Myopia is the medical term for nearsightedness, which means that near vision focuses properly, but distance vision does not. Symptoms may include distant objects appearing blurry, squinting to see clearly, and headaches because of excessive eyestrain.
Myopia is a type of refractive error—which means that vision is not clear because the eye cannot focus light properly.
Severe myopia increases the risk of developing glaucoma
