Myopia can be managed with the help of prescription glasses and contact lenses. Many different varieties of contact lenses are now available, which you can discuss with your doctor.
Other procedures to improve the refractive error may also be suggested, such as:
Use of laser technology to help reshape the cornea (LASEK and LASIK)
PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy) to help the cornea regrow with an improved shape
In exceptional cases, lenses may be implanted into your eyes, a procedure known as IOL (Intraocular Lens) implant
You must discuss the potential risks and complications of all these procedures against possible benefits with your eye doctor.
