What is Myopia?
Myopia is most commonly referred to as nearsightedness, where objects far away appear blurred, but objects close up are clear and sharp.
This is a lifelong condition that affects approximately half of the world’s population.
Myopia is caused by light rays being unable to pass through the front layers of your eye (the cornea and lens) to reach your retina due to the shape of your eye.
Symptoms of Myopia
- Objects far away appearing blurry
- Eye strain
- Frequent headaches
- Squinting to see clearly
