What Is Myopia?
Myopia, sometimes referred to as nearsightedness, is a common refractive error that causes blurry distance vision. It often occurs early in life as the eye begins to grow. As it grows, it can become elongated, distorting light and causing it to focus in front of the retina instead of on it. This condition often worsens as your eye continues to grow, and most patients experience increasingly high prescriptions until adulthood.
Other side effects of myopia include headaches and tired or sore eyes. Myopia can also worsen the symptoms of digital eye strain.
