Myopia

Information on Myopia from Vision Source Castle Hills

Growing up, many people learn about the importance of seeing a doctor on a regular basis. This includes regular visits to the eye doctor. These visits provide eye doctors with an opportunity to identify potential problems with someone's vision before they have the change to develop. One of the potential problems that an eye doctor might identify is myopia, also known as nearsightedness. When someone has been diagnosed with myopia, they need to learn about the different types of eye care that they may need. Our team at Vision Source Castle Hills is here to provide everyone in the northern San Antonio area with access to trained optometrists.

The Symptoms of Nearsightedness

When someone has been diagnosed with myopia, there are a few common visual problems that might arise. The most common complaint that people have is that they are having trouble seeing clearly at a distance. Problems with myopia often develop in childhood, and are first noticed when a student is having trouble seeing. Headaches are another common symptom of myopia. They come from squinting and straining the eyes throughout the course of the day. This can place a lot of stress on the muscles of the scalp, leading to a severe headache. Noticing these symptoms can all help uncover a diagnosis of nearsightedness.

Prescription Lenses for Someone Who Is Nearsighted

When someone visits our eye doctor complaining of some of the symptoms described above, one aspect of the comprehensive eye exam we can give to that person will check for any possible refractive errors that person may have. If that person does, in fact, have a refractive error like myopia, we can provide that person with a prescription for either glasses or contacts to correct their vision.
