What Is Myopia?
A little more than 130 million people in the United States are affected by nearsightedness (myopia), making it one of the most prevalent refractive errors. It is a vision impairment that leads to problems with or a lack of ability to see items or focal points that are distant from the eye. This means that far-away items or images may be fuzzy or you may be unable to perceive them altogether.
Keratoconus causes nearsighted vision and also causes astigmatism, a common imperfection of the eye’s curvature that results in blurry vision. You could be diagnosed with severe, moderate, or slight myopia. People who have myopia can generally see very well close up but have difficulty seeing distant things, such as street signs while driving, presentation screens at work or in the classroom, or movie screens.
If you have myopia, we have many options to correct it and help clear up your vision. At her practice in San Antonio, TX, optometrist Dr. Victoria Perez offers diagnoses of sight impairments, like nearsightedness, and offers suitable corrective options that can accommodate your day-to-day activities. Call Texas State Optical Bandera to arrange a refractive exam if you are experiencing shifts in your vision or are experiencing problems seeing far-away items.
How Is Myopia Treated?
Patients who find out they have myopia have a few effective treatment options available based on their prescription and usual routine. Dr. Perez usually prescribes glasses or contact lenses to sharpen vision. Some people choose to use a combination of both to accommodate their personal needs. Texas State Optical Bandera also prescribes specialty lenses for keratoconus, the cause of myopia. Orthokeratology uses myopia-control contact lenses, which are hard, gas-permeable custom-fit lenses, to treat moderate to high levels of myopia and temporarily reshape the cornea. We also recommend MiSight® disposable one-day soft lenses, which are effective in slowing the progression of myopia, altering how light enters and retracts in the eye.
Certain patients could also be candidates for LASIK or PRK surgery for long-lasting results. Tell Dr. Perez if you are interested in laser vision correction, and she will let you know whether you are a good candidate.
Texas State Optical Bandera Reviews
This office is absolutely amazing. I am giving them a five star rating. I had some difficulty navigating between my medical benefit and my vision benefit and they were able to explain in simple terms which one would work the best financially.it worked out great. Everybody in the office is so kind and professional, and I just had an overall great experience I use to hate going to the eye doctor, and that is no longer the case.
Friendly staff, knowledgeable and very helpful.
