Myopia is a defect in the vision and is classified by near sightedness. It is one of the most common types of vision problem that people develop. It affects people of all ages. There are several myths about myopia that if people read a book holding close to their face they will develop short sightedness and so on. However, it is not true and myopia can develop for several different reasons.
People who have myopia can see objects that are far away very clearly but as the object moves closer it becomes fuzzy and a blurred image for them. However, if the myopia is not corrected, then it can cause several eye diseases and also cause a worse eye condition. Myopia can be corrected with prolonged use of spectacles. People who find wearing spectacles uncomfortable can also wear contact lens instead.
Myopia has been found in children and also in early childhood like toddlers. However, it is one of the most difficult conditions to diagnose in children. Also, at the same time it is a dangerous condition to have in childhood as it can affect the mental abilities of a child.
The problem of myopia occurs when the eye locks the muscle to read in a short sighted fashion for a long time. Due to this the muscle becomes elongated and causes the problem of myopia. The retina is somewhat made into a tunnel; and since the light takes longer time to travel within the retina, people can only see what is far away.
