What is Myopia?
Myopia is a common refractive error also known as nearsightedness. Patients with myopia cannot clearly see objects that are far away. The distance at which patients lose clarity varies from case to case.
Myopia occurs when the eyeball is too long in proportion to the curvature of the cornea, causing light to focus at a point just in front of the retina, rather than directly on the retina.
