Can myopia be cured?

There is no known cure for myopia. However, spectacles or contact lenses can help those with myopia to see clearly.

LASIK is another option that myopic adults can explore to help improve the functional status of the eye and remove the inconvenience of wearing spectacles or contact lenses. Such a surgical procedure however, does not cure myopia and is not recommended for young people below the age of 21 as their eyeballs are still developing and their myopia has not stabilised.

Prevention of myopia and delaying its progression early in life are important steps to take in the management of this condition.
