Myopia


Specialty of Ophthalmology

Myopia, also known as near-sightedness, is an ocular abnormality. A dysfunction in the retina causes difficulty with long range vision. Although close range vision is normal, obstacles at a distance are blurred. There are many degrees of myopia: for example, high myopia exceeds 6.5 dioptres. The most common treatments are glasses and contact lenses, but increasingly, patients are opting for laser surgery, the application of which depends on the characteristics of each eye. The procedure consists of modifying the surface of the cornea, correcting the dioptre affected. For the most severe myopia, a procedure to implant intraocular lenses, whose function is the same as the eyes’ natural lenses, is an option.
