What is Myopia and How Does Myopia Impact Your Eyes and Vision?
The National Eye Institute says that as much as 41% of the population has myopia. This is a very common type of refractive error in vision. It is the most common type of vision problem. Having nearsightedness doesn’t mean you have to suffer with it. Your eyes and vision are our primary goal.
Those who have myopia have a condition in which they can see things that are up close but have trouble seeing items that are a short or long distance away. It is believed that some people have a genetic predisposition for this condition, but eye fatigue, which can occur as a result of straining the eyes with computer use can also cause this condition.
For more advanced care, LASIK and PRK eye surgeries may be an option. These surgeries may be able to restore normal quality of vision, reducing or eliminating the need for glasses and contact lenses. Our optometry team can talk to you more about your options for corrective eye surgery.
