does eye shape affect vision

Does Eye Shape Affects Vision?

Eye shapes play a crucial role in vision.

The cornea and crystalline lens focus light in the eye. Light passes through the vitreous humor, a clear gel inside the eye, and strikes the retina at the back. The retina’s rods and cones pick up light and send a clean image to the optic nerve and brain’s visual cortex if everything is working properly. The cornea and lens concentrate light based on the eye’s shape and the distance from the lens to the retina. These shapes produce myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.

Myopia or Nearsightedness

Myopia, the most common vision problem across the world, is caused by abnormal eye shape. Generally, myopic eyes are longer than normal—the distance from the cornea to the retina is greater than in a normal eye. This causes light to converge in focus too soon, before hitting the retina, so by the time it hits the retina it is blurry. Nearsighted patients can usually see close objects clearly but have poor distance vision.

Hyperopia or Farsightedness

Hyperopia is the opposite of myopia—the eye is too short. The point where light would converge in focus in the eye is behind the cornea, so the light does not have enough distance to travel. This prevents farsighted patients from clearly focusing on close objects.

Astigmatism vis

While hyperopia and myopia are caused by overall eye shapes, astigmatism is caused by the shape of the cornea itself. Normal corneas are curved equally in all directions, like a section of the outside of a ball. Astigmatic corneas are curved irregularly, like the surface of a football. This prevents light in the eye from focusing at a single point and causes distorted vision.

LASIK and Eye Shapes

LASIK treats these problems not by reshaping the eye, but rather by reshaping the cornea to make up for the shape of the eye. For myopic eyes, the cornea is flattened, causing light to converge at the cornea instead of before it. LASIK for hyperopia does the opposite—the curvature of the cornea is increased to focus light closer. For astigmatism, the curve is simply evened out to provide a clear focus.

The shape of your eyes determines how good your vision is naturally. Fortunately, LASIK can correct irregularly shaped eyes.

Powering Up with Bright Vision: Erika Miyata

Visual struggles for a person always on-the-go will certainly take its toll down the line.

After enduring the lows of having blurry vision for over a decade, Erika Miyata, a Filipino-Japanese Jill of all trades, decided she needed her best version and that’s only possible with a bright eyesight.

She finally decided it’s time for LASIK.

“Ever since bata ako, malabo mata ko and I was really using contact lens for a really long time. Sobrang hirap playing for varsity before and until I got to the point I started working already,” shared Erika, an Operations Manager.

“That’s why thankful ako I was able to have LASIK still kahit matagal ako nag-contact lens, nakaya pa rin with advanced technology. Everything’s much clearer and easier now!”

You can choose to start living your life with much ease by having LASIK, too!For inquiries, questions, and appointments, call our Patient Care Lines:

Lasik and Sports

Lasik and Sports : Winning Combination

If you use glasses or contacts, sports can seem like a distant memory.

It is highly suggested that you use eye protection in addition to glasses or contacts when participating in team sports such as basketball. Individual sports such as running and tennis may not necessarily require protective eyewear, but throughout a marathon or a long tennis match, your glasses or contacts may begin to feel like lead weights, or your contacts may itch and burn.

Do you want a better option? Consider a different combination: LASIK and sports.

Focus on what Counts

If you’re new to a sport, glasses or contacts may appear unimportant. However, many sportsmen grow frustrated at the need to continually carry protective lenses or make sure they don’t lose contact just before a big game. If you lose contact or damage your protective eyewear, your field performance will be affected. You won’t realize your full potential, regardless of your talent. Contacts or glasses are holding you back.

Not to mention the cost of purchasing new prescription sunglasses and protective eyewear. Basketball, badminton, baseball, kayaking, and mountain riding may require two or three pairs of glasses. Corrective glasses for the house, gym, sun, and water might be expensive.

Improved Performance

LASIK patients can attain 20/10 eyesight, which benefits athletes. Clear vision aids basketball, diving, football, and table tennis players. Not all gifted athletes have “normal” sight. LASIK and sports are now linked. Laser vision correction from Shinagawa helps many athletes.

PBA players June Mar Fajardo, and Alex Cabagnot, and volleyball players Mika Reyes and Denise Lazaro have had successful procedures.

LASIK reshapes your eye’s outer layer to direct light onto your cornea. This will help you see 20/20—sometimes even 20/10. Shinagawa surgeons can improve your vision in 10 minutes using the latest excimer laser technology. You’ll see a big change the next day. You can play, skate, or run again in a few weeks. LASIK or not, contact sports require eye protection.

Don’t let glasses or contacts hold you back. LASIK and sports are a winning combination that can help you maximize performance.
