What is Myopia?

Slightly more than 40% of the population in America is diagnosed with myopia (nearsightedness), which means it is one of the most widespread refractive vision impairments. Nearsightedness is a refractive error that results in difficulty in or a lack of ability to make out things or images that are distant from the eye. Therefore, far-away objects or focal points may be hazy, or the patient may lack the ability to perceive them altogether.

An individual could develop extreme, moderate, or mild nearsightedness. Those who are nearsighted can usually see very well with near vision but have difficulty seeing distant objects, for example, traffic signs, presentation screens at the office or in the classroom, or movie screens.

For those who have myopia, we have plenty of choices available to address it and help restore your vision. At their practice in Phoenix, AZ, optometrists Dr. Neha Amin LaCorte and Dr. Mary Hardy make diagnoses of sight impairments, like myopia, and offer solutions that are best for your lifestyle. Contact Advanced Vision & Achievement Center to schedule an eye exam if you have noticed changes in your sight or are having trouble seeing from a distance.

What are the Symptoms of myopia?

In the majority of cases, the most pronounced indication of nearsightedness is unclear vision that occurs when trying to focus on objects from a distance. A lot of people can also have other symptoms that stem from constant squinting or eye strain. Eye strain, also known as eye fatigue or asthenopia, could cause aching or dry eyes. Asthenopia might also lead to light sensitivity or soreness in the neck and shoulder muscles. Occasionally, people who already wear prescription lenses for myopia can notice these symptoms. They are a good indication that your lens prescription needs to be updated, and you need to plan an eye exam before long.

I absolutely love Dr. Hardy! Highly recommend

I really like my doctor Mary. She's personable and explains things well. I feel like they had some better designer stuff last visit but I still left with glasses I was happy with.
