Myopia is a common vision condition in which you can see objects near to you clearly, but objects farther away are blurry. It occurs when the shape of your eye causes light rays to bend (refract) incorrectly, focusing images in front of your retina instead of on your retina.
Myopia may develop gradually or rapidly, often worsening during childhood and adolescence. Short sightedness tends to run in families.
Symptoms may include:
Myopia is often first detected during childhood and is commonly diagnosed between primary school and teenage years.
A child with near-sightedness may:
Your eye has two parts that focus images:
In a normally shaped eye, each of these focusing elements has a perfectly smooth curvature. A cornea and lens with such curvature bend (refract) all incoming light to make a sharply focused image directly on the retina, at the back of your eye.
A refractive error
If your cornea or lens isn't evenly and smoothly curved, light rays aren't refracted properly, and you have a refractive error.
Myopia usually occurs when your eyeball is longer than normal or your cornea is curved too steeply. Instead of being focused precisely on your retina, light is focused in front of your retina, resulting in a blurry appearance for distant objects.
Certain risk factors may increase the likelihood of developing myopia, such as:
Near-sightedness is associated with a variety of complications from mild to severe, such as:
If your difficulty seeing things that are far away clearly is pronounced enough that you can't perform a task as well as you wish, or if the quality of your vision detracts from your enjoyment of activities you should organise an eye examination.
