What Is Nearsightedness?
Nearsightedness occurs when the eyeball is slightly longer than usual from front to back. This causes light rays to focus at a point in front of the retina, rather than directly on its surface.
What Should I Do?
Nearsightedness can be corrected with glasses or contact lenses, or refractive surgery such as LASIK.
Why It's Important?
Myopia has been reported in over 25% of all adult Americans.
