About Myopia

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.
