Wearing glasses or contacts is necessary for some people to have clear enough eyesight to function in daily life, but they can also be a nuisance. Glasses can fall off your face or even break if you play sports or have a physical job, and contacts often lead to dry eyes or are uncomfortable to put in place. The trusted optometrist in La Mesa, CA, aims to fix these problems with the help of orthokeratology.
Vision problems are commonplace in school, so much so that every 1 in 4 school-aged child will have some sort of vision problem according to a statistic from Prevent Blindness America.
Causes of Myopia
Nearsighted people have a refractive error, which causes light rays to focus at a point in front of the retina rather than directly on its surface. In most cases, this error occurs as a result of the eyeball being too long or the curvature of the cornea being extreme. Sometimes it can be a combination of both factors.
Myopia also runs in families, so there is reason to believe it is partly genetic. Children who have one parent with myopia have a higher risk developing the condition. This risk compounds if both parents are nearsighted.
