Myopia may be defined as the refractive error of the eye, which causes nearsightedness. One of the most common reasons for developing myopia is eye fatigue and strain, because of constant use of computers. Signs of myopia include headaches, squinting and eye strain. People with nearsightedness find it difficult to read road signs and identify objects at a distance. But on the other hand they can read a book or work on the computer without any trouble. It generally occurs when the eyeball is too long or the lens/cornea of the eye is highly curved. It can be corrected with glasses, contact lenses and even surgery.
HOW IS MYOPIA DIAGNOSED?
Orthokeratology is an advanced non-surgical procedure to correct nearsightedness.
