Vision problems

Eyesight is arguably the most important of the five senses. As a matter of fact, we mostly rely on what we see to guide our actions, and the brain devotes more space to processing and storing visual information than all other senses combined.

Vision problems

Before we can perceive it, an image makes a complex and fascinating journey in our body: it enters the eye where it gets turned upside down, then it is shattered in thousands of pieces and reaches the brain, which processes it and eventually turns it the right way up.

Our eyes are like the cameras of the brain. The different parts of the eye (cornea, pupil, crystalline lens, and retina) work together to adjust and send the images to the optic nerve, a sort of “electrical cable” that carries visual signals to the brain, where they are processed into the image we see.

A healthy eye is called emmetropic: this means that it has sharply focused vision at all distances. Any alteration in the curvature of the crystalline lens modifies how light is refracted, leading to vision problems such as :

Myopia blurred distance vision and clear near vision
Hyperopia blurred near vision and clear distance vision at a young age
Astigmatismo blurred or distorted vision at all distances
Presbiopia difficulty in focusing on near objects
