Myopia LASIK is for Nearsighted Patients

Myopia, often referred to as nearsightedness, is a common eye condition where the light that comes in does not directly focus on the retina but in front of it. This causes the image that one sees when looking at a distant object to be out of focus, but in focus when looking at a close object.  People who have myopia often describe blurry distance vision, but good near vision. However, when patients have a high myopia prescription, even near vision can be affected.


Eye care professionals most commonly correct myopia with a prescription of corrective lenses, such as glasses or contact lenses. It may also be corrected by laser vision correction. Whether you have a low, medium, or high myopia prescription there is a laser vision correction procedure for you.
