Is there a cure for late adult onset myopia?

Late adult onset myopia can be improved, and your vision can be corrected. Vision surgery is designed to correct nearsightedness. It will improve your vision so that corrective lenses (glasses or contacts) are not needed. Without surgery, glasses and contact lenses correct for myopia, but obviously when you remove your glasses, objects at a distance appear blurry again. With treatment, your distance vision can be improved.
