About Nearsightedness or Myopia

The ophthalmologist eye doctors at Ridgewood Eye Associates in Paramus NJ offer testing, eye exams, diagnosis and treatment of nearsightedness or myopia for patients of all ages. Nearsightedness or myopia is a common refractive vision problem that results most often from the axial length of the eye being too long and/or the curvature of the Cornea being too steep. This results in light and images being focused in front of the retina. A patient who has nearsightedness or myopia typically has difficulty seeing things at distance with this type of common refractive eye problem. At Ridgewood Eye Associates in Paramus NJ, our eye doctors can correct vision problems caused by nearsightedness or myopia with eyeglasses, contact lenses and laser eye surgery such as LASIK and, if you have a cataract, by choosing a lens implant (IOL).
