Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a condition in which you can see close objects clearly, but far away objects like TV screens or whiteboards are hard to see. It’s the opposite of hyperopia.
Myopia happens when:
- The eyeball is too long
- The cornea (front of eye) is too curved
How Do You Treat Myopia?
Myopia can be easily treated, and eyecarecenter can help give you an affordable treatment that’s right for you. The three options include:
- Glasses. With your prescription from one of our eye doctors, you choose glasses right at your appointment from our wide line of popular brands.
- Contacts. If you prefer the contacts route, we can get you trials for most prescriptions right in the store.
- Laser surgery. In an outpatient procedure, an eye surgeon can use a laser to remove some of the tissue and modify your eye’s shape.
What Causes Myopia?
More than a third of the U.S. population experiences myopia, and it’s becoming more and more common, perhaps because we’re reading on lighted screens like computers and phones so much more.
