Myopia (Nearsightedness) refers to a condition in which you can clearly see objects that are close to you, but cannot see distant objects clearly. Myopia is the result of a Refractive Problem and is the inability of the eye to focus on the retina.
If you have Myopia, your cornea and lens have too much focusing power, bending light rays to meet at a point in front of the retina. Glasses and contacts compensate for this condition by subtracting power from the eye’s natural focus and allowing light rays to focus further back on the retina.
If you find that you are able to see objects clearly close up, but have difficulty seeing objects clearly at a distance, please consult an Ophthalmologist.
