About 40 percent of the population in our country are diagnosed with nearsightedness, or myopia, making it one of the most diagnosed refractive vision impairments. It is a refractive error that causes struggles with or a lack of ability to see items or focal points that are not close to the eye. This means that far-away things or images may appear fuzzy, or the patient may not be able to make them out altogether. If you are myopic, there are several choices to address it and help enhance your far vision. At his office in Bloomington, IN, R. Daniel Grossman, M.D. and his team diagnose and treat refractive errors, like myopia, and provide appropriate solutions that are best for your lifestyle. Contact The Eye Center of Southern Indiana to receive a refractive exam if you are experiencing differences in your sight or are having difficulty seeing from a distance.
How Is Myopia Treated?
Diagnosing myopia is truly simple and is typically done with a routine vision acuity evaluation. The majority of people have seen this test, which usually involves reading letters ranging in size on an eye chart. Further familiar evaluations that are often performed use a phoropter (also called a refractor) and a retinoscope (a tiny light) to test how your retinas refract light. Myopia can be treated through prescribed eyeglasses or contacts to enhance vision. Often, patients choose to use both glasses and contacts to suit their unique routines. Many people may also be candidates for laser vision correction surgery for long-term results.
"My husband had a chalazion removed from his lower eye lid, and we had a great experience! Everyone was so friendly, from the receptionist out front to Dr. Andrew Huck! It was a quick process, and Dr. Huck walked us through each step of the procedure. He made us feel so comfortable and cared for. Thank you for all you guys do!!"- E.W. / Yelp / Oct 06, 2021
"They are very thorough in caring for new patients. They are conscious of covid 19 protocols. The practice has both ophthalmologist as well as optometrists. In case you need eye surgery, the surgery center is on the lower level. As a new patient I appreciate what they have to offer for eye care."- M.H. / Yelp / Mar 25, 2021

"I just had my LASIK eye surgery done with Dr. Mackey at the Eye Center yesterday. I recommend it highly, and wish I had done it sooner. The staff was as sweet as can be, and I felt so comfortable the entire time. I would really like to thank Dr.Mackey, Dr Gray and Melissa for taking such good care of me. There was virtually no wait times which cut down on my nerves substantially. The procedure itself was completely painless and was over before I knew it. I’m super pleased with my experience:)"- C.E. / Yelp / Dec 04, 2015
