What is Nearsightedness?

Nearsightedness occurs when the eyeball becomes elongated. Most easily described as “football-shaped”, nearsightedness is usually present at birth. As a result, light entering the eye is focused in front of the retina instead of directly on it. Nearsightedness, also known as myopia, means an individual can see well up close, but has difficulty seeing objects clearly in the distance.

An adult or child with undiagnosed nearsightedness may suffer from eyestrain, headaches and eye fatigue. They also tend to squint when trying to focus on objects far away.

Nearsightedness Correction from Eye Care Group Professionals

At Eye Care Group, the options for nearsightedness correction are almost unlimited. Contact lenses or eye glasses are the two most popular choices for the correction of nearsightedness. Corrective lenses work by refocusing the light that enters the eye directly back onto the retina.

We begin with a complete eye health exam, a lens consultation, and finally, we help you choose the most stylish fashion-forward eye glasses for nearsightedness – or the right pair of contact lenses. Nearsightedness correction may just be a great excuse to add designer eyeglasses, sunglasses or colored contact lenses to your collection of fashion accessories.
