Myopia is a focusing condition of the eye more commonly known as nearsightedness.
Nearsighted patients typically have corneas (the clear dome on the front of the eye) that are too steeply curved or they have eyeballs that are too long.
Light entering the eye of a myopic patient focuses in front of the retina, creating blur that must be corrected with glasses, contacts, or a reshaping procedure such as ortho-k or LASIK.
