Nearsightedness or Myopia
The eye doctors at Northwest Indiana Eye & Laser Center offer diagnosis and treatment of nearsightedness or myopia for patients of all ages. Nearsightedness or myopia is a common refractive vision problem that results most often from the axial length of the eye being too long and/or the curvature of the Cornea being too steep. This results in light and images being focused in front of the Retina. A patient who has nearsightedness or myopia typically has difficulty seeing things at distance with this type of common refractive eye problem.
At Northwest Indiana Eye & Laser Center, our eye doctors can correct vision problems caused by nearsightedness or myopia with eyeglasses, contact lenses and laser eye surgery such as LASIK and if you have a cataract, by implanting a lens implant.
