What is Myopia and How Can it Be Corrected?

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a common refractive error that affects the way your eyes focus light. If you have myopia, you may find it challenging to see distant objects clearly, while closer objects appear sharp and in focus. Understanding myopia and exploring effective management strategies can help you maintain optimal eye health and visual acuity throughout your life.

You may also experience light sensitivity and glare.
