Myopia

Myopia is a refractive defect or error in visual focusing. Images are focused in front of the retina and not on it, making long distance vision difficult.

A myopic person sees objects clearly if they are close up, but blurred if they are at a distance.

If the refractive defect is greater than eight dioptres, it is referred to as high myopia, which can involve serious specific visual risks and complications.

How to act?

  • Full ophthalmic check-up and eyesight test every year (high myopia)
  • Myopia cannot be cured, but can be corrected by wearing glasses or contact lenses. People who prefer not to wear glasses or contact lenses can opt for refractive surgery.
