Myopia is a common vision condition in which you can see objects near to you clearly, but objects farther away are blurry. It occurs when the shape of your eye causes light rays to bend (refract) incorrectly, focusing images in front of your retina instead of on your retina.
Myopia may develop gradually or rapidly, often worsening during childhood and adolescence. Short sightedness tends to run in families.
Symptoms may include:
Myopia is often first detected during childhood and is commonly diagnosed between primary school and teenage years.
A child with near-sightedness may:
Your eye has two parts that focus images:
In a normally shaped eye, each of these focusing elements has a perfectly smooth curvature. A cornea and lens with such curvature bend (refract) all incoming light to make a sharply focused image directly on the retina, at the back of your eye.
A refractive error
If your cornea or lens isn't evenly and smoothly curved, light rays aren't refracted properly, and you have a refractive error.
Myopia usually occurs when your eyeball is longer than normal or your cornea is curved too steeply. Instead of being focused precisely on your retina, light is focused in front of your retina, resulting in a blurry appearance for distant objects.
Certain risk factors may increase the likelihood of developing myopia, such as:
Near-sightedness is associated with a variety of complications from mild to severe, such as:
If your difficulty seeing things that are far away clearly is pronounced enough that you can't perform a task as well as you wish, or if the quality of your vision detracts from your enjoyment of activities you should organise an eye examination.

I recently had a cataract removed by Mr Golchin. The experience, from start to finish of the procedure, was calm, reassuring and a success. Not only is Mr Golchin an excellent surgeon but also an active listener with excellent communication skills. On any of my visits to his clinic he encouraged questions, listened attentively and continued to reassure me. This was very important as I was extremely nervous about the whole procedure. Mr Golchin performed an outstanding surgery. I had absolutely no pain or irritation, 20/20 vision now in both eyes and feeling 10 years younger. What more can you ask of an excellent surgeon.
