VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron UNEVEN VISION "Refraction" is the process by which the cornea and the eye lens bend light rays so that they may focus on the retina. Although children's eyes are usually very close in refractive power, there are cases where there may be a significant difference in the refractive power of each eye. For example, one eye may be nearsighted while the other eye is farsighted. This disparity in refractive power is referred to as "anisometropia." As divergent as the eyes' refractive power may be, the condition may go undetected because the eyes appear normal and straight. If left undetected, anisometropia may lead to amblyopia (lazy eye"), which underscores the importance of scheduling regular eye exams. During a complete eye exam, your eye doctor will not only determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, but will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health. When you need to schedule an eye exam, please contact SKOWRON EYE CARE. At Skowron Eye Care, your 20/20 vision is our mission. P.S. While people with normal vision can have up to a five percent difference in the refractive power of each eye, those with more of a difference will experience uneven vision (anisometropia).
