Myopia is a type of eye-refractive-error. It is also known as (commonly known as) Nearsightedness. It affects a significant number of people. Some people suffer from this refractive-error due to ageing, some have it by birth (genetic or due to family history). Reasons may vary but this eye disorder is easily corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or surgery. Use of contact lenses and eyeglasses is a matter of discomfort for many. So there is a surgery procedure. A laser technique based eye-treatment is performed by expert-eye-doctors (eye-surgeons) in Sydney.
This surgery helps people having nearsightedness. Those have myopia actually have difficulty seeing distant objects. They can clearly see objects that are near but they find difficulty in seeing objects that are distant. This condition or vision-problem is caused when the eyeball is too long or the cornea has too much curvature, so the light entering the eye is not focused correctly. Images focus in front of the retina, the light-sensitive part of the eye, rather than directly on the retina, causing blurred vision. There are some symptoms of this refractive-error. People with nearsighted often complain of headaches, eyestrain, squinting, or fatigue when driving, playing sports, or looking more than a few feet away. And, kids or children commonly complain of not being able to see the board at school. If you have any of such symptoms, or child does complain the same, it is call that you immediately go to visit eye-doctor. There are standard eye exams done to diagnose Nearsightedness.
Myopia treatment or a refractive laser surgery corrects refractive-error and can reduce or even eliminate dependence on glasses or contact lenses. There are different types of laser vision correction procedure such as Photorefractive keratectomy (also called PRK) and Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (also known as LASIK). PRK is a type of laser eye surgery performed using a laser to remove a layer of corneal tissue. That flattens the corneal curvature and allows light rays to focus closer to or even on the retina. And in LASIK procedure eye-surgeon uses a mechanical instrument to cut a thin flap through the top of the cornea. Then an excimer laser is used to sculpt the exposed corneal tissue, and the flap is dropped back into place. In Sydney, you can find out eye-care-clinic where expert eye-surgeons offer range of laser-eye-surgery-treatments.
