Myopia, or nearsightedness, is the most common vision problem, affecting approximately one in four people. People with myopia can clearly see objects up close but not those at a distance. Myopia occurs when the cornea is either curved too steeply, or the eye is too long.

Feel free to ask Dr. Genge anything about myopia treatment, and to find out what he can do to help you.
