Refractive vision defects and how we treat them in our Ophthalmology Clinic in Lanzarote

Possibly one of the most known and common refractive defects is myopia. When a patient is nearsighted, cannot see distant objects well or perceive them as blurry.

We tell you a little more about this pathology, which we frequently attend in our Ophthalmological Clinic in Lanzarote and what are the solutions we offer in Omega Vision.

Myopia is because the image is focused in front of the retina, when it is right to focus on the retina. The cause of this refractive vision problem is associated with a long eyeball which does not allow light rays to focus on the point where they should.

The main symptom associated with this refractive defect is the blurred vision when observing distant objects. This can lead to side effects such as: Eye fatigue and its consequent headaches

In Omega Vision you will find a solution to your myopia or that of your little one. After a custom study of your vision, we will offer you a adapted treatment plan to your reality

  • Use of glasses corrective
  • Operations Laser to definitively correct myopia, in cases where this is the recommended method
  • Intraocular lenses phakic
  • It is not necessarily hereditary (This is an important factor, but it is not the only one). For example: if 2 parents are nearsighted, their child is more likely to be, but it is not an exact mathematical rule. 
  • Recent studies reveal that the excessive use of screens (tablets, smartphones), as well as the little time children spend playing outdoors, are increasing cases of myopia in children.

This refractive defect, which also leads to lack of visual acuity, It is another of the pathologies that we see every day in our Ophthalmological Clinic in Lanzarote.

This anomaly of the eye, can make our patients with Astigmatism, see the slightly deformed images and blurry while they can see the outline of objects unclear.

This refractive defect is due to a irregularity in the curvature of the cornea, which causes the light to project at various points in the retina

Patients can feel headaches constants due to the visual fatigue caused by Astigmatism. In addition: they can squint to see better.

Of course. And in Omega Vision you will find it. Our team of ophthalmologists in Lanzarote will propose the best solution for you.
