What is Myopia?
Myopia also known as near-sightedness, is a common vision condition. People with myopia can see objects up close very clearly, but have trouble focusing on objects that are at a distance.
How is Myopia Diagnosed?
A comprehensive eye exam with your eye care professional will include testing for near-sightedness.
People who are near-sighted may have difficulty in concentrating on objects in the distance.
How is Myopia Treated?
In mild cases of near-sightedness, your eyes may be able to compensate without corrective lenses. In other cases, your doctor can prescribe eyeglasses or contact lenses to correct near-sightedness. If you have any symptoms while wearing your eyeglasses or contact lenses it may mean that you need a new prescription.
Surgery is another option for correcting near-sightedness and may reduce or eliminate the need to wear glasses or contact lenses.
