Hi Ivana, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Minus eye or myopia is an eye refraction disorder that occurs because the image of the object projected by the eye lens falls in front of the retina of the eye (the back of the eyeball). The cause of myopia is because the eyeball is oval and longer than normal or the cornea of the eye is too convex. These eye anatomical abnormalities mainly occur due to heredity, but environmental factors are also thought to have a role in causing myopia. These environmental factors include reading too much, working at the computer too much, or doing other activities that use a lot of the eyes.
Because it is an anatomical abnormality in the eye, myopia cannot be treated using certain drugs or supplements. Until now, there are glasses or contact lenses to correct vision problems due to myopia. To be able to heal permanently, surgery can be done with laser (such as PRK or LASIK) and orthokeratology (corneal refractive therapy), namely the use of special contact lenses that can change the shape of the cornea. If you want to cure your myopia permanently, you can consult directly with an eye doctor.
