If your cornea is too steep, or if your eye is slightly too long, objects that are far away from your eye may appear blurry and out of focus. Eye surgeons refer to this as myopia, or nearsightedness.

About one third of the population suffers from nearsightedness to some extent. Many times nearsightedness is passed down from family members and develops during childhood. If you have a difficult time reading books or street signs, or seeing far away objects clearly, you could be suffering from myopia.

In addition to not being able to see objects clearly, people with myopia can have headaches, they may strain their eyes, and they can suffer from fatigue from doing certain activities, like driving at night. In the past, eye doctors corrected nearsightedness with contact lenses or glasses. Now, LASIK eye surgeon Daniel Sambursky can use LASIK Vision Correction to correct your vision if you are suffering from myopia or nearsightedness.

Using LASIK, LASIK eye surgeon Daniel Sambursky will reshape your cornea so that objects you look at will be in focus when they are both near and far away. Contact LASIK eye surgeon Daniel Sambursky in New York to schedule your initial consultation and find out if your nearsightedness can be corrected with one short LASIK procedure.
