High myopia is a serious eye condition that affects long-distance vision as well as the long-term ocular health. Using corrective eye glasses, contacts can help you to see objects more clearly. Wearing sunglasses, avoiding poor lighting, and eating healthy are important ways to protect the health of your eyes. It's also important to talk you eye doctor when new symptoms develop. Early treatment for each symptom is a vital to preventing retinal detachment, which can lead to irreversible blindness.
