The Most Common Vision Problems, Health Channel

Dr. Richard Simon, Ophthalmologist with Baptist Outpatient Services, says common vision problems would be based on age and common things, like nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia.

“Those are really commonly affecting at least half of our public and even larger in certain segments. Asians, for example, particularly Chinese, there is a lot of myopia in that racial group. But, in general, glasses, contact lenses, early diagnosis, and you’ll be pretty good,” he points out.
