Life with Myopia: Coping Strategies and Daily Eye Care
Navigating life with myopia, commonly known as short-sighted vision, can present its challenges. At NewVision Clinics in Melbourne, we understand the intricacies of this prevalent eye condition and are dedicated to providing you with the best care and treatment options available.
Myopia or short-sightedness, is a condition where near objects are seen clearly, but distant objects appear blurred. This blurring results from the eyeball being slightly elongated or the cornea having too steep a curve. As a result, light rays focus in front of the retina rather than directly on it.
Recognising the Signs of Short-Sightedness
The initial signs of short-sightedness often surface during the school years. If you find yourself or your child struggling to read street signs, squinting at the television or experiencing frequent headaches and eye fatigue, it might be time to consult an eye specialist. Recognising these symptoms early can pave the way for timely intervention and optimal eye health.
Short Sightedness Treatment Options at NewVision Clinics
At NewVision Clinics, we offer different myopia treatments tailored to address short-sighted:
- Glasses and Contact Lenses: These are the most traditional and common solutions, designed to refocus light rays directly onto the retina.
- Laser Eye Surgery: A more permanent solution, this procedure reshapes the cornea using an Excimer laser, ensuring light rays are focused directly onto the retina.
- LASIK and PRK Surgery: LASIK is a popular, painless procedure chosen by most of our patients. PRK, on the other hand, was one of the pioneering treatments for myopia and astigmatism and has evolved significantly over the years.
Post-Myopia Treatment Care
Following laser eye surgery for myopia treatment, most patients return to their regular routines within 48 hours, often reporting an immediate enhancement in vision clarity. We understand that the cost of treatment can be a concern, which is why we offer a variety of treatment packages to ensure that quality eye care is accessible to all.
