Understanding Myopiaand Its Causes
What is Myopia?
Myopia is a refractive error that causes distant objects to appear blurry while nearby objects remain clear. This happens when the eye grows too long, or the cornea is too curved, causing light to focus in front of the retina.
Myopia is a common condition affecting children and adults and can lead to difficulties with daily activities such as driving and reading.
Several factors can contribute to the development of myopia. Studies show that children with myopic parents are more likely to develop myopia themselves, and environmental factors such as spending excessive time on close work, such as reading or using electronic devices, can increase the risk of developing myopia.
