Typical Vision Problems in Asheville NC
Regular visual exams are important to ensure optimal health and to address issues with corrective prescriptions and/or lenses. In some cases, you may notice symptoms of visual problems, such as:
- Pain in your eye(s), especially if it is severe and sudden
- Blurred, hazy, and/or double vision
- Flashes or floaters
- Seeing images that look like spiderwebs, halos, rainbows, or other irregularities
- Sensitivity to light
- Pain in response to light
- Swollen, red eyes
- Itching, burning, and/or heavy discharge of the eye
- Changes in vision
- Changes in the appearance of the eye, such as white areas in the pupil or differences in the color of the iris
You (or your child) may have also suffered a trauma to the eye. Sports injuries, for example, are quite common, particularly among children, teenagers, and young adults who participate in certain activities (e.g. basketball, baseball, water sports). Workplace injuries are also common. Life and health conditions also contribute to vision problems. No one is immune.
