Related to the distance that one can see when they look at objects, nearsightedness (myopia) is one of the most common visual ailments. A thorough eye exam with our local Maplewood optometrist, at Maplewood Vision Care, can help diagnose the level of nearsightedness and treat it properly. Dr. Dennis J. Delesio believes in a lifetime of learning and brings cutting-edge technology and information back to our valued patients.
Myopia means you can see better up close than you can far away. Myopia is caused by your eye being longer than average, so light that is focused in your eye lands in front of your retina instead of on your retina. Our patients with severe myopia can clearly see objects just a few inches away while those with mild cases can clearly see objects several yards away. Tending to run in families, myopia can develop gradually or rapidly, and frequently gets worse during childhood and teenage years. Some treatments suggested by our Maplewood optometrist would be nearsighted glasses, contact lenses, or laser refractive surgery. All these options focus on moving the image from in front of your retina to on your retina itself.
