The Answer to Nearsightedness Isn’t Far Away

Nearsighted individuals have problems seeing well at a distance and are forced to wear glasses or contact lenses. The nearsighted eye is usually longer than a normal eye, and its cornea may also be steeper. Therefore, when light passes through the cornea and lens, it is focused in front of the retina. This will make distant images appear blurred.

In addition to glasses or contacts, there are several surgical solutions available to correct nearly all levels of nearsightedness. The Visian ICL and laser vision correction are used most frequently. Contact Dr. Harvey if you have any questions!
