Eye Problems Myopia

Myopia, more commonly known as nearsightedness, affects almost 1/3 of the population. People who have myopia can usually see objects that are nearby but have trouble seeing objects that are far away.

Myopia occurs when the eyeball is longer than normal or when the cornea of the eye is steeper than normal. This causes images to focus in the vitreous (the thick gelatinous fluid in front of the retina) of a person’s eye rather than where it should be focusing, on the retina at the back of the eye.

While myopia is usually diagnosed during early childhood, it can be diagnosed later in life. Once diagnosed, myopia can either stabilize or, in some cases, worsen.
