Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a common condition that affects people of all ages, all over the world. If you're in the Bessemer, AL, area and experiencing myopia, our optometrist and staff at Wallace Optometry Associates are here to help. We know that not seeing clearly can be frustrating and we want to help provide you with the best vision correction options for your needs. You don't have to settle for blurry or fuzzy vision when you can get quality myopia treatment from us.
We Offer Family Eye Care
Eye care for the whole family can make your life more convenient, especially if you have young children and a busy life, or if more than one person in your family has a diagnosis of myopia. If you or a loved one need myopia control through eyeglasses or other methods, we are here help provide options for clearer, sharper vision and healthier eyes.
An Eye Exam Is the First Step
The first thing to do is to come in for an eye exam. An eye exam can help us determine whether you have myopia and how much vision correction you'll need. Depending on what we find, we may have several recommendations for a treatment plan. While myopia isn’t a dangerous eye disease, being severely myopic can make it hard to work or perform daily life tasks without good vision correction.
Common Myopia Treatment Options
Typically, myopia treatment involves eyeglasses. Eyeglasses are not the only option, though. Contact lenses can also be an option. Which treatment is right for you will depend on the degree of your myopia, the health of your eyes, and other factors. Some people have irregular corneas, for example, which can make wearing standard contact lenses for myopia control more difficult.
We can also supply atropine drops to help slow the progression of myopia in children. Regular use of these eye drops can help prevent your child’s myopia from getting worse as grows up.
We Also Treat Dry Eye
We treat dry eye in addition to myopia. If you have a hard time seeing clearly, you can put a lot of stress and strain on your eyes and end up with eyes that feel dry and uncomfortable. Working with our optometrist for family eye care options can be a great way to feel confident in the treatment you're getting and your ability to improve your vision.
