Vision Correction

Learn about common vision conditions, how contact lenses can help correct your vision, and much more.

Answers and insights about vision issues and correction

As we describe in How Do We See?, eye anatomy is incredibly complex. When everything works together properly, you see clearly. Unfortunately, clear vision isn’t guaranteed.

Whether it’s the result of genetics, the aging process, or some other vision issue, you may require spectacles or contact lenses to see clearly. Short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism, and presbyopia are among the most common vision problems. To better understand these vision conditions and more, see our collection of articles below.
