How do I manage my late adult onset myopia on a daily basis?

All types of myopia are managed the same way. Once you are diagnosed with myopia, your doctor will discuss your treatment options. If you choose glasses or contacts, wear them daily as your doctor directs. Corrective lenses will help you to see objects in the distance more clearly. If objects become blurry, you should contact your doctor for another eye exam to determine what is happening. If you have had corrective eye surgery, you should not have any daily issues once your eyes have healed.
