If you find yourself struggling to see objects at a distance, a refractive error known as myopia may be to blame. At Palisades Optometrics, we utilize advanced technology and methods to diagnose and treat Bergen County myopia. Our goal is to provide the most effective course of care to improve your eye health, vision and overall quality of life.
Studies show that myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is the most common refractive error, affecting 30% of all people in the United States. Typically, if you suffer from myopia, objects that are far away appear blurry; this may make it difficult to read road signs, watch movies, or see the chalkboard from the back of a classroom. You may also experience headaches, double vision and eye strain. Myopia occurs when your eye cannot focus light correctly on the retina. To diagnose myopia, we will perform a comprehensive eye examination, which involves having you read a vision chart and performing tests to assess how light bends as it travels through your cornea and the lens of your eye. Using these advanced diagnostic methods, we can determine the most effective approach for treating your myopia. Our office offers an extensive selection of eyeglasses and contact lenses so that you can enjoy crisp, clear vision. Our experienced, caring team of professionals will determine which type of lenses are best suited for your needs. Your comfort and convenience are our priority throughout your visit, and we are happy to answer any questions to help you make the most informed decisions regarding treatment.
