Refractive Errors

Refractive errors are when a person's cornea, or even his eye, is improperly shaped. As a result, the light comes through differently than it would through a normal eye. This results in him having difficulty seeing things at a certain distance or at all distances. At Locerne Optical, we are here to help the people of Wixom, MI, see their best.

Myopia is when a person can see close-up objects fine but far away objects are blurry. It can happen for different reasons, however. A few include genetics, spending too much time in front of the computer or being up close in front of the TV for too long, or potentially an eye injury.


People who have this are able to see things clearly that are further away and have difficulty seeing things up close are considered farsighted.


Astigmatism, unlike myopia or hyperopia, can cause a person to have poor vision at all distances. It may also prevent a patient from being able to wear normal contacts so specialty contact lenses may be needed.   

Diagnosis and Treatment

All of these conditions can be diagnosed with an eye exam conducted by an eye doctor near you. Treatment may include eyeglasses, contact lenses, and potentially more.

Lasik surgery is another option to consider. An optometrist near you on our optometry team can help you determine if you are a good candidate. We can also help you prepare for the surgery and help you to recover from your procedure properly once it is finished.
