Do you know your refractive error?

I am myopic​

Objects appear sharp close by;
objects in the distance are blurred.

Myopia (nearsightedness)

Light rays are refracted by the cornea and the lens so that the focal point is in front of the retina. Therefore, distant objects appear blurred. Depending on the degree of nearsightedness, objects close-up appear sharp.

Which treatment methods are possible?

Nearsightedness is basically correctable, hardly anyone has to live with glasses or contact lenses. The basis of a decision is always the medical results of our particularly detailed preliminary examination and a thorough consultation. In most cases, myopia can be corrected fast and painless with laser eye treatment, but other procedures are also available.
