Myopia, also known as short or near sightedness, is one of the world’s most common sight problems. It’s a refractive error that leaves people with a permanent difficulty focusing on far away objects. Here we’ll explore the common causes and symptoms of myopia, as well as offer tips and options for correcting it, such as eyeglasses, contact lenses or surgery.
If a specialist examines your eyes and diagnoses you with myopia it’s essential that you follow his or her recommendations. Use the corrective eyeglasses you’ve been prescribed. This will prevent your myopia from worsening and protect the health of your eyes, among other things.
