Myopia is a condition of the eye, where the light that comes in does not directly focus on the retina but in front of it, causing the image that one sees when looking at a distant object to be out of focus, but in focus when looking at a close object.
Myopia is the most frequent eye condition in our population: nearsighted people cannot see well distant objects.
Myopia is the most frequent eye condition in our population: nearsighted people cannot see well distant objects. Visual acuity (visus) is measured in tenths: if, while seated at a fixed distance from the Eye Chart (the board used for the examination), you can read 10 lines, then you have 10 tenths; if you can read 6 lines, you have 6 tenths, and so on.
The diopter is the power of the lens that let us achieve the best possible vision in case of eye conditions: it does not represent how much a patient sees, but rather the lens’s power needed to obtain the best vision possible.
There are three types of myopia: light degree myopia (up to 4 diopters), medium degree myopia (up to 8 diopters), and high degree myopia (more than 8 diopters). In any case, it takes only few diopters (2-3) to feel lost without glasses or contact lenses: correcting myopia is therefore necessary for the majority of nearsighted patients.
Today correcting myopia is possible with glasses, contact lenses or via laser surgery. You can forget glasses and contact lenses for good thanks to:
The latest news consists in a Hight Tech intraocular lens that can be customised using laser. This myopia surgery has been performed for the first time ever in Milan by Dr. Badalà in 2010.
Myopia is usually caused by an excessive lenght of the orb.
Another cause could be the altered curvature of the cornea or the lens. Myopia can appear during the initial and intermediate phases of cataract, or after significant metabolic changes (e.g. diabetes): this happens because of alterations of the refraction index of dioptric tools (e.g. the lens).
An alteration in the cornea shape, noticeable in the keratoconus, involves the presence of myopia and astigmatism that increase over time.
For a long time rumors had it that it is possible to recover from myopia in a natural way, without having to rely on surgery or glasses. One of these techniques is called orthokeratology: it simply consists in wearing special contact lenses over night and removing them in the morning.
What happens is that these lenses distort the cornea, flattening it over night, so that patients see better during the day. They work like a bustier, worn at night, that makes people appear slimmer in the morning. This process can severely damage the cornea.

Problem: Astigmatism, MyopiaSolution: Astigmatic keratotomy, Refractive phacoemulsificationI underwent surgery for high myopia and astigmatism in both eyes on September, 19 and 20, 2013 and my quality of life has immediately improved.
Surgery began with a simple local anesthesia (eye drops). During surger... Keep on reading this reviewy, I didn’t feel any discomfort or pain and the procedure took about ten minutes. After surgery, I immediately started to see better and I went out from the operating room without any bandage.
The only inconvenience I mentioned, during the first days after surgery, was a slight and bearable burning and light sensitivity which disappeared in the following days.
After surgery I immediately went back to my everyday life, finally without the need for contact lenses or glasses.
I recommend this surgery with Dr. Federico Badalà and his professional, kind and passionate staff.
