Myopia can cause blurry distant vision and significantly affect your daily life. At Simpson and Mann Optometry in Montclair, CA, we provide comprehensive eye exams to learn more about your condition and treatment to help you see more clearly. Prior to visiting us, learn more about myopia below:
What Causes Myopia?
There are a few reasons why you might have this condition. For example, you eyeball might be too long from front to back or your cornea or lens may be irregularly shaped. As a result, objects that are up close appear clear, while those that are far away are blurry.
Treatment for Myopia
When you visit us, we will perform an eye exam to learn more about your eye health and determine the necessary treatment. Our optometrist may recommend eyeglasses or contact lenses to help improve your vision. If you decide to get glasses, you can pick frames that will complement your facial features and also match your sense of style.
When it comes to contact lenses, we have various lenses that you can choose from. Disposable contacts are changed every day or you can choose ones that are disposed monthly. There are also specialty contact lenses, known as Ortho-K, which can temporarily reshape the cornea. These lenses can be used to slow the progression of myopia, especially in children. We can also assist you with the insertion and removal process. Along with that, we can provide guidance on how to care for your lenses to ensure they stay clean.
We also offer vision therapy, which consists of eye exercises. The therapy can help improve your visual skills and abilities. Our optometrist can also suggest exercises that you can do at home to help you see clearly.
