Myopia

April 23, 2015

A condition where items that are farther away appear blurry.

Myopia is fairly common in children. The problem is usually detected between the ages of 8 and 12 and nearly always before the age of 20. Often the severity of problem increases as the body grows rapidly, eventually leveling off in adulthood.

Difficulty seeing distant objects is the main symptom of myopia. A teacher is often the first to notice that a child is squinting to see the blackboard or is having trouble seeing faraway objects.

What our customers are saying:

Office staff is always great. Dr. explained clearly the procedure and set good expectations. Was quick, easy, and the next day I feel like nothing had ever been done to my eye. No pain.

Kurt V. is a great manager. He’s personable, knowledgeable and helpful. I had a defect in my new glasses and he replaced them no questions asked. What great service!
