Nearsightedness

Nearsightedness or Myopia

Myopia is the counterpart to Hyperopia; where Hyperopic patients have difficulty seeing objects up close, (reading, sewing, etc). Myopic patients have difficulty seeing objects from a distance (television, street signs, etc.). This is caused by an abnormally long ocular axis, in which light rays come into focus in front of the retina. Blurry vision, eye strain and headaches are commonly associated with this refractive error, if left untreated.

Treatment:

  • Prescription glasses
  • Contact lenses
  • Laser vision correction with IntraLase
  • Custom cornea
