Should I talk to my doctor about my curvature myopia symptoms?

If you or your child has symptoms of curvature myopia, talk to your doctor or an opthamologist (an opthamologist is a doctor who specializes in eye conditions).

It's important to diagnosis myopia early because it can affect a child's performance in school. Common symptoms of myopia include one or more of the following:

  • difficulty seeing objects far away
  • frequent squinting and/or blinking
  • headaches due to eye strain

If you need to hold object up-close up, sit near the television or toward the front of a classroom to see the chalkboard or a presentation, talk to your doctor. The doctor or ophthalmologist will be able to treat the condition with eye glasses or contacts.
