What is Myopia?
Myopia, usually known as nearsightedness, is one of the most common vision issues, occurring when the eye is too long or the cornea is too steep, causing the image to focus in front of the retina. These circumstances cause your eyes to see nearby objects clearly, but far away objects are blurry. Other symptoms of uncorrected myopia can include headaches, eyestrain, and squinting.
Myopia usually starts in childhood, and becomes worse until adulthood. Our optometrists will diagnose myopia and provide you and your family with management strategies to control it.
