What Is Myopia (Short-Sightedness)?
Mr Glenn Carp – “Short-sightedness essentially is where the light in the eye converges after being focused by the eye’s natural focusing system and the light is focused to the point in front of the retina. So in another words, the eye itself either too long or the cornea in the front of the eye is too steep in curvature and therefore bends the light too much, not allowing the light to reach the retina.”
Myopia (Short-Sightedness) Explained Further…
Myopia, or short-sightedness, is a condition where the eye is too long and or the cornea is excessively curved resulting in too much focusing power. This means the image falls in front of the retina. You can see objects up close clearly but objects in the distance appear blurry. Laser Eye Surgery is ideally suited to treat short-sighted patients.
