There are basically three ways to treat myopia:
1. Eyeglasses
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.
