A 32-year-old male asked:

Nearsightedness: A nearsighted, or myopic, person is unable to see things clearly unless they are relatively close to the eyes, owing to the focusing of rays of light by the eye at a point in front of the retina. This may occur because the eye is too long from front to back or because the cornea is too steep. Distant objects appear blurry to a nearsighted person.

Activity after LASIK: Most eye surgeons would consider a week to be enough time before hitting the punching bag. At least a month before sparring. Absolutely check with your surgeon and follow his instructions.

No: Chronic eye strain does not cause insomnia. It can cause blurred vision and headaches.

This was very helpful. Thanks! Thank you very much for your reply! I was a little worried because I've heard that wearing cylinder lenses for small values is actually bad.

This made me feel good. Thanks! I went Optometry dept I do not have ptosis, miosis, and anhydrosis. They did not want to give me referral to see other doc.
