• Nearsightedness

    What is Nearsightedness?

    Nearsightedness, or myopia, occurs when the curvature of the cornea is too steep or the eyeball is too long. With nearsightedness, the eye’s strong refractive power forces the image to be focused in front of the retina, rather than on it. When light focuses in front of the retina, near objects can be seen clearly, but far objects appear blurry.
