Eye Conditions that we treat at Queensland Laser Vision
Shortsightedness or Nearsightedness
Is a refractive error or vision condition in which close
objects are seen clearly but objects further away appear blurred. This occurs if
the eyeball is too long or the cornea has too much curvature. Light entering the
eye does not focus on the retina but in front of it.
Myopia usually occurs in school-aged children and
progresses until about age 20. Distance objects like the black or white board at
school or the television at home become increasingly out of focus. In high
myopia, even near vision is affected and spectacles are worn at all times.
Low myopia usually describes myopia of -3.00 dioptres or
Medium myopia usually describes myopia of between -3.00 and
High myopia usually describes myopia of -6.00 or more
When the amount of myopia has stabilised, laser surgery is
a very effective means of treatment.
