Eye Test and Prescription

In Visionlive your opticians in Albox we can determine what visual deficiency your eye may have.

  • Myopia (short-sightedness) is refractive defect that the image plane is formed in front of the retina and is corrected with negative lenses to compensate it.
  • Farsightedness is when the focus of the image is localized behind the retina and is corrected with positive lenses.
  • Astigmatism. This defect is caused when the image is decomposed on two levels, one in front of the other and outside the retina, for which cylindrical lenses are used.
  • Presbyopia. This usually appears in your 40’s, when the muscles needed for Reading lose elasticity making it so that it can’t accommodate sufficiently to focus on close objects. This visual defect is compensated with positive lenses.
  • Prisms. On occasion our eyes can be affected by a misalignment that can produce blurry vision and even double vision, for which we can provide lenses with prismatic compensation in your lenses.
