Many people at different stages of their lives experience vision problems. Vision also changes with age.
Blurred vision or an inability to focus sight on objects may occur in the following cases:

   • Myopia (nearsightedness)
   • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
   • Astigmatism
   • Presbyopia

These common vision problems can be corrected with LASIK surgery.
Redness of the eye
Almost anyone has or will experience redness of the eyes. As a general rule, it is temporary and should not cause concern. It can be caused by:

   – Fatigue
   – Allergic reactions
   – Wearing contact lenses longer than the recommended period
   – Improper care of lenses
   – Improperly chosen lenses
   – Sensitivity to the material from which lenses are made, or to a solution

If your eyes are red and you feel pain, or are experiencing visual disturbances you should immediately consult an ophthalmologist. Dryness of the eyes
A layer of liquid naturally supports the surface of the eye. In heated or air-conditioned rooms, during prolonged work of the computer, or under the influence of smoke, dust or wind this balance can be disrupted. This can lead to dehydration of contact lenses and eye, and the feeling of dryness and irritation.

Allergic reactions

The eyes are the "easy target" for allergens and substances that irritate the mucous membranes. Like the skin, they are subject to their impact and are very sensitive to them.

Allergic eye disease is also known as allergic conjunctivitis is a reaction to allergens in the room and outside, such as pollen, mold, dust mites, pet hair and skin. They penetrate into the eyes and cause inflammation of the mucous membrane of the eye - tissues that line inside of the eyelids, preserving the eyelids and keeping the eyeball moist. Thankfully allergic eye disease is not contagious.

Other irritants such as dirt, smoke, chlorine, etc., and even viruses and bacteria can increase the effect of allergic eye disease or cause irritation symptoms similar to allergies even in people who are not prone to allergies. Some medicines and cosmetics can also cause eye allergy symptoms.

Symptoms of allergic eye disease

If your eyes are sensitive to allergens and other irritating agents, the body produces a special substance called histamine, which causes the development of inflammation. Common symptoms of allergic eye disease are the result of inflammation.

This is redness, itching, burning, tearing, swollen eyes and a feeling of "sand in the eyes." These symptoms may be accompanied by a runny/itchy nose, sneezing, coughing and headaches. Also it is possible that you will temporarily have blurred vision or a sense of loss, disability , and fatigue.
