Degree Of Nearsightedness

Evaluating Risk Factors: Nearsightedness

Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as degree of nearsightedness — that affect you.   Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.

If you indicate being astigmatic and near/farsighted or being nearsighted or farsighted, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Are you NEARSIGHTED in either eye? If one eye is more nearsighted than the other, only mention that eye. If one eye is farsighted, mention that eye in the next question. You can estimate 'mild' to 'extreme' if you do not know the exact diopters.
Possible responses:
→ No / I have astigmatism only / don't know
→ Mild nearsightedness (less than -3.00 diopters)
→ Moderate nearsightedness (-3.00 to -5.75 diopters)
→ Severe nearsightedness (-6.00 to -9.00 diopters)
→ Extreme nearsightedness (more than -9.00 diopters)

The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate being mildly nearsighted, being moderately nearsighted, being severely nearsighted or being extremely nearsighted, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider or rule out various possibilities.
