  • Answer: With laser surgery or it can be corrected with glasses or contacts.
  • Answer: The doctor has the patient view images through a variety of lenses to obtain the best correction. The doctor also examines the inside of the eye and the retina. An instrument called a slit lamp is used to examine the cornea and lens.
  • Answer: By minimizing the amount of accommodation (near-focusing) your eyeshave to perform. This does not necessarily mean you have to avoidclose-up activities like reading and using a computer. It ispossible to avoid accommodation while dong this with the use ofreading glasses. This practice is known as plus-lens therapy.

    The reading glasses allow you to ensure your eyes rarely have tofocus any closer than the furthest point at which you can seethings clearly. This is achieved by bringing your focal range incloser, effectively making you more myopic. For those who spend alot of time looking at a computer screen about half a metre away,giving yourself 2 effective diopters of myopia would be ideal -your focal limit is approx. 1 metre divided by the number ofuncorrected negative diopters.

    The strength of reading glasses that would be appropriate woulddepend on what your current prescription is. Using reading glasseswould only really be feasible for those with a prescription nostronger than about -1.50 D. Simply add +2 to your prescription tofind the required strength, e.g. say you were -0.75... -0.75 + 2.00= +1.25. Reading glasses can be bought fairly inexpensively onEbay.

    Those who have close to 2 diopters of myopia to begin with couldbenefit from simply removing their distance glasses when on thecomputer or reading. Those with higher prescriptions, i.e strongerthan -3.00 D, may like to consider getting a reduced-strength pairof glasses specifically for reading/computer use; one that is 2diopters less than their full prescription. There are some low-coston-line glasses suppliers that can make this easier on your wallet,e.g. zennioptical and goggles4u.
  • Answer: myopia cannot be recovered perfectly after it reach 2.5 Dioptre ..yet can be cured by regular use of spectacles and eating food rich in Vitamin A..like carrot
  • Answer: It is nearsightedness and hyperopia is farsightedness.
  • Answer: Approximately one out of 10,000 people in the United States develop retinal detachments each year. People who are at highest risk are those with extreme nearsightedness (hypermyopia), a family history of retinal detachment, or thinning of the retina (lattice degeneration) or other degenerative retinal conditions. Such people should have regular retinal examinations and should be alert for symptoms.http://www.mdsupport.org/library/detach.html
  • Answer: Short sightedness
  • Answer: you would try some eye exercises
  • Answer: Well there are many kinds of myopia and why they occur you can look most of them up online but here is one main cause:

    Elevation of blood-glucose levels can cause swelling in the eye lens
  • Answer: Myopia does change the location of the near focal point, which makes it easier to complete close tasks (fixing/using computers, reading, etc.)
  • Answer: Cultural myopia occurs when information entering into the colonized mind is focused solely through a limited worldview, and anything existing outside of that limited worldview cannot be seen with clarity.
  • Answer: Myopia, also called nearsightedness or shortsightedness, is a refractive defect of the eye in which collimated light produces image focus in front of the retina when accommodation is relaxed.Those with myopia see nearby objects clearly but distant objects appear blurred. With myopia, the eyeball is too long, or the cornea is too steep, so images are focused in the vitreous inside the eye rather than on the retina at the back of the eye. The opposite defect of myopia is hyperopia or "farsightedness" or "long-sightedness" - this is where the cornea is too flat or the eye is too short.
  • Answer: Myopia means nearsightedness. A person with myopia has trouble seeing close things clearly. Glasses help to be able to read things up close for people with myopia.
  • Answer: Use of Sulphonamides.
  • Answer: convex lens
