What are Refractive Errors?

In a healthy human eye, light enters through the cornea or clear front window of the eye and the cornea refracts (bends) the light so that it passes through the pupil and then the eye's natural crystalline lens. In an eye with perfect vision, the light rays focus on the retina and a clear picture is transmitted to the brain through the optic nerve. A refractive error, such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism, or presbyopia (age-related farsightedness), happens when light is not bending and focusing on the back of the retina to produce a clear picture. Refractive errors are common and can affect patients of all ages.
