MYOPIA

WHAT IS MYOPIA?

It is a visual refraction error. It is determined by hereditary factors. A myopic person sees better objects that are close, but objects farther away appear blurred.

 

SYMPTOMS

  • Blurry vision of objects that are far.
  • Need to the books close to the face to be able to read.
  • Seat on the first rows of classroom or movie theaters.
  • Headache


ANALYSIS AND TEST

It is a general examination of the eye performed by an optometrists or ophthalmologist that includes the following tests:

  • Visual acuity
  • Refraction
  • Vision of color
  • Eye muscles

 


TREATMENT

Myopia is easily compensated with the use of eyeglasses, contact lenses and laser surgery, depending on each case and refraction error. FUDEM recommends regular eye examinations.
