Myopia (or nearsightedness) is a condition where distant objects are blurrier than near objects. Myopia is becoming increasingly common in the United States and around the world. You might not know it, but high myopia is actually one of the leading causes of legal blindness!
Not only does Myopia affect your vision, but studies have shown that those who are myopic are also more at risk of a variety of other ocular problems (including retinal detachment, abnormal blood vessel growth, cataracts, and glaucoma).
