Just like your body, your eyes and vision change over time. Changes in the eye’s focusing ability for new vision is called presbyopia. Myopia, or near-sightedness is a condition where a person sees objects closest to them clearly, but their long-distance vision is blurry. The School of Optometry & Vision Science conduct studies for healthy eyes, and the eye conditions of Myopia and Presbyopia. View our current studies.
