Treating Myopia (if you are Short sighted) with Laser Eye Surgery
If you are short sighted, your eyeball is slightly longer and rounder than it should be (see image on the right). This means the light converges just in front of the retina, creating a blurred image at distance.
Myopia is the ideal condition for Laser Eye Treatment
Myopia is usually corrected with glasses or contact lenses. But it is also an ideal condition for laser eye treatment. By slightly reshaping the front of the cornea, the light is refocused precisely on the retina, eliminating short sighted.
It’s impossible to truly describe the delight of seeing the world in sharp focus through your own eyes: it has to be experienced to be understood. Being free of glasses or contacts makes an enormous difference to everyday life – simple things like showering, swimming or playing with children become easier and less of a worry. And there are obvious benefits for anyone actively involved in sports. Many myopia patients find it also helps in social situations, as faces are easier to recognise and read without glasses.[info_box]If you’re seriously considering laser eye surgery, you should seriously consider us.
