Nearsightedness, or myopia, is a refractive defect of the eye that occurs when the curvature of the cornea is too steep or the eyeball is too long. With nearsightedness, images are focused in the vitreous inside the eye instead of directly on the retina at the back of the eye. When light focuses in front of the retina, near objects are seen clearly, but distant objects are blurred.

Myopia can be treated by flattening the cornea with LASIK, PRK or LASEK. If you are not a candidate for a surgical procedure, our staff can assist you with other options.
