Vision Disorders - Definition

Vision disorders are conditions caused by the eye's inability to properly focus light rays. Three major types of vision disorder are hyperopia (pronounced HY-puh-ROH-pee-uh), or farsightedness; myopia (pronounced my-OH-pee-a) or nearsightedness; and astigmatism, which causes the eye to form a blurred image of an object.
