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?
Diagnosis is done via an Ophthalmologist who would do an eye test for checking your vision. He/ she may also take a few reading tests too.
HOW IS MYOPIA TREATED?
Treatment involves use of optical glasses or contact lenses. People affected can also consider a refractive surgery.
DID YOU KNOW?
There is also the possibility of controlling myopia by using bifocals, progressive lenses and gas permeable contact lenses for children - thus reducing further damage.
