Myopia is more commonly known as nearsightedness. This condition is a refractive error and occurs when the eye does not properly focus light on the retina. The retina takes light and transmits it into signals, which is how the brain can form visual images. When this process is distorted by improper refraction, vision becomes blurry.
Patients with myopia experience the impact of their symptoms every day without proper treatment. The condition is most often diagnosed in children and can greatly affect their ability to learn in the classroom. Whether they are unable to properly view the board or cannot focus due to headaches, this condition will take its toll if treatment is not sought out. However, children are often unable to identify or properly express that they are experiencing issues with their vision. Make sure to bring your child in for a comprehensive eye exam once a year so we can detect any issues or abnormalities and begin necessary treatment.
“Dr. Morgan was extremely kind, patient, sweet and really helped out with the issues I have with my eyes. My visit was so fast and efficient. I used to be afraid of getting eye drops in my eyes, but he gave me tips to do it a lot easier. I also interacted with Dr. Raja who was equally charming and welcoming. She was beyond patient with me and gave me great advice as I took my time to select my brand-new glasses! I might have to come back soon for a second pair!”
