Myopia is one of the most common vision related problems affecting millions of Americans every year. It is also called short sightedness and for many people it occurs with age. With the increase usage of computers and also watching television vision related problems are actually occurring early in life. People start wearing spectacles by the time they hit their thirties and not only that, even kids also are increasingly becoming prone to such conditions.
It has nothing to do with the genes or hereditary reasons and it can mainly depend on diet and also lifestyle habits. Myopia is a progressive condition only if you ignore it and the eye sight will worsen with age if you do not take the corrective measure at the right time.
A research shows that myopia affects nearly an estimated of 25 percent to 30 percent of the adult population. People who wear eye glasses because of myopia can consider the option of wearing contact lens. Contact lenses offer the same functionality and the comfort of the eye glasses while you are reading and the benefit is that nobody can tell by looking at you that you have a vision problem. A lot of people believe that contact lenses are worn due to cosmetic reasons, but there are more benefits also.
If the glasses are not kept clean, then the problem of eye sight can get worse. However, when it comes to contact lenses, the maintenance and care are much easier, and you can always ensure that you have a clear sight through your lenses unlike spectacles. Also, if you love playing sports, then wearing contact lens can be beneficial because they offer you the comfort.
