Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a common refractive error affecting the ability to see distant objects clearly. People with myopia experience clear vision when looking at nearby objects but struggle with blurry vision when viewing distant objects.

Myopia occurs when the shape of the eye causes light to focus in front of the retina instead of directly on it. This condition often starts during childhood or adolescence and may worsen if left unmanaged.

What Causes Myopia?

The development of myopia is influenced by both genetic and environmental factors. Individuals with a family history of myopia are more likely to develop the condition. In addition, environmental factors such as excessive near work, such as reading or using digital devices for extended periods, and limited time spent outdoors, especially during childhood, can contribute to the onset and progression of myopia.
