Brief Answer:
It requires refraction and correction.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for the follow up question.

Short sightedness is a common refractive error, it is called as myopia.
It requires treatment by refraction and correction.
You can wear correction in the form of spectacles or contact lenses. If you do not like spectacles and contact lenses you can go for refractive laser surgery like LASIK.

Hence I advice you to consult your ophthalmologist or optometrist for refraction and correction.

Hope I have answered your question and the information is helpful to you.

If you any queries please write to me.

Thank you

My father has had severe breathing problems for several years. Pulmonologists could not find anything wrong with his lungs. Last month, he saw a ENT who said that his epiglottis is too large and is not functioning properly, which is the cause of his breathing problems. He said that laser surgery can be done to trim the epiglottis but it's very difficult to know how much to trim - and if too much is taken off, he will end up on tube feedings the rest of his life. Who is the best doc in the US to treat this problem?
