welcome to healthcaremagic
Short sightedness can be corrected by glasses ,contact lenses or surgery.Glasses are comfortable,contact lenses slightly cumbersome and require maintainence,and surgery can only be done after the age of 21 when the power has remained stable for more than a year

You can also undergo LASIK.Contact lenses have their own problems.

Take care while using contact lenses. They cause many infections. I had this problem with it. I brought back to glasses. Ofcourse I got the lasik surgery done later. I think there is nothing much these doctors can do now with vision problem.
