    Myopia is an eye condition in which the eyeball is too long. This causes light rays to bend incorrectly and focus images in front of the retina instead of behind it. People with myopia find it is easier to see things close up, while objects that are further away look fuzzy or blurry.

    Corrective lenses take care of this issue.



    For people with near or short-sightedness, objects that are close to them look clear but objects that are further away look blurry.
