Myopia Management

Myopia has been increasing in prevalence, and its progression can lead to higher degrees of nearsightedness. This progression increases the risk of developing eye conditions like retinal detachment, glaucoma, and cataracts later in life. The primary goal of myopic control is to intervene early and implement strategies that can slow down the elongation of the eyeball and reduce myopic progression. Visit Locerne Optical in Wald Lake, Commerce, West Bloomfield, Novi, or Wixom, MI, to receive prompt treatment from our optometrist. 


Diagnosis and Options

Myopia results from the eye’s curvature developing into a non-average shape. The shape of the eye affects how light translates to imagery. Myopia is where distant objects appear blurry, while close-up objects can be seen clearly. This condition occurs when the eyeball is too long, or the cornea has excessive curvature, causing light rays to focus in front of the retina instead of directly on it.

Myopia is typically diagnosed during a comprehensive eye examination conducted by an optometrist. Our optometrist can confirm the myopia condition with a retinoscope and phoropter. Both instruments work to establish the impact of the retina shape, as well as the amount of refractive abnormality in play with a given patient.

Myopia Treatment with Our Eye Doctor

Where before only eyeglasses were possible, even when contact lenses became available, today patients can enjoy both and other choices for correction. Eyeglasses remain the baseline standard for vision correction with myopia. Although, contact lenses specially designed for non-normal eye shapes are now available, making it easy for patients to correct their vision without wearing anything.

Our eye doctor can easily perform an eye exam to confirm the severity of your myopia. From there, our optometrist can provide a prescription. Using the same information, you can still choose eyeglasses with designer frames. Once fitted, the contacts or glasses are matched to the patient for the correct fit.
