What are the Symptoms?
If the eye is too long for the refractive power of the cornea and lens, the image produced will be focused in front of the retina. Consequently, the person will be able to see close objects clearly, but distant images will be blurred. Light rays bend more than they should, so the focused image lies in front of the retina.
What is Myopia?
Myopia is the technical term for short sightedness.
The optician’s prescriptions will show a minus sign before the number called ‘Sphere’ (eg -2.00D). The larger the number, the more shortsighted the eye and the further in front of the retina the image will fall.
What Treatments are available?
The treatment options for myopia depends on a variety of factors including your age, your prescription and your requirements. Common treatments include LASIK, LASEK, Refractive Lens Exchange and Implantable Contact Lenses.Book a consultation
