Nearsightedness, also known as myopia, is a common vision problem affecting millions of people all over the world. Luckily, nearsightedness is one of the most common vision problems that are easily correctable through LASIK vision correction surgery, meaning that these millions of people previously diagnosed with myopia can see more clearly without glasses or contacts at all.
Some patients with severe myopia, or abnormally thin corneas may not be candidates for LASIK, however, with the continually advancing technology in LASIK, more and more previously "poor" candidates for LASIK are now becoming eligible for the surgery. If the procedure is not right for you because of the degree of severity of your myopia, there are other alternative. Implantable contact lenses are one of these option that many otherwise myopic patients are exploring as an alternative. It is not permanent, and as a result, will require careful monitoring from the surgeon performing the procedure.
If you are myopic and interested in what surgical options are available to you for your vision correction, book a consultation with a LASIK eye surgeon. He or she may be able to apply any one of the incredible vision correction procedure to your condition, and help you join the distinct club of being one of the millions that are seeing more clearly without the use of glasses or contacts.
