Myopia

What is myopia

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness or shortsightedness, is when objects up close are in focus, but objects in the distance appear blurry. Most people with myopia wear glasses or contacts. Myopia is a very treatable eye condition.

Signs and symptoms of Myopia

  • Trouble seeing in the distance, reading road signs, alarm clock or TV watching
  • Squinting, eye strain, headache
  • Feeling fatigue when driving

What causes myopia?

Myopia occurs when the cornea is too steep or the eye is too long. When light rays from distant objects enter the uncorrected eye, they converge in front of the retina so the image is unfocused. Laser eye surgery moves the image back onto the retina and this gives crisp, clear vision.
