Nearsighted Vision

 Nearsightedness is an eye problem that causes things at a distance to be blurred. A person with a nearsighted vision can see objects clearly when they are close but has a difficult time focusing on those that are far. Someone who is nearsighted may squint when trying to see distant things or else sit so close to the TV or bring books very near their eyes when they read. There are times when this concern causes a person to be unaware of objects that are far.

Nearsighted vision happens when the eyeball is a bit longer than normal or when cornea is steeper than the average. Mostly, nearsightedness is inherited. Nevertheless, there is evidence that suggests that intensive close-up activities like reading for long periods of time at close range or vide game playing for long hours could trigger this condition.

This condition is often detected during childhood, from the ages ten to twenty. The problem often gets worse and stabilizes in the middle to late twenties. Depending on the condition’s degree, some will only need glasses for watching a movie or driving. Others may only have clear vision just a few inches from their noses. Nearsighted conditions could be treated with glasses, contact lenses or laser methods like LASIK. Other cases include treating with corneal-shaping process, but results are often temporary in nature.
