MYOPIA

WHAT IS MYOPIA
Myopic people see near objects clearly, but far away is everything blurred. Myopia
later in life (after 40 years) is very useful because reading glasses isn't always required, it's even possible you don't need your glasses anymore (if the myopia is equal or less than -3. Myopia of more than -5 is not practical because the text has to close should be kept).

REASON
The eye is too long (-3 diopters indicates 1 mm too long) so that the light through the lens projected the images FOR the retina instead of on the retina. It is therefore a length deviation and not a disease!


SIGNS
Myopic patients squints easy their eyes to something in the distance and are all keen to see closer than normal viewing
(a book or TV).

 
TREATMENT
Exercises and vitamins do not help. A negative glass or contact lenses move the image back and so is the length of the eye deviation resolved. There should be set that myopic patients are ideal candidates for contact lenses. Contact lenses having a myopic focus and  is very thin, which is enduring for wearing contact lenses. Initially, the glasses only be worn for far vision (TV, table, car drive). If the strength is more than -2.5 dioptres is advisable to wear the glasses all the time, because in daily life the visual impairment is too much without correction. Not wearing the glasses can not damage vision. The reverse should also be made: wearing glasses won't  increase your myopia.

The moment you feel that your best by wearing glasses, there may be given thought of contact lenses. This from the age of 10 to 12 years. You should carefully cope with your contact lenses. If the myopia is stable at 20-25 years you can possibly think of definitive correction with laser or "scratches". The laser treatment has been much improved, so scratches are seldom performed.
Ask our specific information folder if you do are interested.


EVOLUTION
As the patient grows, the eyes usually also gets bigger and stronger glasses are required (a -0.5 -0.25 extra per year).
Annual monitoring is therefore appropriate, otherwise the school results suffer from the poorer visibility. Be expected that the evolution stops at growthstop (approximately 20 to 25 years), unless the patient reads a lot of close work (eg computer). Then the myopia evolve somewhat. In patients with very high myopia (more than -6 / this is exceptional!), The myopia even after 25 y evolve (or spontaneous by pregnancy). Sometimes, there occur weak spots in the retina due to too much stretching of the membrane in the eye. This may, although rare - lead to poor visibility and retinal tears. A retinal tear can eventually lead to retinal detachment (even rarer). The sight of flashing lights, black spots and distortion in this context are warning signs that you should spend time with an ophthalmologist. More than -8 was therefore more than once also, for safety reasons, rejected for military service.
