TREATED IN DULUTH, GA (NORTH OF ATLANTA) at Georgia Eye Physicians & Surgeons
Affecting nearly 30% of people in the United States, myopia (nearsightedness) is a refractive error that causes objects to appear blurry from a distance, while objects up close appear clear. Myopia occurs when the cornea is overly curved, or the eyeball itself is too long, causing light passing through the eye to bend and incorrectly focus.
During a comprehensive eye examination, Dr. Segal and Dr. Lay of Georgia Eye Physicians and Surgeons in Duluth, Georgia (north of Atlanta) will examine your eye’s ability to reflect light off of the retina to properly diagnose if patients have developed myopia. Offering his patients the best treatment options to suit their daily needs and expectations, Dr. Segal and Dr. Lay thoroughly discusses the various solutions available to help restore the eyes to their optimal ability.
Popular treatments recommended to correct myopia include eyeglasses, contact lenses, optical therapy and laser treatments (PRK and LASIK), depending on the severity of the eye condition. Using a phoropter, an instrument used to measure the amount of refractive error within the eyes, Dr. Segal is able to accurately determine the best prescription needed to provide you with clearer vision and recommend the best possible treatment for each of his patients. The Georgia Eye Physicians and Surgeons Optical Center offers a wide-variety of customizable styles and name-brand frames and lenses that are uniquely-tailored to best accommodate your lifestyle.
