Myopia is the medical term for nearsightedness. Nearsightedness is the condition which makes far away objects look blurry, and makes near objects look clear and in focus. Nearsightedness is a condition that is caused by an elongation in the eyeball or a curvature of the cornea. As your go-to Arlington optometry office, Heritage Eye Care is well versed in the diagnosis and treatment of nearsightedness.
Some of the symptoms of nearsightedness present themselves as blurred vision, or blurred night vision (night myopia). Nearsightedness does tend to run in families and oftentimes we see the condition growing worse in childhood or adolescence. However, with a simple eye exam we can confirm weather a patient is nearsighted or not. It’s important to know that nearsightedness is easily treated with corrective lenses. Because nearsightedness can affect people of all ages it is important to schedule yearly eye examinations with your Arlington optometry office.
