Myopia is treatable with prescription glasses, which are the simplest and safest option. To refocus light correctly on the retina, the lenses of your glasses will be thicker at the edge than in the middle. Your eyecare professional will prescribe the lenses that are right for you depending on the severity of your near-sightedness.
