by the eye. There can be several types of visual impairments, such as myopia, which is a condition where the eye is too long so anything you try to see from a distance appears blurry. Hyperopia, which is a visual impairment where the eye is too short (this is why close objects appear less sharp). Astigmatism, which is an irregularity in the cornea of the eye, causing blurred vision at all distances. Presbyopia, which is a visual defect that appears with age. It makes it difficult to read small print or to see things up close in general.
It is crucial to consult an ophthalmologist if you notice changes affecting your vision or if you have difficulty carrying out your daily activities correctly. Surgical treatment or implant grafting can often correct visual defects.
Visual impairment complicates your daily life. Your activities and your health are affected by disorders which can of course cause discomfort but also potential complications in your eye. To improve vision and avoid these potential complications, you must contact an ophthalmologist who can provide you with lasting solutions to help you see better. Vision disorders can interfere with daily activities, hobbies and, more generally, affect your quality of life: driving can become dangerous and loss of reflexes can be caused by vision disorders.
They can also increase the risk of falls, accidents in everyday life. Thus, certain visual defects such as cataracts can cause permanent damage to your sight if they are not treated quickly.
