About 40 percent of the population in the United States has myopia, or nearsightedness, making it one of the most diagnosed refractive vision impairments. Myopia is a refractive error that causes struggles with or a lack of ability to see items or focal points that are not close to the eye. This means that far-away images may appear fuzzy, or the patient may not be able to see them at all. If you are myopic, there are several options to address it and help enhance your distance vision. At his office in Seattle, WA, Dr. Scott Campbell and his team diagnose and treat refractive errors, like myopia, and provide appropriate solutions that best fit your lifestyle. Contact SPEX to schedule a refractive exam if you are experiencing differences in your sight or are having difficulty seeing from a distance.

Diagnosing myopia is a simple process and is typically done with a routine vision acuity exam. The majority of people have seen this test, which usually involves reading letters ranging in size on an eye chart. Further familiar evaluations that are often performed use a phoropter (also called a refractor) and a retinoscope (a tiny light) to test how your retinas refract light. Myopia can be treated through prescribed eyeglasses or contacts to enhance vision. Often, patients choose to use both glasses and contacts to suit their lifestyle needs. Many people may also be candidates for laser vision correction surgery for long-term results.

Dr. Campbell and his team are first-rate in every way! My wife deals with iritis frequently due to her ankilosing spondylitis and he always gets things under control quickly, and is available by phone whenever she needs. I recently went in for an eye exam and he got me dialed in for a pair of progressive lenses. Can't recommend him enough!!
