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.

My overall experience was excellent. I liked how I could have my pre-ops in Tucson, since there is only one Surgery Center. Joe in Tucson was wonderful. He called me back promptly and alleviated my concerns about the surgery. Overall, a great experience.

I had no idea you had such a selection of great eyewear. The optometrist helped me find the pair that fit my face, my personality and highlighted my eyes – which, I’ve been told, are one of my best features!
