Myopia is because the length of your eyeball is more than normal . It can't be corrected by any homeopathic medicine. Please don't waste your time.
You will also be seeing multiple black floating spots in your vision. They are called floaters. They too can't be helped. You have to get used to them.
You should wear correct glasses or contact lenses.
You should be vigilant if u happen to see a sudden shower of black spots and flashes of light. U should see an eye doctor in that case.
Myopic people have some weak areas in the retina called lattice degeneration. You should show eye doctor regularly. The lattice can be treated with lasers if they cause symptoms of flashes n floaters

Consulting an experienced ophthalmologist is necessary. You may begin taking homeopathic medicine - Physostigma 30 since it lessens the severity of myopia. So Take 4 pills x 3 times daily for 3 months.

Hello.
Consult a ophthalmologist for correction of refractive error. Along with that you can consult a homoeopathic physician for a constitutional medicine so that your eye sight does not get worser. It is safe to have homoeopathic medicines during pregnancy and lactation. Rather , it will help your kid for the same.

Hello... Myopia occurs when the eyeball becomes too long and prevents incoming light from focusing directly on the retina. It may also be caused by an abnormal shape of the cornea or lens.Myopia can be corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or surgery....consult opthalmologist.
