Myopia (Nearsightedness)

Nearsightedness or Myopiai is caused by either the eye-ball being too long or the eye having too much refractive power. Either way, light entering the eye gets focused "in front" of the retina rather than being focused correctly on the retina, resulting in a blurred image. Myopia affects between 20% to 30% of the population.

Myopia Symptoms

People who have myopia or nearsightedness have difficulty seeing distant objects, but can see objects that are near clearly. For example, the face of someone approaching a myope from a distance would appear blurred until they came up close.

The first indications of Myopia is the difficulty in seeing far objects. Myopes often complain of headaches, eye strain and tiredness when driving, playing sports or looking at distant things. They often squint in an attempt to improve their vision.More on Myopia Symptoms ...

Causes of Myopia

Myopia is prevalent in “educated” societies and is rare in privative illiterate societies. The evidence is that Myopia is directly linked either to close-up work or the emotional impact of such work.

Myopia is closely associated with occupations where eyes are required to focus on near objects, like students, officers, computer workers, and writers. The opposite is true for those who use their eyes mainly for distance, like farmers,fishermen and rangers, who rarely became nearsighted.More on Myopia Causes ...

In recent years there has been much additional research confirming that myopia, like obesity and heart disease, is triggered by certain lifestyles, and near work is a major factor in the lifestyle associated with myopia.
