How do I manage my curvature myopia on a daily basis?

Curvature myopia can be managed by wearing prescription eye glasses or contacts. Depending on the degree of your myopia, you may only need to wear eye glasses for certain types of activities. If you continue to squint or develop headaches due to eye strain, see your doctor about adjusting your eye glass prescription. If you've had surgery to correct your curvature myopia, talk to your doctor about any post-surgery instructions.
