Near-Sightedness (Myopia)

About- Near-sightedness, also called myopia or short-sightedness and is an eye condition in which nearby objects can be viewed properly but remote objects appear fuzzy or blurry.
 
Symptoms-
  • Blurry vision for remote objects
  • Difficulty seeing while driving a vehicle
  • Eye squinting
  • Eyestrain
  • Fatigued eye
  • Headaches
Causes-
Nearsightedness usually takes place when the eyeball is longer than normal or the cornea is curved too steeply. Due to that, the light is focused in front of the retina instead of focussing precisely on the retina.

Risk Factors
  • A family history
  • Environmental conditions
  • Reading and close-up work for a long period
