Symptoms of Myopia

If you have myopia, you might experience a variety of symptoms. Some of these symptoms include:

•             Eyestrain

•             Frequent headaches

•             Having to squint to see more clearly

•             Frequent eye rubbing

Treatment for Myopia

Myopia treatment always begins with a thorough examination. Our optometrist will evaluate the current condition of your eyes with various tests. The results will help us determine which treatment may be necessary for you.

Treatment options for nearsightedness typically include contact lenses and eyeglasses. Our eye doctor may ask you to wear those accessories to slow down the progression of myopia. Additional prescriptions may also be required and will depend on how your eyes respond to treatment.

If you want to eliminate contact lenses or glasses, we can discuss certain surgical procedures with you. For example, LASIK surgery may correct permanently correct your vision so you don’t have to wear contacts or eyeglasses.
