What is Myopia?
Myopia (nearsightedness) is the most common of refractive errors, according to the World Health Organization. Most often, it occurs around the age of ten, but it can affect people later in life, as well. Simply put, myopia occurs when the refractive power of the front part of the eye is too strong and focuses light before the light strikes the retina, making a blurry distant image. Closer targets are clear, so patients have less difficulty seeing up close.
Genetics, environment, behavior, cataracts, and anatomy, among other causes.
