Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a condition where a person can see near objects more clearly than distant objects. A myopic eye causes light from distant objects to be focused before they reach the retina and results in blurred vision for distant objects. Excessive myopia in children can result in lazy eye (amblyopia). Holding objects very close and squinting may indicate significant myopia.
Dr. Schuetz has helped us through vision issues since my son was 7. Couldn’t imagine going anywhere else. She has been supportive and knowledgeable throughout the whole process. Best of all, my boys aren’t afraid to go to the eye doctor because she makes them feel at ease.Jenine E
