Poor Eye Sight is the loss of sharpness of eyesight, making objects appear hazy and out of focus. Poor Eyesight can affect both the eyes but some people experience Poor Eyesight in one eye only. The primary cause of Poor Eye Sight is refractive errors i.e. nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. The most common signs and symptoms of Poor Eyesight include blurry vision, headache, squinting and many more.

HOW IS POOR EYE SIGHT TREATED?
While a doctor normally suggests eyeglasses and contact lenses to treat Poor Eyesight, however, refractive surgery or laser surgery is a permanent form of correction for Poor Eyesight.
