The ophthalmologist will perform a general eye exam, which consists of a series of tests that give him or her elements to assess your visual capacity and your eyes anatomy, which will allow him or her to make an accurate diagnosis.
Once the diagnosis is defined, he or she will establish the most appropriate treatment for you, but in general it should include the use of framed glasses, contact lenses or, in very advanced cases, refractive surgery.
Through this surgical procedure it is possible to fix the anomaly without the need of using glasses. The most used techniques are:
- Lasik: uses a laser to correct corneal deformation.
- Photorefractive keratotomy (PRK): using a laser, the cornea is modified so that light refraction is correct.
