Nearsightedness is a condition where the eyes could see objects that are close clearly but could not focus on objects that are far. The majority of vision correction in the US is for those who are nearsighted or those with myopia. The most popular treatment for this eye condition is still the eye glasses.
Nearsighted glasses include single-vision eye glasses that provide the right levels of correction for vision. Older people with myopia may require bifocal lenses to read or to do work like needlework or crafts. There are also others who might need trifocal or even multifocal lenses to see things clearly through a range of distances.
Some may only require ‘driving glasses’ when driving, which are low-strength eye glasses. Nearsightedness could also make the eyes sensitive to sunlight, thus they need sunglasses that let them see clearly even on sunny and bright days. For mildly nearsighted persons, reading glasses may be the only vision correction they need. Reading glasses are rated through their magnification strength and could be purchased over the counter without the need for a prescription. There are many types of nearsighted glasses to choose from those suits your needs, lifestyle and the shape of the face as well.
