Currently, there is no cure for nearsightedness. But corrective lenses only work while a person is wearing them and they are not a cure. Once myopia has stabilized (usually sometime after age 18 to 20), LASIK and other laser eye surgery procedures are effective long-term treatments for nearsightedness.
Keeping this in view, are you born short sighted?
Short-sightedness is a refractive eye condition. Refractive eye conditions are caused when problems with the structure of the eye affects how light rays enter your eye. Most people are born slightly long-sighted (where close objects appear blurred) because their eyes haven't grown to their full length.
Also to know, why does myopia happen?
Myopia occurs if the eyeball is too long or the cornea (the clear front cover of the eye) is too curved. As a result, the light entering the eye isn't focused correctly, and distant objects look blurred. Because the eye continues to grow during childhood, it typically progresses until about age 20.
Is short sightedness permanent?
While it may not always be possible to completely cure your short-sightedness, around 9 out of 10 people experience a significant improvement in their vision. Many people are able to meet the minimum vision requirements for driving. Most people who have laser surgery report that they're happy with the results.
