**** i dont want to go for surgery .*****
There are basically three ways to treat myopia:
2. Contact lenses
3. Refractive surgery such a LASIK
Myopia can't be corrected using vitamins or eyedrops. It is caused by either an elongation of the eyeball or a cornea that's too steep. Either condition causes the visual image to converge to a point in front of the retina instead of directly on it. This is what causes your blurry distance vision.
I know it may be hard for you to deal with at the moment, but myopia is a VERY common condition and it's nothing to be concerned about. If you can wear contact lenses, no one need even know you have myopia. Talk to your eyecare professional.
