Short-sightedness, or myopia, is an eye condition in which near objects are clear and in sharp focus, but distant objects are blurred and out of focus. Myopia occurs when the crystalline lens inside the front of the eye of is too steep, or the eyeball is too long. This effectively makes the eye too strong so that objects are focused in front of the retina, necessitating a minus lens correction to push the focus back onto the retina. This is usually becomes apparent when the patient notices that they can no longer see fine detail in the distance such as the blackboard or subtitles on TV.
