Nearsightedness, clinically referred to as Myopia is the most common issue with vision requiring correction. In recent years, this error of the eye has become more prevalent.
Facts about Nearsightedness
A recent study by the National Eye Institute shows that Nearsightedness (Myopia) has increased from 25% of the population in the United States to 41.6 percent for ages 12 to 54.
Cause of Nearsightedness
Although the reason for the increase in patients suffering from nearsighted vision is unknown, many experts feel that genetics, and increased fatigue plays a big role.
Extended near vision tasks such as starring at a computer screen or tablet for long period of times also plays a big role in causing fatigue.
Does Lasik Surgery Fix Nearsighted Vision?
Patients have reported excellent results after their Lasik surgery with our sought after surgeon, Dr. Chebil.
The Lasik procedure uses lasers to correct not only nearsightedness, but also farsighted vision and/or astigmatism.
How does Lasik Work?
During Lasik surgery, a thin flap in the cornea is created; the surgeon folds back the flap and remove certain corneal tissue underneath the flap via laser.
Although lasers are an advanced technique, the experience of the surgeon you choose is very important.
