Myopia is a common eye condition in which faraway objects appear blurry, but nearby objects are clear. Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is very common but treatable. The most common signs and symptoms of Myopia include blurry vision, headache, squinting and many more.
HOW IS MYOPIA DIAGNOSED?
An Ophthalmologist usually diagnoses Myopia by conducting a complete eye examination.
HOW IS MYOPIA TREATED?
Treatment for myopia is possible by wearing corrective glasses or even lenses. In some cases, refractive surgery may help, especially with very young people. LASIK is another treatment option available along with PRK, which include minute surgical procedures.
