You may have already heard about this extremely popular procedure called LASIK. Millions of Americans have received LASIK vision correction and are loving the results, and you can too!

20/20 vision is a term used to express normal visual acuity (the clarity or sharpness of vision) measured at a distance of 20 feet. If you have 20/20 vision, you can see clearly at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance. If you have 20/100 vision, it means that you must be as close as 20 feet to see what a person with normal vision can see at 100 feet.

20/20 does not necessarily mean perfect vision. 20/20 vision only indicates the sharpness or clarity of vision at a distance. There are other important vision skills, including peripheral awareness or side vision, eye coordination, depth perception, focusing ability and color vision that contribute to your overall visual ability.

Some people can see well at a distance, but are unable to bring nearer objects into focus. This condition can be caused by hyperopia (farsightedness) or presbyopia (loss of focusing ability). Others can see items that are close, but cannot see those far away. This condition may be caused by myopia (nearsightedness).

A comprehensive eye examination at Long Island Eye Surgical Care, P.C. in Suffolk County including Brentwood and Port Jefferson can diagnose those causes, if any, that are affecting your ability to see well. In most cases, we can prescribe glasses, contact lenses, correct surgery or a vision therapy program that will help improve your vision.
