Myopia: focal point of light rays form before retina
What is myopia
Myopia, technically known as hypometropia, is a visual impairment caused most often by the presence of the very long eye bulb. Excessive curvature of the lens or cornea can also cause myopia.
In a myopic person's eye, light rays converge on a focal point before the retina.
A person with nearsightedness (myopia) sees blurred (blurred) objects far away. Nearby objects are seen clearly.
Myopia can be corrected with the use of prescription glasses, corrective contact lenses or surgical procedure.
