What Is Myopia?
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.
How Is Myopia Treated?
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.
SPEX Seattle Reviews
Dr. Campbell is THE BEST. The staff squeezed me in to his busy schedule for an irritating eye issue. I was in and out in 10 minutes, he determined exactly what was going on, and had a quick solution!!! Did I mention THE BEST!!!
Dr. Campbell and his team are phenomenal. They are all so thoughtful, respectful, knowledgeable, and kind. Each visit is pleasant and efficient. I would highly recommend going to Spex. Additionally, they have a wide array of fashionable and interesting glasses frames to choose from.
While visiting Seattle from Houston, the screw came out of the arm of my glasses. The lovely ladies at Spex were able to fix my glasses better than before with a locktite screw. I am so thankful to be able to use my glasses! Thank you so very much!
The optometrist has (innovative) excellent communication skills. I felt really confident with his advice and prescription. The two staff members made for a comfortable, memorable experience and I will definitely return for my next eye exam.
Dr. Scott Campbell is the best! Our family has been seeing him for many years and my husband and I have moved to 2 different locations that put us 5+ hours and 1.5 hours from his office. We still keep him as our eye doctor. His office is immaculate, his staff is very friendly, caring and helpful, and Scott is up on the latest new eye conventions. He does refer patients to other specialties when needed. Our experience is that he is always on time so no unnecessary waiting for your appointment. His office is in the middle of the downtown core, 1 block from Nordstrom. I never hesitate to recommend Dr. Scott Campbell at Spex!
