What is Nearsightedness?

Nearsightedness or short-sightedness also referred to as myopia is the condition where the distant objects are seen blurry while close objects appear normal. This is an eye disorder where light focuses in front of the retina instead of on the retina. Headache, squinting, eye strain, and fatigue are a few common symptoms of nearsightedness. 

Combinations of environmental and genetic factors are considered as the cause of nearsightedness.
