Myopia Effects One Out Of Every Three People

Mar 31, 2008
Myopia also known as nearsightedness is a common problem effecting more then one third the population today. Myopia makes it so that persons effected by it cannot see signs or objects far away without glasses. So what things can be done to improve this? How can we help this growing problem? There are many kinds of treatment, you are not alone, with this problem there are many studies and cases going on to find more ways to cure this problem.

First we have to identify the problem and know what signs we have evidence of. Headache is a big one, Eyestrain and Fatigue are also large signs after you try and see something off in the distance but cant make it out. Squinting causes headaches, people with Myopia tend to see objects as blurry and indistinct.

Myopia is a defect that cause the eye to be thicker from the back to front. Because of this defect it causes light rays to point in front of the retina not on the retina surface. Myopia is Hereditary and usually manifests in childhood. This can either get better with age or it can worsen causing Myopic Creep. This can be corrected however, you don't have to suffer with it. There are cases however that are either severe or pathologic. Pathologic or debilitating Myopia usually only manifests in those with elongated eyeballs.

Glasses or Contact Lens's are the typical treatment for nearsightedness. People with Myopia have a negative prescription order, and most need to wear glasses all the time. Refractive Surgery is also another option that can be done, it allows the cornea to be flattened allowing light to focus on the retina correctly. To correct mild nearsightedness surgeons will implant plastic corneal rings which alter the shape of the cornea.

Lasik's Surgery is also an option, this will correct the problem with the cornea however the person getting the surgery might still require glasses for reading. Many people see this as a benefit because they no longer need to have glasses to drive or do sports. Lasik's is a good option if you want to have freedom back in normal life and only need glasses for reading.

In orthokeratology the patient wears contact lenses that correct the cornea over time. The Cornea then retains the new shape allowing light rays to be viewed normally. Until recently there have been no medications available to people with Myopia, however in 2001 a new photosensitive drug called Vysudine, this drug allows revascularization of abnormal growth of blood cells in Pathologic Myopia. Getting this prescription can help with problems you have with Myopia. Ask your doctor about it.

En eye exam is needed to actually diagnose Myopia. It is also the leading eye problem, however with the treatments available it is slowly becoming less and less of a problem. It is recommended to get regular treatment if you have Myopia. If you suspect you have it then you should get an exam and get treated as soon as possible to prevent any future problems from occurring.
