There are many types of complications that can affect your vision and you should always seek medical attention if vision problems occur. Blurriness, halos, blind spots, floaters, the inability to see at certain distances and even blindness could be a sign of eye disease, aging, eye injury or other more serious conditions.
Vision changes should never be ignored, as they can get worse and sometimes lead to blindness. These changes can affect the ability to focus on objects, see fine detail and live life as you see fit. Of the five senses, vision is the most crucial to our overall health and well being.
Treatment for vision changes depends on the type of change, but choosing the right clinic that makes you feel comfortable and takes your situation serious is now more easier than ever.

Common Vision Correction Services
At Woodhams Eye Clinic, they take every eye complication serious and urgent. There are a number of eye related issues that are seen but there are a few most common.
Nearsightedness appears in 25% of the population and is corrected in eye clinics all over America. The problem is not being able to see far away and being able to see close up. This is a result of a large or elongated eyeball that causes your distance vision to blur because of light from distant objects focuses in front of the retina instead of on it. This then causes the image to appear blurry or out of focus. Treatments include LASIK or ICL surgery.
Farsightedness is another common eye condition that Woodhams Eye Clinic sees almost daily. This is an age related loss of near vision due to the hardening of the natural lens which begins to develop around age 40. The patient can see far away but not so much close up.
The third frequent eye disorder is astigmatism; this is the overall inability of the eye to focus clearly at any distance because of uneven curvatures of the cornea. This often occurs in conjunction with nearsightedness and farsightedness and treatments can be as simple as getting contacts or a pair of prescription glasses to LASIK eye surgery.
Ready To See 20/20?
At Woodhams Eye Clinic they offer many services and procedures to get their patients seeing clearly again, but if contacts or glasses just aren’t for you, LASIK eye surgery can be something to look into.
Woodhams uses the latest vision correction procedures including the newest iFS laser to create the flap needed to perform the vision correction step. LASIK reshapes the clear front part of the eye, the cornea and allows light traveling through it to focus properly on the retina at the back of the eye.
This procedure does not involve the use of a surgical blade and has less of a likelihood to create complications that traditional LASIK can. The procedure takes less than five minutes per eye and is performed under local anesthesia. Ninety eight percent of Woodhams Eye Clinic patients see 20/20 or better one week after their procedure. LASIK is safe, quick and can get you back to seeing the life you love perfectly again.
