If someone is short-sighted they often find it difficult to see things further away.

You may be short-sighted if you’re having trouble focusing on:

  • Road signs
  • TV or cinema screens
  • People’s faces in the distance
  • Blackboards at school

Your George & Matilda Eyecare optometrist can assess your visual requirements and may prescribe glasses or contact lenses. They can also advise on other options such as orthokeratology and laser corrective surgery.
