Keeping Your Eyesight in Focus

In the United States, 40% of the population is nearsighted to some extent. Myopia is a progressive condition, meaning that without intervention, it can get worse as we age. Usually, the root cause of myopia is rooted in eyeball shape and occurs when your cornea is too curved, or your eyeball is too long.

What Causes Myopia?

Some research suggests that increased time spent on near focusing activities (such as long hours in front of a computer or smartphone) may be contributing to stronger myopic prescriptions. Genetics is also believed to play a role.

Types of Myopia

There are two different types of myopia:

  • High myopia is considered the more severe form of the condition and occurs when your eyeball grows longer than it should.
  • Degenerative myopia is an inherited form of myopia that progresses very quickly.

Both types make patients more likely to develop a detached retina, cataracts, and glaucoma.

Symptoms of Myopia

Usually, the most noticeable sign of myopia is blurry vision and the inability to clearly see objects that are far away. Patients with myopia can enjoy clear vision by wearing prescription glasses or contact lenses.

Some patients may also experience headaches, eye strain, or fatigue.

Diagnosis & Treatment

A comprehensive eye exam will allow us to assess your eyes for refractive errors such as myopia, and determine which course of action is best for you. There is no “right way” to treat myopia, only the right solution to meet your needs.

Eyeglasses & Contact Lenses

The least-invasive and most common way to correct myopia is by wearing prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. The lenses in your glasses or contacts will refocus how light rays enter your eyes, providing you with clear vision.

If you require prescription glasses, we have a wide variety of designer, high-end frames to compliment your unique style. To help ensure your eyes get the care and attention they need, please book an appointment today.
