Myopic Degeneration Treatment in Metairie, LA

What is myopic degeneration?

Myopic degeneration is a severe form of myopia (nearsightedness). The eye grows abnormally large, causing it to stretch and leads to thinning of eye tissue. The condition can eventually damage the retina. It can be hereditary, and it can cause a person to become legally blind.

When should I see a specialist?

Myopic degeneration is progressive and will continue to worsen without treatment. If you experience worsening vision, blurred vision, straight lines becoming wavy, changes in color, problems focusing, or spots in your visual field, consult a specialist immediately. You will need to regularly follow-up with an ophthalmologist to reduce long-term damage.
