Nearsightedness

What Is Nearsightedness?

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.
