Are there alternative treatments for curvature myopia?

Using eye glasses or contacts are the least expensive treatment for curvature myopia. Unlike surgery that reshapes the cornea, eye glasses and contacts are non-evasive treatments that use lens to counter the shape of the cornea.

Curvature myopia glasses and contact are prescribed, based on a diagnosis from your doctor or opthamologist.
