Medical My Myopia: How do I regain my eyesight?

  • Thread starter Perceptron
  • Start date
For the past 5 years I have been constantly using the computer for at least on average 4 hours a day and reading books. But I think because of this, my eyes are going bad. I have hard trouble seeing from far distances. Is there any way of regaining my eyesight?

Thank you.

The terminology may be different in the UK, but in the USA, an optician is not a medical professional, but rather someone who makes eyeglasses according to a prescription from a medical professional: either an opthalmologist (who is trained in diseases of the eye generally) or an optometrist (who is specialized in measuring visual ability and prescribing the proper corrective lenses for eyeglasses).
